    One of the best art tours we have ever done
    Steve_H, Sep 2023
    Nick, our tour guide was exceptional and very interesting. His knowledge of Street Art and graffiti was insane. Also the way he referenced the art was like being in an outdoor art gallery. This tour is highly recommended for anyone who is interested in art.
    Response from Host, Mar 2024
    Nick is definitely like a walking encyclopedia! So I'm so glad you had such a great time with him, and that you joined us on what we like to say is a tour of the world's best outdoor museum. So you're right on target! Thank you so much for joining us and for the great compliments and recommendation. Thank you!
    Fantastic!!!

    Saturday morning outing

    Nick was delightful. I am a Denver native; yet on this tour I saw places I had never seen before and learned a lot about art posted on exteriors in the RINO district. We took the tour with friends and all of us really enjoyed it.

    Both my husband and I immensely enjoyed this tour. Nick was fun and informative. He has to be a tremendous teacher, as his presentation style and content were most engaging. Many thanks!

    A must while visiting Denver. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable pointing out details and names of the artists. Bring an umbrella just in case specially during summer.

    Very knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining tour guide. You will leave with more information about the street art culture and affects on the neighborhood. Make sure you have a fully charged phone/camera - you’ll be taking tons of pics.

    Spanish teacher tour guide
    Patricia_W, Aug 2021
    Enjoyed the tour guide's tone and pace. Knowledgeable guy that performed well under pressure. He was on his last day of training.
    Fascinating In Depth Exposition
    James_W, Aug 2021
    Knowledgeable guide with a good loud voice. Derp dive into the history of Denver grafitti. We learned a lot that we never appreciated before.
    Must see
    Amy_K, Jun 2021
    Must see in Denver. Was a highlight of our trip. Jana was very knowledgeable and gave us insight into the graffiti behind the scenes. Highly recommend!
    Highlight of our weekend in Denver!
    Bryan_R, Jun 2021
    The Denver graffiti tour was one of the highlights of our recent weekend in Denver. The guide Jana made the art come alive—it was so interesting to learn about the artists and the story behind the street as well as the history of the area.
    RINO graffiti/mural tour
    Kim_F, Jun 2021
    Jana was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, considerate, and fun! Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We are Colorado natives and visual artists ourselves who have not spent much time in the Rino district since moving to northern Colorado 15 years ago. We loved getting the inside information on this vibrant, evolving art form. We will look at both murals and graffiti with greater understanding and respect. The art itself was stunning and the area, though pricey and, sadly, gentrified is exciting to explore.
    I'll never look at graffiti the same way!
    Justin_C, Jul 2019
    I had never really thought much about graffiti, the history, and what it represents before the tour with James. We were visiting from Seattle and James provided insight into Denver and it's graffiti culture and how it relates to the changes taking place within the city. It's a great tour and I'm sure you'll learn something!
    Great Tour of Denver's Street Art!
    Carrie_E, Jun 2019
