“Amazing people that survived and still keep their culutre.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Thanks for the Indian guide's tour, telling the long history of the place. This is still a living village will you will not see the indians with fancy customs and colorful clothes, people here Tiwa speaking Pueblo living besides Red Willow Creek still try to preserve the culture of their sancester, current village still without running water and electricity.

Now they includes the camera fee into the ticket price, $16 for each adult, hefty price but I think it still worth the visit. The other thing I would like to mention is that some of the pictures I saw on website, the pueblo's color is beautiful reddish (maybe color enhanced?), in reality it is brown muddish color.

“History lesson”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Our visit to the Taos Pueblo was a great experience. We were pleased to have a guided tour of the pueblo by a very knowledgeable Indian guide. The history of the pueblo is remarkable. It is oldest continuously inhabited community in the US. The occupants are a very proud people living their lives much like their ancestors did hundreds of years ago, no running water or electricity.

“Disappiointing place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

The Pueblo village is historic and has been kept well. The issue we found was the selling of food and items was done with pressure and higher priced than expected.

“Going back in time in a culturally rich environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Taos Pueblo is NOT commercially driven. But if you are seeking an authentic experience and take the time to talk with the artists, take the tour to understand the history, and LISTEN - you will be enriched. If you can make it for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, you will be in for another special experience. Bonfires in the village center warm you as you watch the Procession of the Virgin Mary. And on Christmas Day, a tradition dance is performed. The Taos Pueblo closes for 6 weeks in Feb. and early March, so keep that in mind when you are doing your planning.
