Four friends went on this tour with "Steve." Another lady was with us in the van. Steve was prepared, experienced and knowledgeable. Loved going to the Taos Pueblo. His advice about one of the craftsman at the pueblo was helpful to me. Bought the cuff bracelet at a reasonable price that I wanted for my trip memory. We had lots of questions which he could answer. That area of the country is very fascinating for an east coaster.

My husband and I were the only two people on this Small Group Driving Tour!!! Therefore we were able to dictate the pace of the tour. We weren't interested in shopping time, so our guide moved along so as to not waste our time. He even took us to a place that was not on the tour that he thought we might be interested in seeing. He was very knowledgeable of the whole area. He even gave us some winery recommendations. I would definitely recommend this tour if you only have half of day to spend in Taos.

Guild Mark was very personal and would recommend that you ask for him as he really understood and knew the history of Taos. Seeing Rio Grand Gorge was the highlight of the tour.

We really enjoyed this tour. We had considered taking the High Road to Taos tour, but as it was 190 per person, we decided against that one, but in the process found this tour. It was much more reasonably priced, and we felt it was very informative. Our guide was absolutely chock-full of excellent information. He really knew his history of the area and all the different people who had settled there over the centuries. We particularly enjoyed the Taos Pueblo as well as the architectural background with regard to adobe buildings.

Ended up being a personal tour with just my husband and me. Lisa tour guide was knowledgeable and had terrific stories. Had a real downpour on the way to the Gorge, but we just pulled over and waited it out! Got to the Gorge with great views and no rain. Super tour. Highly recommend.

We booked on-line for 2 people. When we got there it was only us. We had a fabulous private tour of Taos. We went inside the St Francis church. We visited a pueblo and had a guided tour of it. Our driver, tour guide, was fabulous and explained all about Taos and answered questions. It was definitely more than 3 hours. We had not had lunch when we got there so they recommended the best place in town and gave us extra time before starting the tour. We ate in the tree shaded courtyard at Lambert's which was a 5 minute walk from the tour shop in town. Lunch was delicious as was the fresh made iced tea. We shared a hamburger and it was inexpensive. After the tour we walked around town, shopped and had delicious home-made chocolate ice cream in the chocolate shop in town. We could not have done this on our own and we did have a car as we were staying in Santa Fe.

-Taos Highlights Small-Group Driving Tour
Our guide was Lisa. She is amazing very knowledgeable about the history of Taos, and New Mexico in general. We enjoyed learning about Taos. We also enjoyed visiting the St Francis de Asis Church, where we even got to see Aztec dancers celebrating a special ceremony. We had a great time and we loved all the places where she took us, especially, The Rio Grande Gorge, for which we will always have a special place in our hearts because WE GOT ENGAGED THERE!
We definitely recommend Turquoise Tours. If you want a great tour with knowledgeable guides at a great price, definitely book this tour.
Thank you Turquoise Tours! This was an unforgettable trip and we will definitely be back :
