The tour is about 20 minutes long and covers their church, the graveyard, and the open plaza. They point out a bread oven along the way. that's it. After that, you are allowed to wander from shop to shop in case you wish to buy something. Buying at the pueblo is tax-free, which is nice, but there was not a huge variety. I did not find the cost of the tour worth what I saw either as a tourist or shopper. I would not recommend this.

This is such an interesting and historical place to see. We had a nice tour of the old church, cemetery and grounds by one of the local Native Americans who lived there. There are actually five different tribes that still live there. We bought so many nice handmade articles there, not to mention yummy fry bread. Enjoy your visit. There is an entrance fee charge.

Our friends took us here. I really didn't want to but i'm glad I did. the guys in the parking lots were helpful and very nice. We felt more welcome when we got to the window where you pay your fees. The lady was so nice and took her time to explain everything to us. was a lot of people, guess cause it was a weekend. Go you will enjoy it and take the tour and if you like to shop this is the place.

visited the pueblo and took a tour with a local member of the pueblo. viewed many homes where we were welcomed to talk and
shop for art. walked freely around both the north and south houses, marveling at the living treasure. the people of the pueblo are proud citizens, be respectful.
