Ken was extremely knowledgeable and had many interesting stories to share. We learned a lot of history while receiving a thorough overview of Santa Fe. He also passed along recommendations. Our group of four found the tour informative and enjoyable. Suggest taking the tour upon arrival in Santa Fe.

Tomas provided a thorough orientation to historic Santa Fe. We would have loved to had more time to sit and talk about the cultures that formed this charming town. We recommend doing this tour upon arrival as we did. Tomas led on around the core area and the NM State House. By using a guide, you get a much better experience than wondering on your on. We absolutely recommend using Tom.

My party of four women did this walking tour the first day we arrived. We didn’t realize how little information we knew about our 48th state. Our tour guide, Ken, not only shared the history of Santa Fe and New Mexico but also where to get the best margaritas, buy silver jewelry, and a variety of hidden gems around town. Recommend doing this first day so you can take advantage of everything you learned.
