Took the Cliff Palace tour on a semi-raining day, but it was still beautiful! Tour guide was very informative and well worth the $5 the park charges for the tour! I think a visit to the park is incomplete without taking the guided tour. It's...More

Awesome guided tours allow us a close up look into the sites and live commentary of what had taken place. The tours require us to crawl though a few tights spots, climb ladders and steps. So please ready for that. Yes bring water.
