Boulder's Best Sites, Chautauqua Park, Pearl Street Mall and others, with your private guide


The Best of Boulder Tour is designed to show you what makes Boulder so special, whatever the season or time of day. Nestled in a valley at the base of Rocky Mountains, your Boulder private tour has something for everyone. We'll start with a guided hike at Chautauqua Park, at the base of the Flatirons rock formation, also home to the historic Dining Hall and Chautauqua Auditorium.
Then we'll visit some of Boulder's best overlooks in its 35, 000 acres of open space and miles of hiking trails. Besides its natural beauty, top Boulder attractions include the pedestrian Pearl Street Mall, with its landmark Hotel Boulderado, Boulder Theater and Courthouse. It also has many shops, restaurants and street performers.
The University of Colorado campus has always been an important part of Boulder. Its beautiful campus features the Bolder Boulder 10K running race, Fiske Planetarium, the Shakespeare Festival and numerous free museums. John is the photographer and author of two photography books on Boulder.

Itinerary

Before your Boulder tour, I'm happy to answer questions about Boulder and your expectations. This is a private, custom tour. Pick-up and drop-off at your hotel lobby, when you like. I'm creative and flexible.
First stop is Chautauqua Park for spectacular views, easy walking and historic architecture.
Next, continue west up the Flagstaff Mountain Road to several overlooks of Boulder Valley and also the Rocky Mountains. Return to Boulder and a short drive up Boulder Canyon to Boulder Falls.

Now, we'll go east to Davidson Mesa for Boulder Valley's best view point and some easy hiking on flat trails. Afterwards, a sightseeing tour of east Boulder, with its well-preserved barns and the Walden Ponds Wildlife Preserve.

We can stretch our legs with a tour of the beautiful University of Colorado campus, with its many free museums. Finally, a walk through the Boulder's famous Pearl Street Mall, complete with historic architecture, museums, varied restaurants and street performers.
