We enjoyed seeing all the structures and buildings that were a part of this village. It was amazing to see all the history of that culture. It was truly educational and worthwhile.

There is no other place like it in the world. Still a living, functioning community dating from the days before the Spanish conquerors came seeking gold. A "must see" spot for all Americans.

Let me begin by saying that I have such mixed feelings about the Taos Pueblo. On the one hand, it is stunningly beautiful in its way, and located in an equally beautiful location. The lines and angles of the adobe is visually appealing, especially to a photographer like me. The fact that the inhabitants choose to live without electricity and... More

We took a guided tour of the place. It took about 30 minutes and was given by a very knowledgeable young lady who left the pueblo and then came back to instill love of nature in her children. There is a free will donation at the end. It was interesting to see people working on the pueblo putting a mud... More

So many missed opportunities to teach visitors about the pueblo way of life and history. How about a pueblos set up as they lived 50, 100 years ago and 200 years ago? Maybe a museum with properly labelled artifacts? A trip up to the top of one of the multistory buildings (with appropriate steps and safeguards)? Living history talks by... More

This pueblo is one of the oldest in the entire country, with buildings that date back 1,000 years. It has been continuously inhabited by successive generations of the original residents, and they still live as their ancestors did, with no electricity or running water! A must-see, for sure.

The entrance fee is too high and on top of this after the guide told us her name the next subject was more money in the form of a tip, The tour is only about 20 minutes. You do learn some interesting historical facts, however it is first and foremost a money making business, which I found a major turnoff.

This place advertises as one of the oldest settlements on the North American continent...and it looks it. It is very similar to the thousands of such that can been found all over Mexico and central america. They now allow photography of the place as they use to charge for bringing in a camera. Now they have a shiny new casino... More

Considering almost the entire town is overpriced at least this gives you some insight into an ancient culture. The tour was very interesting with ample opportunity to ask questions. The tour was free but tips were encouraged. Many of the crafts people offered their wares along the way but no one forces you to buy and everyone was very polite.... More

The Taos Pueblo is an area that should not be missed if you are visiting Santa Fe. It is such a great example of how the ancestral puebloans lives hundreds of years ago. Definitely take the guided tour with a person from the pueblo. It was extremely informative. We enjoyed wandering around from shop to shop and seeing the artisans... More
