Live and Love Denver: Historic Neighborhood Walking Tours
As part of our popular Live and Love Denver tour series, we offer complimentary walking tours of our fabulous city.  Led by Phil Goodstein, professional tour guide, author, and local legend, we’ll spend about an hour learning the history and architecture of different historic neighborhoods around town.

Come meet your neighbors and learn more about your amazing town!

*Important: The tickets for these tours retail for $25, but are my gift to you as part of the Live and Love Denver community. Space is very limited and demand is high, so if you need to cancel your spot, please do so within 48 hours of the tour to allow someone else to fill it. And even though your ticket is free, please feel free to tip the tour guide and bring $ for his incredible books!
