Horsefly History Tours: History With A Bite!
Come join Horsefly History Tours: History With a Bite! as we venture back in time to search for the hidden history lurking just out of sight in Durango. History tours can be boring but our tours reveal the darker side of Durango's past; thus, "History With a Bite!"
Learn about Durango’s Wild West history and the characters and events that have shaped this town since it was founded in 1880 by the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Together we will learn about the gunfights, ghosts, “soiled doves” and madams, outlaws, and the town’s one and only legal hanging. Durango has intriguing treasures to reveal…if only you know where to look.
Tours will be running only in October. They will resume in the Spring. Our Tours require good walking shoes. We will be entering operating businesses so we request respectful etiquette so as not to disturb patrons. There will be opportunities to sit down if need be. We will be walking the Durango sidewalks which are uneven at times. Customers need to be able to keep pace with a group as we will have a lot of ground to cover. There may be samples of alcoholic beverages on the tours.
Tickets must be purchased in advance. Please click here to purchase tickets, and for the most up-to-date dates and times.
