Certified Tour Guides dispel the rumors and myths with authentic information about the “Duke City” as they escort you on an exciting adventure through time. Embark on a 75-minute to 2-hour leisurely walking tour which takes you through the streets and alleys of one of the oldest towns in North America.

Life has flourished in the Land of Enchantment for thousands of years. Many early American Indian tribes inhabited nearby pueblos and the Spanish Conquistadors explored the Southwest in search of the mythical Seven Cities of Gold.

Old Town was founded in 1706, over seventy years before the United States became a country, and has thrived on the banks of the Rio Grande for centuries.


Uncover Old Town's unusual and well-hidden architectural details. Reminisce about the early southwest pioneers’ daily struggle to survive.

Relive the sights and sounds of the Civil War as Confederate soldiers entered the Plaza. Imagine early merchants as they traveled the Santa Fe Trail for trade.

Tours include historical photos, interesting trivia and fun facts of Albuquerque and the state of New Mexico!

Our History Tours are perfect for both locals and visitors to the Land of Enchantment. Step back in time and experience our History, Legends & Lore.
