“You need to go experience this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Taos Pueblo was not only a wonderful opportunity for my family to experience what a pueblo is like, but also the wonderful residents of the pueblo. We met friendly craftspeople who told us the stories behind their pottery, jewelry, paintings, etc... This is a great place to go. It is well worth the drive to Taos from Santa Fe. We took the High Road and stopped in Chimayo (which is known for its weaving). Before we left Taos we ate at Orlando's. The best restaurant we experienced on our trip to NM.

“Waste of time.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

I don't get what other people saw that I missed. Admission fee to walk around and look at jewelry that looks like it could have been made in Bali. I had some fry bread, and wished I could take the woman with me who made it! It was delicious. Other than that, I give it a big "so what." I really wanted this to be better.

Authentic small houses in an amazing site. They're surrounding by beautiful mountains. If you want to take picture you have to spend more $. We stayed only a hour, but would have stay probably more time if it wasn't that cold. It's a great place to bring your kids and teach them about the pueblan people.

“Authentic and Moving Experience at Christmas Festivities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

My husband, daughter and I attended the Christmas Eve bonfires and procession and the Christmas Day Deer Dance at the Taos Pueblo. There are no cell phones or photos allowed which was very respected by the hundreds in attendance. The bonfires occur at sunset and are throughout the pueblo, ranging from medium to large, and are completely dramatic against the mountain sky. This festivities are very genuine and heart-felt for the Pueblo residents and the activity is really fantastic. The Deer Dances involve many of the pueblo people and occur in stages. All is done with no explanation and you are not allowed to ask. In the cold, the performers wear lovely but light dresses, some of the men are bare-chested, there are real animal skins and heads worn. We were amazed by the depth of connection for the participants and felt a welcomed and respected audience. We would highly recommend these activities if you are in the Taos area around Christmas. The ceremony times are approximate and we stayed for several hours. If you were coming on a regular day, you would spend less time here.

“A look into the past, Taos Pueblo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Approaching the Taos Pueblo is a buliding block ot structures on the on the edge of the earth. The Taos Pueblo is a collection of small houses stacked one on another. Colored in bright colors the pueblo will leave a lasting impression. If you happen to be visiting on fiest days don't miss it, tasty indian tacos and other Taos indian foods, mixed with the dancing. This is a day you will tell your friends about for many years!
