History lessons would be much better retained if all could be taught in this type of atmosphere. Absolutely must go and do a tour by one of the guides first thing. As with any tour, be prepared to tip in cash. Our guide had lived on the property until he was 13 and showed us which home. While the group... More

We were excited to see this and what you see is what's in pictures. However, it was expensive for how small it is, how quickly you can see it, and that the tour guide never showed up. It's worth seeing but not for $16 and no guide or signs to learn much about it.

It was a "dance day" when we rolled in so no cameras allowed. A girl gave us a short tour, we got the history of the church the importance of the creek and why the men were yelling from the roof tops. She then begged for tips and offered to answer questions, most of which she answered with "We don't... More

I highly recommend a visit. This was my second time. The pueblo is beautifully situated and it is heartening to hear that this group of Native Americans were able to regain control of their ancestral land and protect it from development. The tour was worthwhile and another way to support the preservation of this treasure. I really appreciated the respect... More

Very disappointed in our visit. Very expensive to get in and the only attractions were shops located in almost all of the buildings. I did not come to buy overpriced trinkets and certainly did not expect to pay to be able to buy. Was not worth the drive from Santa Fe. Also, if the Pueblos are really important to history... More

We learned so much from Kevin, a student (headed off to grad school in the fall) and former resident of the pueblo who shared its history. It's a fascinating place in a beautiful spot. Take a moment to sit by the stream and eat some frybread as you think about what life here has been like over so many years.

This is a must see when in Taos. You can see how the people lived for hundreds of years. Try to visit during one of the feasts. I do not recommend the guided tour. It lasts about twenty minutes. Our guide was not that engaging, you can read the pamphlet and learn more. Just ask questions as you view the... More

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
