“Wonderful, mystical experience!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

We have visited many times but unfortunately we waited for 2hr and 40 minutes for the Indian New Year's to start which is normal I guess because they are on "Indian" time!! but we finally gave up!! Really disappointed this time, they just laughed when we politely asked. We are old and in ill health and wished for a more sincere answer.

If you are in Taos you should definitely stop in to visit Taos Pueblo. It is a Unesco heritage site that is being preserved. this is what Taos is all about to me was the visit to the Pueblo. If you are going to be n the area you may want to go the the Taos Pueblo website and check if there will be any Native ceremony or dances. We were lucky enough to see on during our visit on New Year's Day. It was the Turtle dance. Please take note that during these ceremonies there is no photography allowed so if you want to go for photography ceremonies are not the day for you. Cell phones are also a no no and will be confiscated. Though it was a little upsetting to me that some people could not seem to follow the rules. The Pueblo is not about us it is about the Native American Indians and their rules and spiritual beliefs so keep this in mind during your visit. If you attend the pueblo on a regular this will be a great opportunity for you to visit and get to see how they live and even try some of the food. If traveling with a pet they are allowed in the Pueblo but be aware that there are many and i mean many dogs rooming around that are pets of the inhabitants of the Pueblo and may be an issue with your pet. During ceremonies it is free of charge to enter the Pueblo but on regular days it is about 16.00 per person and well worth it.

“Visiting Taos Pueblo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

I have lived in Taos for six years and visited the Pueblo many times. It is always a treat, but you must remember that this is "home" to many Pueblo residents so go with respect as if someone were visiting your home. It is an attraction, but also a home.

“Especially beautiful in snow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

I have gone to the Taos in every season and over many years. It is especially beautiful with snow everywhere. The Pueblo has a lovely starkness that can be caught more clearly in the snow. It is a wonderful place at all times. The church has been painted by many great artists. Be sure to visit the graveyard as well. Depending on the season, residents sell traditional foods and crafts.

“Turtle Ceremonial Dances”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We arrived at the Pueblo and took some time to look in the little shops that were open while waiting for the ceremonial dances to begin. It was nice to see items for sale - jewelry, drums, blankets, etc. I particularly enjoyed visiting with the owners of the shops to learn more about their particular style of craftsmanship. The drumming and dancing were nice to watch.
