The old pueblo in Taos is the oldest, continuously inhabited structure in the U.S. It is a fascinating view of what life was like for the Tiwa people who have inhabited the pueblo for centuries. You can walk around for free but if you want to take pictures it will cost $16 per camera. I recommend going on one of... More

A community that learns from its past. Living in the present, while remembering the past. The church, central to what the Pueblo holds dear. Family units sharing, learning, loving, living from first light to end of day. The memorials of battles won and lost. A river that runs clear and clean. All worth your time, all worth you being present... More

I first visited the Taos Pueblo about twenty years ago. Not much had changed, except the addition of a casino, a few miles outside of the Pueblo. This visit, I spent time talking with some of the Pueblo residents, who were friendly and informative. There appeared to be a lot of construction going on, but I was told that the... More

You must take the tour which is offered every 30 minutes. They give you the history and background of the Pueblo. Believe it or not, some 50 people still live there without any electricity or running water. 2 of the structures are 1,000 years old.

The historical significance is undeniable, but frankly there is not much of interest to see, and certainly does not justify the admission price.

The admission fee is $16 per person. It is a bit steep considering what it has to offer. However, it is worth the price since certain amount of the $$ is used for the upkeep of the buildings. It is designated as a World Heritage Site and a National Historic Landmark registry after all. We didn’t join any guided tour... More

What a wonderful surprise this was! Our concierge suggested this as one of the things to do while in Taos. It was well worth the trip and the tour was amazing. We had a young man-a Red Willow native, take us around the pueblo and explained the workings of this ancient and still working pueblo.It was so interesting to see... More

We visited the Taos Pueblo on a Sunday and were very satisfied with the tour and the price of admission. We took our time, asked lots of questions and learned quite a bit about the Native American life. From reading the negative reviews, I shake my head and wonder what these reviewers were expecting. By taking our time we also... More

I've read some complaints concerning the admission fee. In my life, I've paid more for less and paid less for more. My wife and I thought it was well worth the price. Oh, and yes, we tipped the guide and bought some four dollar post cards of the church alter. We thought the tour was informative, and we learned quite... More

At $18. a person, this price tops many other like attractions. In fact, most Pueblos do not charge an entry fee. Tours are given every 30 minutes, but the guides are quick to say that they work for gratuities. There are a number of shops that sell so many things that I doubt they could have been made in the...
