- Live Guide
- Instant Confirmation
- Group Tour
This early morning 5 mile adventure starts with an amazing overlook at Liberty Memorial, then trekking down the hill past Union Station. We’ll stop at a local Mexican shop for refreshing fruit juice as we explore the architecturally and culturally diverse neighborhood of the Westside. We learn about the historical West Bottoms, as well as the Pendergast era in addition to experiencing alleyways lined with street art. This hike is full of Instagramable spots and hidden Kansas City gems. This won’t be a leisurely stroll in flip flops, as we go up steep hills and staircases and sometimes walk in direct sun. You'll need good walking or running shoes and your water bottle! We also offer tours in Spanish! ¡También ofrecemos el recorrido completamente en español!
