  • Well preserved and maintained site, very well discussed and described by the Park's ranger guides. Probably about as close as we'll get to a real look at the lives of the Pueblo people. By tour only.

  • Wonderful! Impressive. Mesa Verde is a real great park to visit!!!!
  • Was very disappointed that we did not get to go into any of the rooms outlined on the map and info I read about this tour. Cliff House was better in my opinion. 50 people on a tour is too many. It should be 1/2 that amount. Make sure if you go, too see Spruce House. It is self guided and worth the visit. All in all, I would come back again. It is quite an AMAZING place.
