    Historic Taos pueblo. Lots to see and a few shops to buy hand crafted goods from.

    The Pueblo was a fun, historic place to visit. The tour was the best part. The guide was young, but very well informed of his culture. He was able to tell humorous stories or serious stores as was needed, and answered everyone's questions competently.

    While I agree that there are more interesting sites to see in NM, and more interesting pueblos (esp. Acoma), I still liked coming back to Taos, just to see the variety of pottery that is available (though not much is made in Taos).

    However this last time we were greeted with another surprise. I had not been driving more than 5-10 seconds out of the exit, when a Taos cop pulled me over for speeding - 31 in a 20, although the speed limit sign right next to where I stopped said 35. I guess they milk the tourists every way they can - casino, pueblo,...Read More

    Too expensive for what it offers. It gets too hyped about it's age and simple living. Only 40 or so Red Willow people live here out of 2400 in the area. Many of the shops (that's most of what it has) are operated by folks that live outside and source their wares from all over. And prices of all items are really HIGH. So I'd agree it is too commercialized.

    The tour guide was interesting, but she was so sad ... yes I realize native Americans have not been treated well ... however we could have used more education about their history, customs...Read More

I doubt I'll be coming back there after this, unless I happen to be in NM when they're having their big events at the pueblo.

The tour guide was interesting, but she was so sad ... yes I realize native Americans have not been treated well ... however we could have used more education about their history, customs etc. Another reviewer probably got a better guide.

I saw a lot of folks turn away because of the price of the visit, $20 per adult and $6 per camera.
