The Santa Fe tour with Terry was PHENOMENAL- our favorite part of Santa Fe. Terry was incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, and thoughtful. He receives my highest recommendation.

Hike with a Master Naturalist on May 9, 2023

Thank you Terry! We agree- we all had a fantastic time on the hike. We enjoyed the  beautiful surroundings and hearing the back story of how we came to be on that huge ridge and all of the geological changes that lead it.

I appreciate how detailed you are and we didn’t even mind your test questions!

All the best to you  and the colleagues at Santa Fe Footprints!

We will definitely look you up when we return to the area. Take care!

Best regards,

The tour with Terry was perfect for  our group of 5 women who  were in Santa Fe for the first time.  He was very informative and willing to answer all our questions.   The sites and stories were very interesting. 

Thank you Terry.


Thank you Victoria for a great tour. Many of the students wrote about the information you shared in their journal entries that evening. We appreciate you.
Attached are some of the photos we took!

Victoria made the  arts district of Canyon Road come alive. Thank you for your deep knowledge of history and your enthusiasm. It was an experience where everyone in our group said, “Where did the time go?” Absolutely wonderful. And what  a nice, kind person!

Let me preface this by saying both my husband and I have been to Santa Fe many times.
For a change, I decided last minute to do a walking history tour. Santa Fe Footprints and Bob Ackenhausen were fantastic! Bob is super responsive to emails and texts. We met at Henry and the Fish. Bob was there to greet us -he’s relaxed and puts you at ease. The next couple of hours were delightful. We learned  so much about American, Spanish and Mexican history. There was not a lot of walking however we learned so many interesting tidbits about Santa Fe. Bob was extremely knowledgeable and totally recommend him. Santa Fe is a wonderful town. Thanks to Bob we’ll have wonderful memories!!

We loved our tour with Victoria! She was super knowledgeable and friendly! We learned a lot about the history of Santa Fe and got to explore quite a few historic sites. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Santa Fe (or a local who wants to learn more about their home town)! Loved it!

We had a great time on our tour and would highly recommend Santa Fe Footprints.  Our guide, Terry, was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a great storyteller.  Terry was happy to share information and recommendations on other places to visit in the area.

Our yoga group is visiting Santa Fe this week, I did some research and chose Santa Fe Footprints for our walking tour of Santa Fe. Bob was wonderful to work with in the planning for this group activity, he answered emails quickly and was a pleasure to work with. The tour lasted about two hours and was full of information about the history, architecture and folklore of the area. Because our group was quite large, Bob divided us into two groups, we all had a chance to ask questions and get close enough to him to hear what he was saying, something that doesn’t always happen on walking tours!
I highly recommend Santa Fe footprints for your introduction to Santa Fe.
