I was concerned that my wife wouldn't be up for the walk. It was easy. We only walked a block or so between venues. We started with a food cart on the plaza. The stew was great. Our guide had arranged for other stops and the folks (and food) at those stops were great. We heard colorful stories about Santa Fe and our stops. This was the highlight of our trip. Thanks.
Exceptional tour, that I would highly recommend. The restaurants en route were of a very high standard and, between
them, offered a varied and interesting selection of tastes and drinks. The historic component of the tour gave me a much better understanding of how the city of Santa Fe evolved. The tour guides were entertaining and knowledgeable.
Elizabeth was an excellent tour guide! You could tell she had a geniuine passion for Santa Fe, it's history and it's culture. This was conveyed in the information she provided during the tour. The walk was easy and there were plenty of stopping points. Hard to say what my favorite part of the tour was. We sampled wonderful cheeses at Cheese Monger, excellent tacos at El Callejon, excellent moles at Sazon and wonderful sparkling wines at Gruet. All I can say is the experience was so good, I want to return to Santa Fe!! Thank you Elizabeth!
Perfect way to combine a basic walking tour of the city with a variety of local tastings. The mole sauces at the last stop were so good that we made dinner reservations and had a wonderful meal that evening. The tour guide- who also owns the tour company - cares about the experience and did a great job putting together the tasting venues.
Having the right expectations is the key to any great experience, and mine -- I realize entirely from my own devices -- were too high. I didn't eat lunch before the tour, thinking that we would be feasting from stop to stop. We did not. It was two hours into the tour before we sat down for anything 'substantial' - 2 appetizer size tacos. That followed three bites of cheese at our first stop. We next went to a wine tasting room of a New Mexico winery specializing in sparkling wines I don't care for sparkling much, but our server luckily snuck me a couple still wine pours - which were fantastic! I wish I just bought a bottle and stayed on their patio! Lastly we hit a mole tasting, which was very interesting and enjoyable, just not very filling.
So, at the time I was disappointed with the tour however, if I had just eaten beforehand, been prepared to appreciate the actual historical information I was being given instead of being so focused on getting more food, I think I would've had a very lovely time!
