Private tour guide Miguel

Miguel D.

Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States

When I was a young man my father would take my brother and I on trips from Albuquerque NM to Colorado to visit relatives.

Along the way dad would stop at every road-side historic sign and take pictures of us standing in front of the markers. I was always intrigued with the photography my father did on his Kodak Brownie camera as well as with the historical information listed at each stop. Apparently I was influenced by both because as an adult I became a Historian and Park Ranger for the National Park Service and also an award winning Professional Photographer. These days, I have a great love and passion for taking people to different sites sharing historical information and great appreciation for the scenery, landscapes and beauty throughout our fine State of New Mexico. Please join me on a hike, walk, photo excursion, Steam Engine train ride, photography outing or to plan a half day, full day, or custom multi-day tour just for you and your group.
