1 ALBUQUERQUE, NM

We pick you up this morning and drive to Charlotte, NC to catch our flight to Albuquerque, founded in 1706, where we will check into our hotel for a two night stay in this “Duke City.” Tonight we enjoy a Welcome Dinner in the area.

2 BALLOON FIESTA / OLD TOWN

Today experience one of the most photographed events in the world, the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Early this morning view over 100 colorful balloons from around the world at Dawn Patrol followed by the Mass Ascension. The balloons make the sky become a pallet of multicolored orbs dancing in the cool morning light. Later stop in Old Town to stroll the historic adobe buildings that house over 150 shops, galleries and restaurants. We also see the icon of Old Town, the San Felipe de Neri Church. This evening we return to the Balloon Fiesta to witness the Balloon Glow, where just before dusk burners from hundreds of balloons light up the evening sky.

3 INDIAN PUEBLO CULTURAL CENTER / SANTA FE

This morning visit the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center depicting the history and culture of New Mexico’s 19 Native American pueblos. Then head north from Albuquerque to visit the Los Alamos Bradbury Science Museum to learn about the Manhattan Project and the creation of world’s first atomic bomb. Later we arrive in Santa Fe for a three night stay. Santa Fe is renowned for its Pueblo-style architecture and as a creative arts hotbed.

4 TAOS

We depart this morning and travel north via the “High Road to Taos” passing through ancient villages founded in the 1700’s. We stop in the Spanish village of Chimayo to visit El Santaurio, revered by pilgrims for the healing power of dirt found inside the chapel. Once we arrive in Taos, the historic home of the Pueblo Indians, we enjoy a brief Taos City Tour and learn about this fascinating city rich in culture and scenery. Atop a plateau between the Rio Grande and the San-gre de Cristo Mountains, Taos has lured artists and writers since the 19th century. Enjoy lunch on your own and shopping in the Taos Plaza. Later enjoy a tour of the Taos Pueblo, one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in North America before we return to Santa Fe.

We enjoy a wonderful Santa Fe City Tour including details about the history, culture, and unique architecture of this interesting city. We see the Plaza, Loretto Chapel, and the Palace of the Governor’s, a Santa Fe landmark built in 1610.
