My husband and I have travelled across the U.S. and many other countries. We've often taken city busy tours. This one was one of the best we've ever had. We went with our son, daughter-in-law, and 2-year-old grandson. In about 90 minutes, knowledgeable and friendly driver/guide Dave gave us and about 15 other people an excellent tour of Santa Fe, not only pointing out the various sights, but explaining much about their historical and sociocultural context. Whether you're going to be in Santa Fe for a day, a week, or a month, go on this tour early on. It will give you an excellent overview of the city and its history.
($15 for adults, $10 for children under 12.) Morning and afternoon tours leave from convenient almost-adjacent locations (Loretto Chapel and La Fonda Hotel), about a block away from The Plaza.
