Took the tour with 4 adults and 2 teenage girls. Many interesting facts, with a mix of comedy and ghost stories. Our guide Patrick did a great job. The teenagers got a bit bored.

our daughter made reservations for us on the Boulder city tour. Was very nice, and the tour guide was from Michigan whick made it more interesting. Not a real comfy bus, but more hippie-like and something to talk about.

Tour guide was entertaining but the bus was very uncomfortable. Have taken similar comedic tours in other cities this was only moderately enjoyable
