Fun afternoon with Misty! - This was an amazing way to learn about the history of Albuquerque while we were in town during our road trip. We learned so much about the town from the beginning up until modern day. We loved seeing the old historic buildings and connecting with the town with such rich history. Misty was THE BEST tour guide and was super knowledgeable and fun to spend an afternoon with. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn more about this place!

Tour and guide terrific - Yesterday we had a terrific walking tour of Albuquerque’s historic district with Edie. She was informative and entertaining. She was considerate and would find places in the shade for us to sit as she described different areas. And one of the most interesting aspects is that she had a book of vintage photos to show us what each building or street look like a century ago. We wish we could’ve stayed in town to go with her another time on a ghost tour. Great experience.

Good Intro to Old Town Albuquerque - This tour provides a great 60-minute overview of Albuquerque’s Old Town. We opted for the private tour so that we had the option to ask a wide range of questions. Our guide Barbara was very knowledgeable - and we loved her collection of Old Town images through the years.

Girls Weekend - Barbara was incredibly knowledgable and our party learned a lot on her tour. We had two natives and one transplant. She accommodated the handicapped walker and found several places to sit which everyone appreciated. I would take this tour with Barbara again and bring more family next time! She answered our questions and we all felt it was an excellent tour all around! The photo at the end she took of our group was perfect!
