As new residents of Santa Fe, we are interested in learning more about the city and it's history so we decided on a walking tour. Since it was Oct, we opted for a ghost tour. Joined by a friend who has been in Santa Fe for 30 years, we thought we'd have the best of both worlds (not knowing how long Allan had lived here). Reasonably so, our long time resident/friend was suspending her disbelief to see how much the guide knew.
I can only say, as will the others in our group, - the breadth of Allan's knowledge is beyond impressive. Not only could he speak to the history of Santa Fe but to many other facets of the city's background & development. When we booked the tour, I had no idea we selected someone who must be (if he's not already) considered an expert in what he does. Having crossed paths with another tour, the difference between the two was staggering! Thankfully the ranking on TripAdvisor helped us make the right decision.
Allan is entertaining, knowledgeable, honest, easy to schedule and reasonably priced for a private tour. If you're considering a walking tour, THIS is the one you want!!

I was charged with organizing a fun, educational tour of Santa Fe for out-of-town visitors, and Allan Pacheco was the unanimous choice of our committee for leading the group. Throughout the process, Allan was open to structuring the tour the way we wanted it, when we wanted it, and where we wanted it. Over the two months of planning, we had several major schedule changes which Allan took in stride, understanding that coordinating groups of people is sometimes worse than herding cats. He will work with you until the last moment to ensure everything is in order and to your satisfaction. Please take a look at what Allan has to offer. You will not be disappointed!

We were in Santa Fe for the HIPCO horse show, and decided to do a ghost walk. Alan Pacheco couldn't have been any more accommodating for our schedule. We even had to call him at the last minute and change our time. He was Great!! He is very passionate about the city and really knows a lot of good history about Santa Fe. I can't say enough about what a great time we had. I would diffidently recommend this tour to any one while in Sana Fe looking for things to do.

My husband and I were visiting Santa Fe during the week of May 22, 2017 and made plans to join Allan Pacheco for a private tour to hear about some of the history and paranormal experiences in this old city. What a great afternoon! Allan has an incredible base of knowledge about Santa Fe history and is a gifted story teller. He grew up in the area, so has decades-long understanding of the many cultures that have come together to make up present day Santa Fe. The tour was well-paced and well-planned out with intermittent rest stops to hear another fascinating story. Allan has a great sense of humor and connects very well with his 'audience.' We highly recommend this tour and would do it again ourselves!

Our tour guide, Allan, was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging throughout our entire tour. He's from the area so he knows Santa Fe well and has first hand investigative experience with ghosts, legends, aliens, etc. He is a genuine guy and can give you a very interesting perspective on the area and history! He can also personalize the tour to be more focused on ghosts or aliens. Fun guy and fantastic story teller!
