The 8 day packages are 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 La Plata Airport and taking you to your first hotel as well as picking you up at each hotel thereafter and touring you to the next city on your itinerary. On this package you will be staying in ‘Standard Rooms’ at the Strater Hotel in Durango, the Peaks Resort in Telluride, the Chipeta Resort in Ridgway, the Beaumont Hotel in Ouray and the Grand Imperial Hotel in Silverton. On the last segment of your journey between Silverton and La Plata you will take a 3 hour ride on the famous D&SNGRR railroad to marvel at the 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 a picnic at one of the spectacular spots along the way. Because the places you could visit are determined by seasonality as well as weather conditions on any specific day, your driver will offer you a choice of options and you will pick the one that sounds best to you. Also, 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 Hotel which does not have a restaurant on premises. Once you arrive and are checked in at your hotel you will be given the chance 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 La Plata Airport for your departure.
