Taos Highlights Private Tour
From US$81.38
Many Taos treasures are located outside of town, but you can easily see them all in one afternoon on this small-group tour. Starting from the historic Taos Plaza, visit the famously photographic St. Francis de Asis church, peer over the Rio Grande Gorge, and observe Native American traditions at the UNESCO-listed Taos Pueblo. A dedicated guide handles all the driving so you can soak up New Mexico history and high desert views the whole time.
What to Expect
Your private tour of Taos's most famous tourist destinations begins at 1:00pm, picking up your tour guide at the Taos Plaza Gazebo. The Gazebo is the largest structure on the Plaza.

Major sites include the Historic Taos Plaza at the heart of Taos, St. Francis de Asis Roman Catholic Church in Ranchos de Taos and the 'Most Photographed Church in North America", Taos Pueblo living and traditional Native American village on the UNESCO World Heritage list, the stunning and impressive Gorge Bridge towering over the Rio Grande, and the Historic Taos Plaza, where the tour starts and ends.

An average of 3-hours should be allotted for this tour which may vary depending upon traffic conditions and destination lengths of stay.

Note: Taos Pueblo closes to visitors for ceremonies and other traditional occasions, sometimes without notice. In the event the Pueblo is closed, we substitute a stop at a 200 year old Spanish colonial hacienda.

Taos Pueblo

What a great afternoon visiting Taos Pueblo and surrounding areas! Lindsay went above and beyond with her descriptions of native culture. She and Jim, our bus driver, were so accommodating. We would definitely book with them again!

I would think so but you should probably call the company.
