Below: some happy people who took Allan's history tour, we ended this winter trek at the historic La Posada. Today La posada is world class resort, that has a fantastic bar, where you can order a cold or hot one.

BELOW: Part of your history tour covers the conquistadors, their conquests and colonial days. Tour Guide Allan, by the statue of DON DIEGO DEVARGAS --- due to the Charlottesville fiasco, in the future this statue may not be around..... It is a sad thing when controversial events are omitted from the history books... Rather like the novel "1984" or "BRAVE NEW WORLD" where history is rewritten...... History is not always nice or pretty, but it should not be avoided or destroyed, one should learn from it. If one is ignorant of history one makes the same mistakes over and over again, for example..... Apparently the politicos in D.C. learned nothing from the VIETNAM WAR and got the USA into a modern replay called the MIDDLE EAST WARS. Book a tour with Allan 505-986-5002 or 505-231-1336. He is a fantastic historian of renown.
