Long time resident? New transplant? Either way, this club is for you! Find out what makes our city the remarkable and beautiful, progressive and controversial place it is!
Our lead and seasoned tour guide, Damon Kupper, will take Peak Touring Club members on 6 (six) exclusive, specially-themed tours, one each month, May through October. Club members ride in the Peak shuttle and stop at points of interest to disembark, see details up close, walk, and take in views, while Damon shares stories and insights into the history, culture, and architecture of the places we visit.
Tours will be interlaced with photos and music for a truly entertaining tour experience! This year, we've curated some optional add-on tours for club members as well.
Members receive a Peak Passport & Travel Journal, lanyard, and discounts on Peak's public tours for members and their guests.
We offer sliding scale pricing on membership, starting at $35 per tour.
"Our tour guide Damon was fantastic in sharing a varied history of the area including local legends and myths, agriculture, culture and the impact of the changes brought to the region. The stops we made were great and added to the experience." AlyssaP via Viator
