About the tour

How did a small frontier settlement in the windswept Great Plains east of the Rocky Mountains become the vibrant capital of Colorado as we know it today? Join us as we stroll through downtown Denver, known today as LoDo, to see some of the oldest structures dating back to Denver's founding. Learn how millionnaires were made and buildings built overnight with discoveries of gold, maybe even getting a chance to see one of the first places where gold was discovered by westward pioneers! We'll also explore grand Union Station and its ties with the railroad and gold mining, as well as a historic street where the Queen City of the Plains actually began!

North America Tour Hub

We firmly believe local travel is one of the best ways we can support responsible tourism. In fact, we believe it so strongly that we’ve made it our entire business! All our tours are designed, built, and run by local experts, not some faceless corporate team located halfway around the world with no sense of the local vibe. On every tour, you get a fun, unique, and local perspective of a city, from street food to street art, hidden gems, and all the best hyper-local cultural hotspots. Our network is handpicked. Our local guides are the heart and soul of our tours, touring over 260,000 travelers annually.

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Denver with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Denver. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
