Great tour

This tour was amazing. The park guides was very knowledgeable and friendly. The whole family enjoyed it. Take plenty of water as it gets fairly hot on the trail.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a 2.5 mile hike over mostly asphalt path until you get to the 100 foot climb down into the site (which you have to climb back up). We went on a very warm summer morning. Take lots of water and be prepared to be out about 2 hours plus. The site is well worth the hike - great... More

Took a morning tour to avoid the hottest point of the day, good choice. Smaller group (25) and a great ranger ((Beth) made for a great tour. You really get a feel for how they lived 800 years ago. Photographers dream!

This was much more strenuous than the Cliff Palace, but they give lots of time at the end to go your own pace, which was really helpful. The site itself was really beautiful and we were happy that we made the effort to go. Our ranger made the story of the place memorable as we learned of the lives and... More

I did a lot of research online to see which tour to do at Mesa Verde and settled on the Long House for a couple of main reasons - fewer people in the tour group, and you could go inside the dwelling. We had me (39 years old), my mom (64 years old), and my two kids (ages 14 and... More

The drive up to the Weatherill Mesa is curvy and steep so leave yourself plenty of time. This is a ranger-led tour. It's longer and I think more in-depth than the others. This one really captured mine and my kids' imaginations. We were so impressed with all the Rangers we met and listened to. This tour was worth coming back... More

The tour is longer than the others but mainly due to the extra time needed to walk to the edge of the canyon (others are closer to to the meeting point). The rangers are extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. The site is impressive. Cliff palace is bigger/more impressive, but you can't walk inside of the ruins like you can at the... More

We had the most wonderful experience while taking this hike. It began to rain while we were in the ruins then the hail started. When, after just a few minutes, it stopped, a waterfall came down from the overhang and a rainbow stretched across the vista. Have to admit there isn't much that would compare to that.

If you can only take one of the three guided tours, take this one. It offered a slightly smaller crowd because it is farther to get to. It also was a bit longer of a tour with the added walking to get to it, but this allows a longer amount of time with the guide to learn about the area.... More

To see the Long House pueblo it requires a round trip hike of about 2 1/2 miles. A worthwhile hike. The Long House is unique in that the NPS allows visitors to walk through the pueblo. Just for this privilege it's definitely a must see of the pueblos in Mesa Verde. The hike can be strenuous for the inexperienced hiker... More
