Excellent tour. Guide is very knowledgeable with a nice, friendly demeanor. We’ve lived in New Mexico for a long time but learned a lot about the history of the state and how things fit together from Bob. Thanks for the nice tour.

It was a pleasure meeting all of you. I do learn something on all of the tours and having guest from New Mexico who have taught on the Rez was exceptional. Thank you.

Bob was an excellent, friendly, and helpful tour guide. He led us through Old Town Santa Fe with comprehensive history. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

Bob was amazing. I have been on several walking tours and Bob was amazing!! He kept things moving and had great stories to tell. He approached the tour as one big story. I was not bored once and had a great time! Thanks!


Bob Ackenhausen Jordan, thanks so much for the kind words 🤠. Enjoy your time in this amazing city, Santa Fe !!

Had a wonderful walking tour of Sante Fe with Bob. He gave a wealth of historical information that framed the “soul” of Sante Fe for us.
He was able to answer all of our questions – spoke to the whole group, not just to individuals. Was very helpful in suggesting places to eat, etc.
Really helped us to start our trip off right!

I’ve just returned from a fabulous trip to Santa Fe. It was my first visit to this magical place and I thought I’d get acclimated by taking a walking tour.  Little did I know that this would prove one of the highlights of the trip.

Bob made the experience one I will never forget. His knowledge, enthusiasm, humor and warm welcome made the tour both informative and fun.  I’m ready to pack my bags, return again and take another journey through time with Bob leading the way. This guy deserves far more than 5 stars. Take a tour with Bob and you’ll see what I mean!

I am a big fan who was lucky enough to take your tour. If you recall, there were only two of us but you were just as gracious, informative and fun as if you were speaking before a crowd of enthusiastic travelers. Your tour was a real highlight for me and I wrote that on your Facebook page.
You may remember that I’d mentioned the Peralta family had a huge presence in the Bay Area. Here are a couple of links that might interest you. If you do find a relation with the Santa Fe Peraltas, I’d love to hear about it.
Here’s wishing you a great Memorial Day weekend and kick off to your summer. I’m thinking you’ll be giving lots of other lucky folks the incredible experience you gave me!
With best wishes,
