This is a 90-minute outdoor walking tour offered in sun, wind, and snow. It covers about six town blocks and goes up and down a few small hills. There are generally a few indoor stops into historic buildings. This tour is not a pub crawl, however, guests will have the opportunity to purchase an alcoholic beverage at one of the stops. Dressing for the weather and conditions is important.

Adults 21+ looking for a fun, entertaining early evening activity. This is a great tour to take before dinner in downtown Breckenridge. We do not allow children/teens on this tour due to the content and language.

I booked a private tour … for me and a friend and it was FABULOUS. Ronnie, OUR TOUR GUIDE, was like a page out of the old West. Sweet, entertaining and very knowledgeable. There was even a little ghost tale thrown in…ask him about “Sylvia”. We highly recommend this tour.

Gambling was the norm in frontier towns and Breckenridge was no exception. The 1885 Colorado census listed eight gamblers and three hustlers in town. The youngest was noted as thirteen years old!
