Walking Tours

Awesome Walking Beer Tour!!

The Springs Craft Beer tour was fantastic!! About 2 hours total, and worth every minute! It was a Manitou Springs walking tour with stops at a few of the local establishments, and multiple beer tastings. Our tour guide, Russ, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Manitou Springs, and provided us with short stories and fun facts about the town that kept things interesting. Our path crossed through a penny arcade, and there were a couple of other stops along the way where we were given some freebies from local vendors! Truly, just a fun walk through town! The servers at the beer spots were great and gave us a lot of information about the various beers they were serving. Great tour and great way to spend time in the Springs!! The beer alone was worth the cost of the tour!! I highly recommend it!!
