What's LoDo? I’m happy you asked! Lower Downtown or as we call it - LoDo is Denver’s oldest neighborhood which is home to some of the best restaurants and attractions in Denver. On this 1 hour walking tour your savvy local guide will share fascinating history and point out local hot spots (where to eat and drink). We walk about 1.5 miles where we bring to life the past, present, and future of our beloved city. This tour is perfect for those who have limited time and a busy schedule. At the end of the tour you will feel more like a local and less like a tourist!

Thanks a lot for booking your tour on Cool Destinations.
This was one of the best walking tours ever. I learned a lot and the pace was perfect. We made enough stops and the jokes were great. Excellent job!
We learned so much about Denver -- current events and history -- from this hour and a half tour. Rachel is extremely knowledgeable, as well as entertaining. For example, we were excited to see the headquarters of the gangster and con artist Soapy Smith, who we learned about on a tour we took in Alaska. We plan to come back and see all the things we learned about on the tour that we didn't have time to see on this trip!
Rachel was great. She made it fun and is very knowledgeable. We got a great overview of Denver and even went back to a few of the places she showed us.
I had a couple of hours to kill in the city and décided To do this tour. Im so glad that I did ! Rachel Wars an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories and history that she shared. She also recommended a couple of placés to return to and explore further. If I would have had more time I definitely would have done so. Thanks Rachel!
