Settle into Santa Fe

The perfect way to orient yourself in Santa Fe, our Discover Downtown walking tour is a fun and relaxed walk through Santa Fe's historic plaza area. 

During the tour, we'll focus on arts and culture and cover some spots to eat, drink, and shop. In true Santa Fe style, the tour pace is slow and leisurely and includes a stop at C.G. Higgins Confections, where we'll enjoy a hand-made truffle and a cup of coffee while we talk about what to see and do in Santa Fe according to your personal interests.

We'll come equipped with maps and a selected list of Santa Fe highlights for you, so after the tour, you'll be ready to keep exploring. This tour is super useful for those of you coming to Santa Fe to plan a wedding or other event – you'll end the tour feeling comfortable in Santa Fe and bursting with ideas and suggestions for your guests! 

Please note that this isn't a standard sightseeing or Santa Fe history tour. While you will get a bit of history where relevant, our focus is art and culture. Stops may include Allan Houser Gallery, Peyton Wright, Owings Gallery, Shiprock, David Rothermel Contemporary, the historic Santa Fe Plaza, and Palace of the Governors. Please note that due to gallery or museum closures, our route may vary.
