A Santa Fe Must!

Victor was one of the most entertaining and informed guides I have ever had. The route was carefully crafted to eliminate a stressful amount of walking while including notable buildings and historical sites. Victor’s love for Santa Fe is obvious and results in an outpouring of wonderful stories that are informative, sometimes bizarre or bawdy, but always worth hearing. A definite five star experience.

Victor brings the city to life. Anyone can read about dates and events, but Victor tells the stories of the many people who have come to Santa Fe from all different locations and walks of life, and the impact they have had, and that the city has had on them. You won’t get this kind of detail in a history book or really from any other guide. Victor is just unique and local and amazing. Loved it!

Three hours with Victor fly by since he is able to provide thorough, academic history and culture of Santa Fe with articulate, descriptive prose, intertwined with guffaw humor. He stops at appropriate sites, tells intriguing stories, and makes you fall In love with the city. We especially liked his recommendation for the Gruet winery, which we loved. Victor is a true gem. Dont miss his tour.

Victor is a Santa Fe treasure. What a wonderful 3 hours complete w detailed history presented in an engaging/fun manner. He’s got a great personality and you can sense he loves displaying the city he loves to us. Don’t miss this. And kudos for your starting at 9 am, streets are quiet before the tourists take over around noon.

Victor’s Historical Fiction: A Wintry Day in Santa Fe

, Jan 2022
Rain or shine, Victor was there telling his lifetime of stories about his beloved city of Santa Fe. We walked for three hours in the snow and enjoyed what became a private tour. We especially loved seeing the Loretto Chapel with its mysterious beautiful stairway. The next day when we went down into Santa Fe we felt like we knew the city so much better.
