Your Guide to Santa Fe Tours

Santa Fe, New Mexico is one of the oldest and most unique places to visit in the country. In fact, it’s nicknamed “The City Different” for a reason. The best way to truly get acquainted (or reacquainted) with Santa Fe is to take a tour. There are plenty of options for everyone, whether you’re an art or architecture lover, a hiking or biking enthusiast, a history buff or foodie. Here’s your guide to Santa Fe tours. You’ll enjoy every minute!

History & Heritage Tours

One of the best ways to truly get to know and understand what makes a city, is to learn about its history and heritage. Founded in 1610 as a province of New Spain, Santa Fe has a long and rich history replete with art and culture thanks to the influence of Spanish explorers and Native American cultures. The Pueblo people are the oldest known and most prevalent around Santa Fe, dating back 1500 years and leaving an impressive mark on this city. Santa Fe’s art, jewelry, architecture, food, and culture have all been shaped by this vibrant heritage. Check out these local tour companies who offer tours by foot, tram, and eBikes.

Art Tours

Paintings, pottery and music, oh my! Santa Fe is an art lover’s paradise. Hundreds of years Native American and Spanish influence combined with an influx of 20th Century “Anglo” artists have shaped Santa Fe’s art scene into what it is today. From Native American pottery, weaving, and jewelry to modern day paintings and photography, you can never experience it all in one trip. That’s why visitors return again and again, and why many end up making Santa Fe their home. Come see for yourself with these impressive art tours.

Hiking & Biking Tours

Combine your love for hiking or biking with a lesson in Santa Fe’s culture. These local tour guides will lead you to impossibly beautiful places where you’ll feast your eyes on stunning landscapes and experience the Santa Fe of long ago.

Food Tours

If you want to immerse yourself in a particular culture, then be sure to taste its food. Traditional cuisine is often passed down from generation to generation, and tells us a lot about a culture’s past. Here in Santa Fe, the Puebloan diet of corn, beans, gourds and chiles and the Anasazi diet of seeds and nuts, like acorns and pine nuts, melded with the Hispanic culture’s use of meats and cheeses (think New Mexico enchilada) and the European influences of more modern times to create a savory and satisfying hybrid cuisine. Come taste the history with one of these Santa Fe food tours.

Scenic Tours

The natural elements surrounding a city certainly shape it in many different ways. Santa Fe has long been shaped by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the most important mountain range in New Mexico. Sangre de Cristo is Spanish for “Blood of Christ,” likely because of the natural phenomenon called alpenglow that often covers the mountain peaks with lustrous shades of red and pink just before dusk. This breathtaking mountain range is one of the most beautiful and iconic places on earth. Santa Fe is fortunate to be located in the foothills of these mountains, and so a guided tour is a perfect way to see them.
