Informative and worthwhile. The pro choice demonstrators at the Denver Capital building and grounds were an unfortunate pain in the posterior
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hi Thomas, thank you for sharing your experiences, and for writing this positive review. I’m so glad that you liked your tour. I understand about the protesters. Because we stop at the Capitol, we run into protesters of every kind, at this stop. Most of our guests appreciate seeing examples of democracy in action, even if they may not agree with the various causes. Of course this is beyond our control. We always keep our guest safe, and we have never had a situation involving anything but peaceful protesters on any of our tours. Thank you for your patience. I hope that you can come back and see us again sometime. Thanks again, Bill

Very interesting back stories. Guide Bill was fun & knowledgeable. If he didn’t know something he readily said “I don’t know”. Small group, 2.5 hrs was the right amount of time. Maybe a little western history highlights could be added.
