Take a ride back in time on an escorted vacation in Colorado and New Mexico. Begin with sightseeing in the “Mile High City” of Denver, including the historic Union Station in stylish lower downtown (LoDo). Then travel south and be awed by the natural surroundings of the Royal Gorge Route Railroad into the gorge and along the Arkansas River-noted by Teddy Roosevelt as “the trip that bankrupts the English language.” Then visit Colorado Springs to explore the Garden of the Gods with its sandstone formations below majestic Pikes Peak. Travel to Santa Fe, New Mexico for a trolley tour of this historic town, and see the artistic and mysterious sites of Spanish, Native American, and religious legend. See the Miracle Stairway of Loreto’s Chapel, and other inspiring sights. Visit the ancient cliff-dwellings of Bandelier National Monument and spend time exploring the historic Taos Plaza. Continue north to Colorado for the mountain town of Durango, founded in the gold-rush and silver-mining era, and visit Mesa Verde National Park.

Before boarding the Durango & Silverton Narrow-Gauge Railroad, enjoy a guided tour of the D&SNG Train Museum. Onboard the train, steam along the cliff-side rails through the San Juan National Forest. You’ll stay in Glenwood Springs-famous for its therapeutic natural hot springs. You’ll travel through the magnificent Rocky Mountains aboard the historic Georgetown Loop Railroad for rugged views of Clear Creek Canyon. Your guided tour of New Mexico and Colorado is a new adventure into the Old West.
