I launched Denver Local Tours with my husband, Will, in February of 2018 and we LOVE our city. With over 30 years of combined hotel and restaurant management experience— we know the city inside and out. Meet the Guides: My husband and Co-Owner, Will leads the Whiskey History Outlaws Tour and the LoDo walking tour. With 20 years in the Hospitality business, he’s owned a bar, ran restaurants, sold spirits and enjoyed more than his fair share of Whiskey. He's a history and whisky enthusiast and can't get enough of Denver's wild west past. His "dad jokes" are on point so get ready to laugh.
