If you have a tight schedule or are seeking a quick and educational yet entertaining foundation of Taos, this is your tour. Beginning at the Taos Plaza Gazebo at 11:00am, we cover the pivotal historical points that make this place unique, including the red light district of Taos’s past, what it was like to be in the Taos Plaza 200 years ago, the deadly haircut of New Mexico’s first American Governor, the red light district of Taos's past, the ghost of Long John Dunn, a priest’s 51 children, the discovery of white gold, the arrival of the Spanish, and the most important Native American in history.

The tour is approximately 50-minutes long but sometimes goes over depending on walking speeds and questions, and we’re okay with discussion! Walking is less than 1/2 mile through the downtown area, all within one block of the Plaza. Surfaces can be uneven but they are wheelchair friendly. Dogs are always welcome and there are plenty of dog bowls with water along the way.

We do require a reservation in advance but can usually accommodate last minute bookings. Groups rates and custom times available. Just contact us!
