Our guide, Edward shared so much history on Santa Fe history and architecture which made this tour an amazing experience. Ending the tour at a winery allowed us to meet and enjoy the company of our group. I highly recommend this tour! Lots of walking involved and the streets/sidewalks of Santa Fe can be uneven so if you have limitations this tour might be a challenge.

Our tour with Sandy was absolutely amazing! We have been traveling to Santa Fe for 30 years and had never done a tour of the city. This tour provided an immense amount of history and information on the architecture that truly makes this city what it is. We have taken tours all over the world and the tour that Sandy provided was top notch. Highly recommend!

Sandy's architectural tour is such a welcome treat. She is an extremely knowledgeable, insightful and animated storyteller. You will walk away from her tour with so many a-ha! moments and a fun historic download of New Mexico. The tour fee is definitely worth every penny. Plus, Sandy unselfishly offers up her time to answer any questions from participants even after the tour ends. The free wine tasting is also an added bonus. If you could do only one Santa Fe tour book the architectural walking tour. You won't regret it.

We had a wonderful experience with our travel guide because she had great knowledge of the history here in Santa Fe. She shared with us how the community started and how different cultures help one another.I found this to be wonderful knowledge that not everyone would possess. And knowledge of Santa Fe, the indigenous people, and many other interesting aspect which are too many to list.

Sandy led an informative tour that featured architectural examples and details, historical facts, art and sculpture while balancing walking and resting in shady spots. Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious. The group gathered for a wine tasting and the conversation was almost as exciting as the tour. This was a fun way to meet Santa Fe!

There is so much history in Santa Fe, let alone New Mexico. I would say it is critical to have this type of tour for a comprehensive understanding of the area and it’s history. It really was a 10 out of 10 tour. Can’t recommend it highly enough.Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our guide was an author on the subject and it actually ended with a wine tasting.A Surprisingly good wine tasting.

Meaningful tour

The tour was full of great information about history, buildings, Native Americans, and art. The guides were terrific. When I booked the tour, the voucher said that the tour started at the St. Francis Hotel. I tried calling the Viator phone number when the tour started and was put on hold. The guide called me to see why I was late as the tour starts at the Loretto. You need to update this information.

A Different Perspective!
Cari_H

Decided to try something different on our trip to Santa Fe and we were very pleased. This tour took us to a neighborhood we probably would never have thought of visiting. Our guide, Noah, was very knowledgeable about Santa Fe history and was basically a great guide. I would recommend this tour if you are visiting Santa Fe for sure. The tour ended with a tasting at the Gruet Winery Santa Fe Tasting Room - perfect ending with an amazing five tastings. We were happy to purchase a variety of Gruet - some bubbles and some still. Looking forward to visiting Santa Fe in the future.
