“Amazing Place”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

How can these amazing people live so true to their ancient culture? They are welcoming and kind. We met a fantastic artist in her studio (the front room of her home). She was good to answer all of our questions, to explain her love of art and her purpose in the pueblo.

“History and cultural lesson”
Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

We visited the Taos Pueblo on a very cold day. We joined the 30 minutes guided tour. We were told that the beautiful dwelling has no running water, tollet and heating. It makes you appreciate the modern comfort and respect the native american culture. The place is gorgeous and you can feel the time has stopped.

“Best place we saw on New Mexico trip”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Best place we saw on our trip to New Mexico. Hard to explain - the vibes are just so incredibly relaxing, the Indians who live here are really, really nice people. The pueblo buildings are fascinating. I wonder what it would be like to live here.

“Don't miss this UNESCO site!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

If you have an extra day in the Santa Fe area, don’t miss Taos Pueblo. This was my second time there (first time was about 2 years ago) and I enjoyed it more this time as I knew my way around. This is an excellent place to purchase jewelry and crafts made by the Tiwa Indians, the inhabitants of Taos Pueblo. Prices are good and many take credit cards. The best part is that looking in the store gives you entree into the adobe homes.

If you don't have a car, you can take a day tour with Great Southwest Adventures 505-455-2700 - they also stop at a famous church. I went to Taos Pueblo the first time with them.

“Surprising Time Capsule”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Unexpected. My first visit to a Pueblo and glad I went. Practical info: only 5 minutes or so drive from central Taos, $10 admission, ample free parking, last admissions at 4:30, visitors out at 5:00.
The pueblo area is smaller than I expected and can be walked pretty thoroughly in about an hour or two. Real people do live their real non-tourist lives in the pueblo, which by choice does not have electricity or piped water, and the houses are a mix of open doors with art and crafts for sale and private back lanes with "no visitors past this point" signs. It's a nice opportunity to see what real adobe construction and it's maintenance is like. The crowded cemetery is a profoundly poignant place with handmade crosses and heartfelt inscriptions to the recently departed. Recommended.
