The Rocks & Brews Tour
10:00 am - 3:00 pm (5 hours)


Take a panoramic ride into the foothills surrounding Golden, Colorado for a visit to 2 of Colorado’s most popular attractions. Your first stop will be Red Rocks Amphitheatre, an acoustic marvel where 9000 seats are set in the red sandstone rocks overlooking the city. Here, you can explore the Red Rocks Visitor’s Center, designed as a tribute to the many musical groups that have performed at Red Rocks during its rich history.


Next stop: MillerCoors in Golden, Colorado. A visit to the largest brewery west of the Mississippi will include a 35 minute self-guided tour of the facility followed by freshly brewed samples in the beer tasting room! Make sure you plan for the effects of Denver’s high altitude, especially for the hiking option. Stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, and bring an extra layer such as a fleece or rain jacket. If inclement weather is an issue we will do our best to provide an alternative option.


Cost: $68 per person (Includes transportation, a professional tour guide, bottled water, a boxed lunch, and beer tastings.)

Deli Sandwich Box Lunch Menu:
Choice of Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef, or a Vegetarian Milanese
Chips, Pasta Salad, Fruit, a Cookie, and a Soda or Water

*Please Note: Attendees must be 21 years or older to participate in this tour. Also, Red Rocks Amphitheater’s event schedule is constantly changing, so there is a possibility that if something books in the amphitheater itself, we may only have access to lower areas and the gift shop, not the main amphitheater or Visitors Center.



A Celestial Day in Boulder Tour
9:00 am – 2:00 pm (5 hours)


This tour will be a true adventure of the senses as you take in the beautiful surroundings of Boulder. First you will travel to the nearby Chautauqua Park area, where a trailhead located just off the main road provides easy access to the beautiful foothills! The City of Boulder began preserving wild lands over 100 years ago and this popular hiking area is a direct result of those efforts. Hikers will enjoy an easy to moderate hike with some great views of the Front Range and the mountains beyond. What a perfect place to commune with nature and take in the outdoors of Colorado, the very heart of who we are!

Next you will venture into town to enjoy afternoon tea at The Boulder Dushanbe Tea House. Designed and built by more than 40 artisans in several cities of Tajikistan, Boulder’s “sister” country, the Tea House features a hand-carved, hand-painted ceiling as well as ornate, ceramic panels. In addition to a tantalizing dining experience, you may sip the exotic teas for which Dushanbe is known!

Cost: $68 per person (Includes transportation, a professional tour guide, bottled water, and limited-menu lunch at The Boulder Dushanbe Tea House.)
