We took the Ranger led tour of long house. It was amazing to see the remnants of the buildings and actually walk through the structures. It is my understanding that this is the only house that you are actually able to walk through. The Ranger did a great job explaining the structures and history of the Pueblo people, and gives...

We chose the 10am slot which was perfect for us as it wasn't too hot at that time. We loved our guide who gave us great information of the dwelling. It's a super easy hike down and up, so if you're not used to the elevation, you'll be fine. It's not a steep hike either. We stayed towards the back... More

We loved the Long House. Well preserved with nearly intact structures. A visit to Long House is available only with purchase of a tour ticket. The cost is small, and Rangers really add a great deal of information. Important to reserve your tour in advance. Get that handled as soon as you arrive at the park, if not before. Saw... More

We had a great hike with very informative guide. The weather cooperated and everyone was amazed. Our group was excited to be in such a unique location. Guides add so much to the tour with their discussions.

We had one day to devote to Mesa Verde Park. Initially we thought we would do the bus tour, but were given what turned out to be the right advice for us. The Long House tour gave us the opportunity to get an in depth and very thorough experience, Kim, our ranger, stayed in each area as long as there... More

Our family took all three tours, and Long House was our favorite. (We loved the others as well, but we loved this one the most.) The hike that begins/ends the tour is an easy one--if you can walk a mile in your neighborhood, then you can handle the hike. The short trek down into Long House is steep, but you... More

We visited the Long House via the ranger guided interpretive tour as our last activity before leaving the national park and loved it! Ranger Bill was wonderful and the ruins are spectacular. We lucked out with weather, but it was a LONG, HOT walk from the kiosk to the cliff dwelling. Do not attempt this (especially in August) without a... More

Long House is a 2 hour 2 mile hike. It was enjoyed by our family group of nine age ranging from 15 months (in a back pack) to 65 year old grand parents. This hike requires the purchase of $4 tickets and is lead by a Park Ranger. The views, history, and scenery are outstanding. Don't miss this hike when... More

It's an amazing thing to step back in time and be able to actually BE present in a place where folks lived in the 1200's in America and try to imagine what their existence was like. This is a popular tour, so be sure to get to the Visitor's Center early to get your tickets. Our ranger was friendly, funny... More

This was a great guided tour of a pueblo ruin. It is a longer tour than the other guided tours, and you really get a close, personal look at this fantastic site. I highly recommend this tour
