My husband and I enjoyed Allan’s tour our first day in Santa Fe. We learned so much about the history of Santa Fe, which gave us terrific insight for the rest of our stay.
Allan was personable, entertaining, and knowledgeable. He answered our many questions and adjusted the tour to our interests.
I recommend starting your Santa Fe visit with Allan’s walking tour.
