Discussion with others/learning about art!
, Apr 2022
This was an intimate view into some of the art and galleries on Canyon Road. Lots of variety and met some gallery owners as well. Guide was very knowledgable and personable. We were a small group which I enjoyed. We focused on some specific historic events and art works, so I came away with clear memories rather than a "general overview" experience that kind of washes away.

Erica, thanks so much for your review! We really appreciate it. I love reading this so much: clear memories rather than a general overview that kind of washes away. That's definitely the kind of experience we hope to provide. Thank you!
Interactive museum tour… A must

Elaine was terrific. She was knowledgeable, kind, and professional. Her personality was perfect. The gallery she selected were exquisite. We loved the variety!

Marissa, thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour and the galleries. I had so much fun on tour with you! I hope you'll come back and see us again soon.
definitely worthwhile!

2 hours cannot do justice to the beautiful & unique Canyon Road arts district in Santa Fe. Our guide Elaine took our group of 6 to a few galleries, each different. Her knowledge of various media was excellent and she was approachable and laid back. I think this would be a great 4-hour tour with lunch break in the middle. Definitely recommend. Only reason I didn't give 5 rating is that it was too short.

Hi Julianne! Thanks so much for your review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour – and that you liked it so much you found it too short! I agree that it's possible to spend much longer on Canyon Road. This particular tour is designed to be a shorter, introductory experience, but we also offer customized, private tours for those who would like a longer tour or a full-day (or multi-day) experience. These tours can be booked through Santa Fe Art Tours directly. Thank you again!
Highly Recommended

So glad we did this tour. We visited galleries and private collections. We saw a variety of artist, style, and various mediums of art. The tour gave a sampling of what Canyon Rd. had to offer. Some of the places we went I don't think we would have stopped on our own to see, but so glad we did. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Canyon Rd as well as art history. At the end of the tour we were able to continue to explore on our own.
Perfect way to visit Canyon Road

Our guide was knowledgeable, fun, insightful....simply the best. We learned so much, saw the highlights and left with a greater understanding of the history and culture of the Santa Fe art world.

An informative, enjoyable arts tour
, Sep 2018
Our party of 4 had a great time with 5 other people on a leisurely two-hour walk up Canyon Road. What made the tour so special was the efforts of the owner/guide, Elaine. She has created a unique experience for her guests, using her academic and experiential training in arts history and museum studies that made the tour interactive, engaging, and informative without it being boring or unengaging. The price pp is reasonable and well worth the education. After the tour, we wandered back down Canyon Road and bought a beautiful piece of artwork.
