  • Sky City/Old Acoma a special place and unique to New Mexico. It has a proud and strong history. The tours are solid and the experience is a must. The Acoma people are amicable and have a great deal of pride in sharing their home. A lot of history and culture to soak up at this place. The drive there is scenic.
  • As someone with a degree in history (non European mind you), I was really looking forward to seeing Acoma and learning more about a people and their history I know little about. The tour was well run, the vendors weren't pushy, and the scenery was amazing. However, I felt like I was being given a lecture the whole time on the evils of the Spanish (explorers, settlers, and missionaries). While I fully acknowledge the horrors most Spanish did (exploitation, enslaving, slaughtering, and maiming to name a few), there was no attempt at a nuanced understanding of the history. It was pretty much all Spaniards are evil and all Acoma were good victims. While I know little about the actual history, I know enough about history to know that this is never how history plays out. There are good Spaniards and bad Acoma in every story. The Acoma are a proud people. And they certainly have reason to still hold a grudge. But I felt that the instant I started asking any questions about their history, was the instant I turned into just another Spanish conquistador and I was cut off with a curt answer. I didn't feel very welcomed, despite the fact that I genuinely wanted to hear more about their people and history. I know this could have just been a bad tour guide we had. I had little chance to talk with anyone other than the girl giving us our tour. So don't let my experience cloud what could be a great one for you. I would still recommend going to anyone. Because the place is just amazing. But I left feeling disappointed.
  • Unforgettable, amazing place of history! Do yourself a huge favor and visit this, my favorite pueblo in all of New Mexico, yes even better than Taos Pueblo!
  • Do you like old histories, indian native American knowledge? Go there.
  • 3rd time there. Worth every second of the side trip. Great people and history
