Definitely something everyone should see. Taos Pueblo is an experience that is worth the time to see. There isn't a whole lot to do on a normal visiting day except walking around. We saw the Pueblo on our own and walk with the tour. We joined a walking tour which I recommend.

I was expecting to see a bit more of how the native americans are living without electricity or running water. They charge a lot to come onto the reservation and to have the right to photograph. Then, you must tip someone for a tour if you so desire. The same information is in the brochure you receive. You cannot take... More

Had an amazing visit to Taos Pueblo. All of the people were friendly and open to answering questions. The 30-minute tour was interesting and informative ... our tour guide was really knowledgeable and she answered all of our questions. Visited some of the shops and talked to some of the residents working on their places. Amazing that some people still... More

This is a place I have wanted to visit and when In did I was not disappointed. The structures themselves are fascinating and the history quite interesting. The people of the Pueblo are warm and friendly. Many artists sell their art here and it is beautiful.

Taos Pueblo people still inhabit this 1000 year old complex. Be sure to take the free tour - the history of this place is amazing. We shopped in many of the structures. It was wonderful to see the inside of these adobe dwellings. This is a piece of history you don't want to miss.

Fee just to enter courtyard. Can't get close to structure that looks like it was built and constantly repaired for tourists. Doesn't seem to be ancient (maybe that's why you can't get close). It's obvious that nobody lives there except for show. You can only enter the souvenir shops. Tour guide didn't discuss customs, just how the Spaniards forced Christianity... More

Although we did indeed enjoy seeing this very important part of our countries history we had a tour guide who was either having a bad day or is just angry with the world. She mentioned how she grew up there, moved away and then recently returned with her sons who she thought were getting too involved in today's technology. I... More

You need to take a tour to best understand the Pueblo. The church has a lot of character. Beautiful wooden doors, simple but beautiful stain glass windows and very nice altar and interior. The key is to visit the homes where they are selling items. The last home on the right as you leave the Pueblo area sells Puebloan items... More

Very stunning and thought provoking. Amazing that the river/creek that runs thru the property is their drinking water--and they use no means to purify it to this day. Amazing history and amazing that it still stands. Make sure you take the tour!!!
