Full Day Colorado Springs Private Tour From Denver
Visit the gateway to Western America and see some of the best mountain scenery in the USA. Ghost Town Museum also included.
For lots of great color and exciting things to do, take a private tour of Colorado, the 38th state of America.
There is a very diverse landscape to be found in Colorado, year round snow on the caps of the Rocky Mountains, arid desert and refreshing river canyons to name a few. All of which leads to fabulous and fascinating places to visit on sightseeing tours.
It was Spanish explorers who named the Colorado river ‘Rio Colorado’ which means coloured river due to the red silt that flowed in the river from the mountains. The State then became known as Colorado State.
It is the only state in America that is, in its entirety, over 3,200 feet above sea level. The popular tourist attraction, The Rocky Mountains, has peaks of over 10,000 ft high.
When you are thinking about a trip to Colorado, although you can very happily do it, it is not a state for lounging around sunning yourself by the pool, it is more for getting outdoors and being active. Skiing in the Rocky Mountains during the winter or hiking in the summer all the while dining out on food and wine produced by the locals.
There are a great number of very interesting and beautiful places to take sightseeing tours or private tours when you are in Colorado.
One particular fascinating tour to take is to the Ghostly places of Colorado, of which there are a few! Hauntings are, for many people of Colorado, a relatively common thing to experience especially in the buildings that still exist from the old west era.
It is not just buildings; there are the Colorado Forest Spirit and Sand Creek Ghosts. Who could not love touring these places!!
You cannot be disappointed on a trip to Colorado no matter what your likes and dislikes are; you are catered for very nicely in this beautiful State of Colorado.
In Ski resorts like Aspen the blue skies and mild conditions in January to March, make it ideal for winter breaks. National holidays are always entertaining times to visit any state but once you are aware that it can be crowded, accommodation and sightseeing tours are more expensive. The harvest months of September and October are very popular times to visit as the weather is amicable and the harvest festivals are brilliant.
Colorado is yet another State that is not the cheapest, but that does not mean you cannot get good prices if you look hard enough. An average price of a meal for two people in a mid-range restaurant is around $70. A Combo meal at McDonald's is $7. Imported beer can reach as much as $10 a bottle. And a cappuccino in a state known for its cafes is around $5. Look at different private tour operators for the best tour which may not always be the cheapest.
When travelling to Colorado, you are going to a state that is the highest altitude in America and therefore there is a slight possibility of Attitude sickness. To avoid this drink lots of water and take your time getting to your destination, so your body adjusts. There is no alcohol served to anyone under the age of 21, and this is strongly adhered to here. Be careful of your possessions especially in crowed places
Colorado has on average more sunny days than other states in America with around 260, it may be freezing and snowing but the sun remains to glow. The winter months are usually cold and snowy especially in elevated ground during January. Temperatures are as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius. The summer months are usually warm with dry days and a bit chilly at night time with July the hottest. September and October are warm and great months for private tours.
