Tours in DURHAM with kids

“Please, sir, can I have some tours?”

Why, of course you can! Tours are the ultimate way for the family to experience a city or attraction, and in Durham, North Carolina there are certainly lots to choose from! 

Why not take the family on a city tour? It’s a great way to not only see this amazing The Tar Heel State  city, but a great way for kids to LEARN about the city too! You can never have too many fun facts to tell friends!

Why not take a nature tour? There are plenty of places to go with kids in and around Durham, with some spectacular wildlife and wilderness to explore and experience. You might be surprised how quickly the scenery changes!

A tour that can take you back in time? Sounds exciting! Historical tours are always a great experience with children, because they can use their imagination as they recount incredible and iconic events that happened right where they are standing!

Wildlife tours, ghost tours, food tours….see another side of Durham!

May the tours be with you!
