About Horsefly History Tours

Join Horsefly History Tours: History With a Bite! as we venture back in time in search of the hidden history lurking just out of sight in Historic Downtown Durango. Do you love true crime and stories honoring the grit of human survival in the Wild West? Then you will love our tours! They 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 staked 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. 

Our walking tours range from 1.5 - 3 hours and can be described as a 'stroll' on Main Avenue. Be prepared for lots of history! The Quick & Dirty Tour does not enter businesses and is considered handicap accessible. If you can navigate Durango's sidewalks then you can handle the tour. Dogs are allowed upon request. Check our website for current tours, descriptions, and times. 

We offer three tours: Quick & Dirty (history only), Hauntings & History Ghost Tour, and BOOze & Bites (light food /ghost/ history tour). Something for everyone! Bring your friends, family, or co-workers, or make new friends on the tour! Inquire about private tours.
