The pueblo is the one thing you must see in Taos. It's well worth taking the tour that leaves from the church on the hour. The tour is free, but contributions are appreciated.

Loved our guide, the church, the dwellings, the towering mountain behind the pueblo, the piñon pie from one of the bakeries. It is small, and is still home for many inhabitants, so be respectful.

I didn't rate this 5 stars only because it seems sad that a culture that is struggling to survive and keep its identity intact has to cater to tourists. That said, they do it well. The young man who offered us a tour was heartfelt and we hope he succeeds in attaining his education and returning to serve in leadership... More

Taos pueblo is not rated at the top of attractions in Taos. This only reflects the sad state of the American traveler. If you have only 2 hours in Taos this is the only place you should visit. You are invited to see an entirely different culture at your doorstep. Take the free guided tour for a small glimpse into... More

A definite must see when visiting Taos May through October. The only continously operating Pueblo in New Mexico, complimentary guided tours are offered on the half hour. Learn how Pueblo's are constructed, bread baked, and the life of the Taos Indians.

We had a lovely time walking around the pueblo and taking pictures. The guide was friendly, engaging, and informative. There are several shops if one is interested in native American jewelry and crafts. The mission is beautiful and worth a trip on its own. The mission was photographed by Ansel Adams.

Yes is costs too much to visit (and pay guides in addition), and the aura of entitlement is evident here, at the annual powwow, the casino and in commercial/employment dealings with the secretive Taos. But I love the place, and have visited a number of times over more than 50 years. Studying the history and social interactions between Indians, Spanish,... More

The pueblo has an interesting place in the history of the Native American community for over 1000 years of continuous habitation. There were many struggles during those years. The structures are about 70% intact. Most of the pueblo consists of shops where people are selling their crafts. Take the time to talk to the people in the shops to learn... More

I read the reviews, and there are a lot of negative ones, and they are for the most part well deserved. It's $16.00 per person (non-discounted) to wander around in this dusty, ancient village with shops sporting predictable and over-priced goods. My first hint at the tone of things was at the Church, where there was a table with post... More

If you value history, the tour of the Taos Pueblo is not to be missed. Regardless of the cost, this was worth it and more to me and my husband. We have such respect for the peopleos the Pueblo and their heritage.
