Steve was a very knowledgeable and personable guide on our tour of historic Taos. His detailed descriptions of the people and history of Taos was very entertaining and his care of our safety as we negotiated the streets was exemplary. We would highly recommend this tour.

Four of us were visiting Taos again. We had been there many times, but had never done a tour. We signed up for the Historic Downtown Walking Tour to find out if we had missed anything and discovered we had missed a lot! Anita was our guide. She was engaging and fun, told us interesting facts and gave us information about what happened in the past in Taos -- bringing it all to life with her engaging manner. Highly recommend the tour.

Due to our visit in October, on a rainy day during off season, we ended up with a private tour. We learned about the history of Taos and walked within a few blocks of the town square. It was informative and interesting and have us a general historical understanding of the city.
We felt that it was well worth the reasonable price for this overview of the area.

-Taos Historic Downtown Walking 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 :
