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. From prominent town visionaries to immigrants, dangerous saloons, hangings, and notorious outlaws to “soiled doves” and red light districts; Durango had it all. Tours typically end at a local “watering hole.”

Our walking tours are about 90 minutes. We primarily walk outside with occasional uneven sidewalks. Because some of the establishments we enter have staircases to access them, we are not handicap accessible.  Check our website for current tours and times.
