Capture the Spirit of the Southwest
Santa Fe truly captures the spirit and style of the Southwest with the gently curving lines of its buildings and architectural uniformity.
The oldest capital city in the United States, Santa Fe wows visitors with endless beauty. A stroll through the streets around the historic plaza, the heart of Santa Fe, will lead you to shops and galleries, restaurants, museums, and historic churches. At the Palace of the Governors, stop to admire the artwork and jewelry created by the Native Americans sitting under the portal. Walk up picturesque Canyon Road, Santa Fe's most famous street with over eighty galleries, restaurants and shops.
Santa Fe is an art lover's and History Buffs' paradise. From museums to galleries you will be awestruck!

Mae was our tour guide to Santa Fe. From the minute she picked us up until she dropped us off at our hotel she was a wealth of information. Pueblos, volcanoes, museums, Native American cultures and points of interest along the route, she was an excellent wealth of knowledge . Mae took a detour on our return journey to Albuquerque allowing my sister (from England) to cross the Rio Grande river, a dream she has harbored since the old cowboy movie days. Highly recommend her as a guide.
