My family and I enjoyed our hike of the Arroyo Hondo with Terry. He was very knowledgeable and we learned so much about the water systems, rock formations, cactus and the other vegetation along the trail. My father, who is almost 80 years old, did the hike with no problem. My sisters and I were trying to keep up with him.lol He enjoyed the hike and talking to Terry. We would like to thank Terry for such a wonderful experience and cherish this memory.
Ana: Thank you for the very kind review. I have passed your review on to Terry. He is a great hiking guide with vast experience with New Mexico's plants, geology and water issues. I always learn something new each time we hike in this Land of Enchantment.
Bob -Owner/Guide Santa Fe Footprints 6/7/19
My family and I booked a walking tour and we absolutely loved it!! Bob was a great guide, from start to finish he was polite, informative and kept even our 11 yr olds attention! I definitely recommend booking a tour if you want more insight on the history and Santa Fe and some of the buildings/sites here!!
May 31 at 4:40 PM · Bob was extremely patient with our group of 13. We were running late and he was very gracious once we finally arrived. I learned SO much about the history of Santa Fe and will treasure this experience for years to come!

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 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!
Owner Reply -- 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 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,
P.S. Below is a link to my website. I also have a podcast and have done a number of interviews with authors and various experts.

If you ever want to come on the show and talk about Santa Fe (or other points of interest), just let me know.
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 just recommended this tour to friends who are traveling from Philly in October. In May we spent the morning with Bob and loved every minute. Very entertaining and interesting. We learned about the history of the area as well as the best places to buy authentic Native American jewelry and art . . . how it became an artists colony and popular with eastern tourists. We ended at a darling gazebo restaurant for lunch. Totally worth your time!
I neglected to post in May when Bob escorted us around Santa Fe. What a wonderful morning! We learned so much about the settlement of Santa Fe–in a very entertaining and interesting manner. I am posting now because I just recommended your tour to friends from Philly who will be in Santa Fe in October. Thanks again Bob
