If you choose to fret about spending a few dollars to visit this ancient place, DON'T GO! This is not supported by the government like Mesa Verde and many other uninhabited places.
Consider this an invitation to touch on the lifestyles of an ancient people in the modern day.
I found it to be enchanting and an opportunity to connect with some of the residents. The day was perfect enabling me to capture many wonderful photos. By all means go on the tour and tip the guide. If you're selfish and judgmental stay away!

A rather small native American villgage in a picturesque setting. A variety of crafts and jewery is on display and for sale. Small church worth a visit. Tours can be group guided or on your own. A fee is required for a photography permit during the visit. A visit could last from a little over an hour to over half a day depending upon ones interests.

We did not mind paying to go in and also for the tour guide. this helps the people and they need it.
This is a fascinating place to visit. so full of history of the native people. we had learned a lot at the New Mexico Museum in Sante Fe so we really did not need the guided tour but our guide was very informative and friendly..hubby gave her a nice tip We have no problem with that.
Met one of the natives and he was so nice chatting with us about fishing and hunting on the land and going to the blue lake. This is new Mexico history and should be cherished

We were recommended to go to the pueblo by the attendant at the Taos visitors center. We drove there after doing a bit of shopping in town and were disappointed to find that not only did we need to pay to get in but we also had to pay to take photos. Really? We have been all over the southwest this summer and saw better attractions at Mesa Verde for less money. Unfortunately, this is a tourist trap. It has potential to be a very nice place for learning.

We were glad we went but wished we would have done the tour. I felt like the admission price of $10 per person was a bit steep. AND you had to pay an additional $6 per camera that you were going to take with you. With all that said, if you go, take the guided tour. That will make it worth the price of admission.
