Visit Union Station, stylishly renovated and fully revitalized into a modern-day meeting place and transit hub and Larimer Square, renowned as the block where the city began. Free time this afternoon gives you the opportunity to linger longer in the places that interest you most or explore someplace new... take a bicycle ride along Cherry Creek, catch a game at Coors Field, head to the 16th Street Mall by trolley or on a leisurely walk along the pedestrian promenade to stroll or shop as you wish or simply relax at your Four Seasons hotel, enjoying the pool or the spa.

En route from Denver to Colorado Springs, enjoy a morning jeep tour to the summit of famous Pikes Peak. After lunch, visit the Garden of the Gods, designated a National Natural Landmark in 1971. Picture a giant 1,300-acre rock garden, composed of towering red sandstone formations sculpted by rain and wind over millions of years, against a backdrop of snow-capped Pikes Peak, and you’ll have an idea of the wonders you’ll discover here.

Drive into the mountains, traversing beautiful Wilkerson Pass to the two-mile-high city of Leadville. Isolated mining towns like Leadville are tucked into the mountains all over Colorado, whispering tales of fortunes won and lost during the heyday of the gold rush days. The discovery of gold in 1859, and later silver and lead, turned Leadville into one of the wealthiest cities in the nation for a time, attracting the rich, the hopeful and the infamous to its streets, show houses, saloons and theatres by the thousands. As one of America’s last remaining authentic mining towns, Leadville has a wealth of historical attractions, including the federally chartered National Mining Hall of Fame Museum, the Healy House & Dexter Cabin State Museum, and the Tabor Opera House. Enjoy free time to explore the town’s 7-block National Historic Landmark District before continuing through breathtaking alpine passes to the chic resort town of Vail for a two-night stay.


Meals: B, D

The largest single-mountain ski resort in the US, Vail boasts 5,500 acres of wide-open and forested terrain.

Following your walking tour, a late-morning visit to the Colorado Snowsport Museum discovers Colorado's long history of taking to the slopes. The remainder of the day is free for you to enjoy Vail as you wish. Popular all year round, in summer Vail tempts with music and dance festivals, mountain biking, hiking, river rafting, horseback riding and myriad culinary diversions.


Meals: B, L

Day 6: Rocky Mountain National Park

En route to Boulder, drive into Rocky Mountain National Park along the Trail Ridge Road, a designated national scenic byway and the highest continuous paved highway in America, on a head-turning journey through a beautiful alpine wonderland.

Arrive late afternoon in Boulder, nestled along the foothills of the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains, and spend the evening as you wish.

If you wish, you have an opportunity to rise early for a hot air balloon ride* and a champagne toast as you soar with views of the Rockies during the dawning of a new day, followed by breakfast back at your hotel (additional cost).

Questions & Answers

Question: I have traveled with Tauck in the past, and one of the tours I went on featured a special for single travelers. Do you still offer tours that are geared more toward single travelers than couples?

Tauck still offers Solo Savings on select departures. These adventures offer camaraderie with like-minded travelers who share similar interests.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

The tour was one of our best. Tauck's attention to detail and covering nearly 100% of our costs or fees and booking 5* hotels is why we liked the trip.

Fantastic vacation! Exceeded all our expectations! Trip of a Lifetime!!!

Tauck delivered as promised and more. The tour director was very helpful and knowledgeable. We wouldn't hesitate to book with them again.

Tauck provides great tours. This is our 4th with Tauck. They provided transport for us even when our itinerary was different than usual. The Tauck tour director was wonderful.

The Tour director (Mark) is excellent, the accommodation were first class and convenient and most included meals were very good. We also were blessed with a wonderful group of fellow travelers which I believe is due to Tauck's reputation.

Tauck does a wonderful job in providing a variety of great travel experiences in a worry free environment where every small detail is taken care of.

Both AffordableTours.com and Tauck are very professional organizations who ensure your traveling experiences are exceptional. Highly recommend both and we keep coming back to book with both.
