This tour was great! Kristina was amazing. She was knowledgeable about the cocktails and the history behind them. We loved the small group setting! It allowed us to have a more personalized experience. Highly recommend to cocktail lovers!

A cocktail journey through space and time, like none other. Thank you KRISTINA for such a fun experience during our first-but-not-last visit to Denver!We would recommend this tour to just about everyone, because there is something for everyone here - no matter what your personal taste or preference….- A beer drinker? Calm down Francis. You will still have lots of fun. - Only like certain cocktails and worried you will have nothing to drink? Fear not, small thinker. It’s time to broaden your horizons. - Not a history buff (who cares about that statue!) but still want interesting information? Listen up - fun and useful information coming your way to amaze your friends!During this tour you will do a small loop of cocktail establishments the Lodo area, having a cocktail at each and learning about the history of prohibition and the background on cocktails that you have no idea existed. You will also make some friends and have some stories to tell. It was fun to have our guide pick the drinks for us based on “flavor profiles” instead of “type-of-spirit”. I found myself drinking an Old Fashioned and enjoying it, and I am not a bourbon person. Can’t even spell it (I had to look it up). Still, it was varietal and enjoyable.The amount of history shared during the 2.5 hours or so was perfect - it was captivating with a local twist, and the cocktails were arranged to coincide with the narrative: pre-Prohibition, during, and modern. You may also discover some new places to imbibe during your visit here.Tours like these bring together a delightful mix of people you would never meet otherwise - we had a couple from Indiana, the Texas contingent, a few locals, and was rounded out by some military sons who traveled from Japan on leave for New Years. Great mix of people and backgrounds.Our guide KRISTINA (I write it in upper case because it seems to suit her) was high energy, fun, and made the experience engaging for all. We’d do this tour again the next time we are in town for sure!

What's better than drinking craft cocktails in Denver's hip and lively Lower Downtown? Doing it with a smart and likeable guide like Lee. He had us order drinks by flavor profile and it was fun to find out the ingredients used and the names of the drinks when they arrived. We visited three distinct and well-chosen bars, each with an interesting history that deepened our experience of Denver. Who knew you could learn while drinking? This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys exploration and nightlife.

Both informative and a lot of fun! The leader Lee was personable and very attentive to the needs and preferences of our small eight person group. Lots of good conversation ensued with the three other couples all from different areas of the country. Highly recommend, you learn a lot about cocktails and their history then get to enjoy them!

Kristina was our guide. She has a education in history and raised in Colorado. We visited three local establishments where she provided history of Colorado prohibition, shared cocktails of various time periods and history of the Lodo area. She provided a lot of flexibility. Would definitely do another tour.

Great time. Felt like we were just hanging out with Lee while he told us stories about cocktails. Fun way to learn about Denver culture too. Hardly noticed it was educational. He expertly adapted the cocktails to our taste preferences while showing us something new.

I went on the Denver Cocktail Tour this past weekend and had a blast. Lee, our tour guide, provided a lot of information about cocktails and the history of Denver through the years. Totally enjoyed the drinks, of course, and all the places we went were excellent. I would highly recommend this tour. Such a perfect thing to do in downtown Denver.

A new tour to check out! It was very interesting and eye-opening as how prohibition played a role in the Denver cocktail market! Lee was very personable and full of fun facts and very interesting drinks! If you enjoy funky old time cocktails, I highly recommend it!

We took this tour on a bit of a whim and it ended up being one of my favorite parts of our trip to Denver! Kristina was so knowledgeable about the city and just so much fun to hang out with. Every place she took us had incredible drinks and I loved hearing all the history behind them. Can't recommend this tour enough!

We had Kristina and had an amazing time! We were in town for a friend’s trip. She was a great story teller and made history super fun. The cocktails were divine and our last stop was a total gem that we would never have found on our own and we ended up staying at. I would highly recommend this tour and the delightful Kristina!
