This tour should be avoided at all costs. The guide was not knowledgeable nor did she exhibit much knowledge or graciousness. This was an awful experience and I highly suggest you avoid wasting your time .

We had a 3-hour tour in Santa Fe. It was half Santa Fe history tour and half Jewish history tour. Stefanie was well versed in both subjects and provided us with a great insight into both. She showed us and explained many of the major sights to us and then we also had a chance to sit down for a cup of coffee too while we talked some more. She was very smart and I was quite impressed with her wealth of knowledge of Santa Fe.

This was a fun, informative tour - great way to spend an evening in Santa Fe. Stefanie include a mix on indoor and outdoor stops which was great given it was quite cold outside. Her ‘insider’ knowledge due to her many years in the community increased credibility of the tales. Def recommend this tour.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Jewish Legacy in New Mexico tour. Stephanie is extremely well-read and well-versed in this subject matter of great interest to me. Anyone interested in learning more about the Jews of the southwest and the crypto-Jews will be enlightened by all that Stephanie has researched to share with us. Two hours well spent!

Stefanie was a solid ghost tour guide. The tour went for about 1:45, and covered a lot of the area by historic downtown. It was really clear that Stefanie has deep connections to the guiding and hospitality community in SF, as she had many stories and tidbits from other locals to share on the tour. She does a nice job giving attendees seating options throughout, too. Overall the tour doesn’t have any frills, and is a spooky way to get acclimated to SF!
