Everything in Mesa Verde National Park is amazing. The information is available to help you understand what you should know about the people that built this wonderful place. Simply amazing.
This fun, but somewhat arduous tour, was one of the highlights of our 17-day trip to southwest Colorado. Before the one-hour tour began, our guide said that anyone claustrophobic or afraid of heights might want to skip this “Indiana Jones tour” since it involved climbing a 32-foot ladder, crawling through an 18-inch wide and 12-foot long tunnel, walking through tight... 更多
Four us took this tour and really enjoyed seeing it. The history and physical building were amazing. I will say for some it may be too physical as the tour requires visitors to descend a 100 foot staircase into the canyon; climb a 32 foot ladder; crawl through a 24 inch by 18 inches wide tunnel; and clamber up an... 更多
Did it. I just knew I would love this national park and I did. The Park Ranger gave a presentation that took me back. With her help, I imagined living in the location. What an incredible experience. You might be surprised by the various colors of the stone, the time it took to build, the challenges of farming, the uses... 更多
Of all the sites where you can actually go into this is the best in my opinion. This is a guided tour for which you pay a very reasonable price. You get to get up close and personal with this extremely impressive early Native Pueblo dwelling. Words can't describe how cool this place is.
The Cliff Palace was closed to tours during our stay for restorations , so we explored the Balcony House...what a jewel of Mesa Verde! We followed the knowledgeable Ranger through tunnels, up ladders and around phenomenal kivas. What a memorable experience! If you get the chance...take the tour! Reserve early. Cost is nominal.
This is a ranger led tour and you have to get tickets ahead of time. Tickets are sold up to two days before, but only in person when you are at the park. It's well worth it. You actually get down to the dwelling and walk in places where people lived 1000 years ago. It's amazing how they built the... 更多
Our family recently visited Mesa Verde National Park in early October and was fortunate enough to be able to tour Balcony House. We got our tickets the day we entered the park and there were many different time slots to choose from as there were frequent tours offered. The visitor center warns of how strenuous the tour can be and... 更多
The site was awesome as was our ranger guide. The tour included people from about age 4 to 75 of different fitness levels. We ALL completed the tour. The 11 yr old grandson with us was a little nervous about the ladders but did fine. It wasn't as strenuous as I thought. A "SAMPLE" ladder and tunnel are available just... 更多
