The pueblo is a bit too touristy but that is how the people make their living. Be sure to try the fry bread, it's the best.

We enjoyed visiting the Taos Pueblo. It is a living part of history. The Indians graciously opened parts of their homes to the public offering their items for sale. I especially enjoyed talking and sharing conversations. We tried an Indian fry bread Taco and it was delicious!

Easy access, friendly people, you're allowed free rein of the areas which are not 'residences,' but the tour consists only of:
[a] going into the historic Roman Catholic church (which you may do without any 'tour'); then,
[b] sitting in one place in the center of the pueblo 'plaza area' for roughly 15 mins and listening to the guide describe all the faults and broken promises of the past 200+ years' US governments [with the exception of positive acts taken by President Richard Nixon]; then,
[c] walking to the cemetery and listening to another 10 mins of the guide describing all the faults and broken promises of the past 200+ years' US governments [with the exception of positive acts taken by President Richard Nixon]; then,
[d] being told you are free to walk anywhere other than into the private residences...which you are told right at the entrance, you can do anyway.

Do your homework, research this and all other pueblos before you go, respect and abide by the various tribes' rules/customs/visitor guidelines, learn from what you see and hear, but don't set aside an extra half hour for at least this particular pueblo's 'tour.'

A definite place to visit when in the area. Set aside a couple of hours to wander the village and look at the numerous art establishments within it. I recommend taking the guided tour, as you will learn about the history of the place and its inhabitants current way of life.

This is a must-see for visitors to Taos. Lovely and quiet. Stunning architecture with so much history. You have to pay for the privilege of taking photographs, so be mindful of that. But the Native Americans who live there are friendly. I also bought some items from them, since I like to help support local craftsmen and women. Well worth a visit.
