Not worth the price.

Lewis was personal and knowledgeable but the tour was WAY over priced! We could have done it one our own.
Great Mix of History and Art Appreciation
Jon_P, Oct 2022
Wonderful mixture of art and local history. Awoke a newfound appreciation for Southwestern art, and the pivotal place Taos holds in development of contemporary art. Well worth the money and time! One minor disappointment: one of the three museum/studio visits listed required substitution due to illness at the museum. Explanations of the artwork (in many media!) were superb. We looked forward to this particular stop- only to find out about the substitution at the time for the last stop. Unavoidable, but a bit disappointing. Suggest covering any variances from the published itinerary at the start. Wound not hesitate to recommend this tour, the operator Heritage Inspirations, or our guide Lewis!

Meeting the local artists and having direct conversations with them. Lesley was fluent in local history and the local artists we met. She made us want to return to Taos to experience more of this colorful venue
