    Our tour guide was excellent and the Canyon Road Galleries were welcoming. We took the tour in the morning and went back in the afternoon to explore more. The tour is part art appreciation and part specific Canyon Road history. Unlike other art scenes, gallery owners are

    The Santa Fe art scene is #2 to NYC, so we felt a little overwhelmed at just dropping into the Canyon Road galleries. No worries, people are very friendly!, but Elaine seems to know everyone and everything happening there and gave us a great introduction to a few special places.

    Thanks so much for your review! I completely agree – although our art scene is very friendly and warm, it can still be daunting to gallery hop, especially when there's so much to see. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the group dynamic and the conversations we had in the galleries. Thanks again!

    Very knowledgeable tour leader Elaine Ritchel. We visited galleries and found out about many different art forms. She guided us to areas we probably wouldn't have found on our own. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

    Whether you love art or have no clue, this is the perfect tour. Interesting, easy to understand, exposure to a variety of art styles - all in visits to 5 curated galleries. Canyon Road can be very intimidating; Elaine, who ran our tour, made it very approachable.
