About Colorado Walking Tours, LLC

Explore the Real Denver!

We currently offer group and private tours that bring Denver to life:

Western Renaissance- Explore the history behind Denver's theater and entertainment district. Enjoy evening in the "City of Lights". Discover how old world elegance came to the new American West through architecture and city planning.  Stop for a cool beverage at one of our hidden gems featuring craft beer.

The Dead Beat- What do the Grateful Dead and Beatniks have to do with Denver? Find out as you follow the path of famous Beat Poets who went on to spark magic bus tours of the 1960's.  Discover Denver's oldest bar. Includes dispensary stop, no smoking on the tour though.

Trains, Trolleys, and Tramps- Discover  Union Station and  Denver's rich transportation history. Learn how railroads shaped our city and the  history of homelessness and poverty in this boom and bust town.  Grab a drink alongside the tracks like the original tramps, only a little classier.

About Your Guide

Meet Summer Waters

Summer Waters is an accomplished public speaker and Emmy-Award winning video producer. In 2011 she became a Certified Interpretive Guide. This sparked her enthusiasm for leading groups of people on hikes to connect with nature and history. Since that time she has guided nature hikes and small plane flights in Colorado and Arizona, organized festivals, and worked with communities across the western United States on growth-related issues. Summer Waters has a long family history in Colorado and has lived in the Front Range off and on since 1996. Her interest in Beat Era poets stems from stories told by her mother who went to UC Berkeley in the 1960’s.  Summer grew up working in her dad's music store in Washington State, known to locals as The One Stop Bee Bop Shop.
