Haunted History Denver Tour with DWS Coach
When you hire someone to drive for you, it’s because you don’t want to deal with any hassles—with traffic, with securing wheelchairs, with calling every phone number on every billboard. Luckily, DWS Coach deals with all these issues, and with a personal touch: the owner, Drake Scott, also serves as the driver. A former music teacher and amateur entertainer, Drake is also commercially licensed and medically certified through the Department of Transportation, so every ride—whether it’s a rowdy party, a tour to view Denver’s shuttle to a wedding, birthday, or prom—is both fun and safe. Rides take place in carefully-cared-for vehicles, such as a refurbished school bus whose cramped two-person seats and metal interior have been replaced with more luxurious couch-style seating, weathered wood panels, and backseat bullies that use only the politest swears.
