  • We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Tonia, has deep knowledge in New Mexican architecture, preservation, and history and brings it together here. We toured some well known neighborhoods as well as others tucked away from typical tour routes. I especially liked the huge magical garden and sculptures hidden behind a wall along the street. Well worthwhile.

  • This was a highlight of my trip! Tonia took us on a magical walking tour of areas most tourists don't get to see and enlightened us about the history of the adobe architecture throughout the centuries. She included a few hidden gems which made the experience even more enchanting. Don't miss it!

  • We highly recommend this excursion - Tonia, our guide, went above and beyond our expectations for our tour. Although we loved everything about our week in Santa Fe, this was one of our top outings. We will be back and using her services again!

  • We took the tour Architectural and Interiors Walking Tour - Behind Adobe Walls with our guide, Tonia. We had a wonderful time, we learned a lot about Santa Fe and the State of New Mexico's History.
    We were introduced to the beautiful neighborhoods. We loved the homes and the architecture in general.
    Tonia is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable about Santa Fe's residence and culture. She showed us the real Santa Fe by taking us to where the locals live their everyday lives. She took us to many places off the beaten path and gave us excellent tips about where to eat, shop and immerse ourselves in Santa Fe's culture.

  • Excellent tour of charming and historic Santa Fe. A very informative and personal visit through the lovely old downtown and neighborhoods. A delightful experience!
