day trip to Taos

I'll be in Santa Fe for 3 days next weekend. As of now I am not planning to go to Taos. But - I'd like a back up plan if I change my mind and want to do it last minute. Can you recommend a tour company that does a nice day tour, preferably with a minivan? I don't relish the idea of a big bus for this.

I do not know of any "Taos Tours" from Santa Fe...or Albuquerque for that matter. If there are any, I would like to be enlightened myself.

We drove from SF to Taos for the day and had lunch at Doc Martin's. We toured Los Alamos on the way back. You could rent a car and have a nice trip. Good luck.

Doc Martin's @ 125 Cam Del Paseo Pueblo Norte, Taos, NM 575 - 758 - 1977.

We took a tour to Taos from Santa Fe with Great Southwest Tours. They picked us up at our hotel in a minivan at 8:30am and brought up back at 5:30 pm. Great tour guide - Coco. She took us to Chimayo, Taos Pueblo, Rio Grande Gorge, a textile weaver and several scenic stops. Highly recommend them. Why drive when you can take a tour, I say.

Enchanted Journeys de Santa Fe does tours to Taos, Chimayo, Abiquiu and elsewhere from SFe. Fully licensed, private vehicle tour so you go wherever you want.


If you prefer group tours, do check Great Southwest Adventures.
