There’s such a wealth of things to do and see in Santa Fe, a thriving tour business has been created. These tours can range from a short walk through the historic center of Santa Fe led by a knowledgeable historian to full day scenic air tours exploring the remote corners of New Mexico and the surrounding states. Some of the more popular excursions include tours of artists studios, wineries and breweries, galleries, restaurants and the Farmer’s Market, photography locations and of course, outdoor adventure destinations and natural wonders of the Southwest.
In addition to numerous walking tours of the historic downtown, there are several operators who offer regularly scheduled tours of the areas adjoining the Plaza in open-air vehicles. If you are interested in an excursion to more outlying areas such as Bandelier National Monument, the nearby pueblos and other unique destinations, there are purveyors that can assist you with such a tour. You can customize your tour and the operator will provide you with a fun, friendly and knowledgeable guide that will surely enhance your New Mexico experience.
We have provided a list of some of the many tour operators and identified their area of specialty. We have also provided descriptions of five self-guided day trips branching out from Santa Fe to the northwest, northeast, east, south and west.
