“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2015

I felt like I was on a cruise line tour that only wanted to show me where to buy something. I expected to go inside some of the buildings, but we really didn't. In the guides defense, he did point out some interesting things to go see, but was really pushing buying at certain places. Guide did know history, but his presentation was lackluster. just don't expect to go into any of the places.

“Great introduction to Santa Fe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

A lovely way to get introduced to the culture, economy and history of Santa Fe. Our guide, Peter Weiss was excellent, as he is a resident, world traveler and has a career in the art community. We saw the major sites and gained some insight into the rich history of Santa Fe.

“A great way to get a lay of the land!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Our tour guide was Tom Gallegos. We met at the La Fonda. We were taken to the oldest house in the country, the Loretto Chapel, the Miguel mission, an extensive tour of the state capital, which had some beautiful art work, and the plaza, which included an introduction to some neat street vendors, stores, and restaurants. Tom knew a lot about the history and gave great suggestions for other things to do. If you're coming to Santa Fe (especially if it's your first time), take this tour, with Tom, before doing anything else!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Our tour had exactly the 3 of us--one other bsides the two of us. And it was a wonderful guide with inside knowledge of things I would never have known and would have mssed. Ended at 11:30. 1 hour 45 mins. Included secret staircase in Loretto church. Well worth $14
