Question on Tour Tickets?

Question on Tour Tickets?

We will only be able to be in the park for one day. If we get to the ticket station first thing in the morning, will we have issues getting tickets for all the tours? Are the tickets for a certain time or just when you show up at the site? When is the first tour during the summer?

thanks,

In the summer they may limit you to only either Cliff Palace or Balcony House, just depends on how busy the park is. Spruce Tree House is self guided. If you get to the park in the morning, you should be fine. The tours are at a specific time. Check on www.nps.gov/meve

From which direction will you be arriving? If Cortez, MV tour tickets will now also be available at the Colorado Welcome Center there up to two days prior. Same day tickets need to be purchased in the park.

We will be staying in Cortez the night before but arriving probably after the Welcome center closes.

If we can only do one, which one would you recommend(Balcony or Cliff)?

Thanks for the help,

If you can only do 1, then Cliff Palace, quite a spectacular place. Spruce Tree House is my favorite cliff dwelling and is is a self guided tour which I like to do in the morning...birds, shade quiet!!! Enjoy your visit.
