Took the Cliff Palace tour on a semi-raining day, but it was still beautiful! Tour guide was very informative and well worth the $5 the park charges for the tour! I think a visit to the park is incomplete without taking the guided tour. It's...More

This bus tour was good and very interesting. Bus driver was good and nice. Kevin was the guide and he was interesting but a little long winded especially when we were standing in the sun or in one of the buildings. It wasn’t extremely hot,...More

Awesome guided tours allow us a close up look into the sites and live commentary of what had taken place. The tours require us to crawl though a few tights spots, climb ladders and steps. So please ready for that. Yes bring water.

The park is about an hour from Durango. There is so much area in the park to explore, that you will spend the entire day walking, climbing and exploring. It is well worth the money to treat yourself to a guided tour. They pick you...More

Our day with Frank Miller was fantastic! If we would have gone on our own, we would have been bored. Frank imparted a plethora of information in an interesting way. He is a local, and he is a Native American with great insight.

The ladders are sturdy but a couple of them may be quite steep up. There are different trails - most are not that bad. I’m more concerned with the ladders.
