Carlos was an amazing guide. Friendly, funny, knowledgeable. We learned so much on our tour about things we had no idea existed in Santa Fe. Food was also very good. Margarita’s were tasty. Highly recommend this tour.
From the customer service ahead of time from the owner checking on our food needs, to the meals and relationship built around the food - this is a "Don't Miss Out" kind of tour. Our tour guide, Carlos, was a gem. And not even a hidden gem! It was an honor to have him host us, and also see the respect the whole community from wait staff, general manager, store employees and those just walking by had for this kind man. His passion for his city, the soul of the food and his way of words made it so much fun. The food was great, convo even better and the tour around the nooks and cranny's of historic streets was great as a first timer to Santa Fe. Sign up now, you'd be sad to miss out.

Anita is the best. She more than made up for a very rainy day
, Oct 2019
Anita was prompt, extremely knowledgeable about the area and its history. Our tour of the Pueblo was cut short due to the rain but she filled us in. In addition she was very attentive and caring of the individual needs of the group. A favorite stop was the Earthship 'off the grid' housing development .

8pm - The Ghost Tour of Old Town - New Mexico's oldest Ghost Walk - Since 2001!
Fun Little Tour
, Oct 2019
We had a very enjoyable time on this tour. I have been on Ghost Tours in New Orleans and Savannah. While this tour is short in distance it more than made up for it in detailed history of the buildings and grounds we walked by or on. We did not see anything out of the ordinary but that does not mean that each trip will yield the same result. Our tour guide Bren was knowledgeable and entertaining with her retelling the various events that happened in old town. We will be the various businesses where reported activity has been documented just to see if we have a chance at experiencing some of the events ourselves. I do recommend taking this tour as part of your visit in Albuquerque because it is enjoyable and the interaction with our guide added to our experience.
Our knowledgeable and personable tour guide gave us the low-down on some historic sites in Old Town Albuquerque. She was easy to understand, interesting to listen to and had great stories. We learned history and details about tales of ghosts in certain sections of town. The walk is easy, the guides friendly and the evening delightful. I'd recommend it to any one - ghost believer or not.
Take a haunted tour of Old Town Albuquerque and learn about the many ghosts who have made the square home. Legends, folklore, ghost stories, and history come to life as you depart on an intriguing excursion through 313 years of haunted history.

We enjoyed our day - especially the first part, visiting the Puye cliff dwellings! We would have enjoyed a longer visit there. Also the demonstration by the weaver was fascinating and lunch was fantastic! Thanks for a great tour!
Cover more ground than you could alone—and without the hassle of public transit—during this full-day tour to the Puye Cliff Dwellings and more. Enjoy access to places you might otherwise have overlooked—such as Ortega’s Weaving—tour the Santuario de Chimayo, and take the opportunity to pick up some handcrafted souvenirs.
Very good experience with this company and it was a fair price. Did the sunrise ride and while it was dark initially, it was great scenery when it got lighter.The crew made it fun and had a delightful sense of dry humor. While in the air, informative discussions about the area took place. When ride was over, there was champagne and pastry's which was a nice touch.
For those who have never done a balloon ride and are skeptical, this ride is for you because its not too wild. I would take anyone on this ride
While it may sound strange to recommend bringing a hat, if you happen to be positioned in the small basket area under the flame which does not have a heat shield , the top of your head really heats up and protection might be nice.
Seeing the sunrise in Albuquerque along the Rio Grande is one of the most beautiful things you can do in the city, and this sunrise hot air balloon ride takes you to one of the best vantage points to see it—the sky. Soar above the city taking in views of the sunrise, and afterward, enjoy Champagne along with light refreshments.

The historic Turquoise Trail, a National Scenic Byway between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, is synonymous with Native American spirituality, Spanish explorers, adventurous mining, and brave pioneers.
The blue-green turquoise, nationally recognized as a precious stone, was first mined by the early Pueblo people as early as 900 A.D. From the 1800s onward Spanish explorers, missionaries and prospectors followed the trail of the native American Indians already here. Today the National Scenic Byway is home to many modern day settlers and host to tens of thousands of visitors a year!
The drive is approximately 50 miles along Highway 14. Enjoy breathtaking scenery while traveling back into history through the mining towns of Golden, Madrid, and Cerrillos. These small towns are now alive with art, crafts, museums and restaurants.

We will visit the museum and see the hundreds of ancient pots returned to this pueblo from museums.

The chapel for the Santo Niño de Atocha is on the grounds, receiving prayers for children. The famous New Mexico Red Chile served at the Rancho de Chimayó restaurant is where we will enjoy lunch. Returning to Santa Fe or Albuquerque, we see the Santa Fe Opera and it's amazing architecture.
My friend and I took the tour and class. Both were very enjoyable and educational. Jacob was extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions professionally and with a bit of humor—family history included. The castle is exceptional as are the exhibits. Making plans to take my husband and view the test of the exhibits. The gift shop and cafe are a very nice addition. Definitely recommend!
A 21st century built two story residence made to look like it was built in the 19th century, full of beautiful antique furniture, display cabinets, chandeliers, antique wood flooring, winding grand staircase, and something made of turquoise everywhere you look.

We follow the Rio Grande River passing by the villages of Los Lunas, the Isleta Pueblo, Belen, and continue through Socorro to our turn off at San Antonio. Each village is part of a rich history of Native American and Spanish Culture we will share as we travel. As we turn east, we see the flood plain, re-created in 1939 to sustain the migrating birds. Our first vision of the refuge is from the Visitor Center overlooking the lakes filled with as many as 100,000 Snow Geese. The white wings cover the lake creating the illusion of snow on the water. At moments, the birds rise as one and fill the air with the sounds of thousands of wings. The adventure begins.
This is a pretty technical dive into the world of chocolate and probably not something for the kids to enjoy. We got a chance to see how the cacao bean gets transformed into the familiar forms we experience all the time There is an emphasis on good practices for farming and sourcing ingredients that may put you off the major brands altogether.
The owner of the shop was our instructor. She was very passionate about her artisanal chocolate. She owns a cacao farm in Belize and knows chocolate from cacao tree to truffles. She detailed chocolate making from harvest to finished product. Attendees had the opportunity to help process from roasted bean to hot chocolate. Our tasting gave us the opportunity to distinguish mass produced grocery store chocolate from her award winning bars.
