We chose this 2 hr walking tour to start our visit here. Arlene was great and taught us of the very unique history of Santa Fe, and it’s art and architecture. Would highly recommend.

no need. Just show up. Website has all the details. While there are three starting locations, the St. Francis is where the tour really starts.
