Overview
Soak up the scenery and culture of the Rocky Mountains—even if you have a limited time—on this half-day tour from Denver. Check out the sandstone acoustics of Red Rocks Amphitheatre, drive through alpine forests on the scenic Lariat Loop, and get panoramic views of Colorado’s Front Range from atop Lookout Mountain. It's a great way to see the outdoor playground on Denver’s doorstep without renting a car.
