Small groups of all ages, grandparents, parents and children. This tour is most popular with women but we welcome men as well! This is a good summer afternoon activity when summer rainstorms are common or a nice winter activity for those who don't ski or need a break from skiing. We can also create a private tea for your group with advance notice. Great for bridal groups, family reunions and corporate groups. We can accommodate up to 14 people.
What guests say
"What an amazing event! I have lived in CO for 25 years and learned so much about our history in just a few short hours while sipping on tea with my daughters 11 and 13. Such a great experience!"
"An interesting tour of a historical home in Breckenridge. Our knowledgeable "hostess" provided many details of life in a mining town at the turn of the 20th century. After a fun short course in proper tea etiquette we enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea."
