The 8 day package is an excellent option. You will visit all of the same towns and inns as in the 10 day package with the exception that at two of them you will only be staying one-night instead of two. We handle all the transportation details from picking you up at the Montrose or La Plata Airport and taking you to your first hotel as well as picking you up with your private tour guide at each hotel thereafter and touring you to the next town on your itinerary. On this package you will be staying at the Chipeta Resort in Ridgway, the Beaumont Hotel in Ouray, the Grand Imperial Hotel in Silverton, the Strater Hotel in Durango and the Peaks Resort in Telluride. On the segment of your journey between Silverton and Durango you will take a 3 hour ride on the famous D&SNGRR railroad with its extraordinary views and on the Durango to Telluride segment you will spend a day visiting the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park On the other segments you will enjoy some of the best scenery Colorado has to offer and discuss it all with your private tour guide. In addition, you will be provided with a $50 restaurant coupon to be used during your stay at each hotel on your itinerary with the exception of the Beaumont which does not have a restaurant on premises. Once you arrive and are checked in at your hotel you will be able to explore the town on your own, participate in activities you can arrange on your own, enjoy other restaurant experiences and spend your time as you wish until you are picked up for the next leg of your journey. After your last hotel visit you will be taken to the airport for your departure.
*Below you will see the itinerary for a 8-day package with pickup and departure from Montrose Airport. If you arrive at La Plata Airport all the components will be the same but will be arranged in a different order”.
