Certified Tour Guides dispel the rumors and myths with authentic information about the “Duke City” as they escort you on an exciting adventure through time. Embark on a 75-minute to 2-hour leisurely walking tour which takes you through the streets and alleys of one of the oldest towns in North America. Life has flourished in the Land of Enchantment for thousands of years. Many early American Indian tribes inhabited nearby pueblos and the Spanish Conquistadors explored the Southwest in search of the mythical Seven Cities of Gold. Old Town was founded in 1706, over seventy years before the United States became a country, and has thrived on the banks of the Rio Grande for centuries. People have lived around the historic Old Town Plaza for hundreds of years.
