Private Tour of Mesa Verde With an Archeologist-Trained Guide

Come take a look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made the area known as Mesa Verde National Park their home, for over 700 years, from 600 C.E. to 1300 C.E.!

Experience some of the most notable and best-preserved cliff-dwelling and archaeological sites in the United States. Mesa Verde encompasses over 80 square miles and protects over 5,000 archaeological sites, including the famous Cliff Palace and nearly 600 cliff dwellings, some of which are more than 800 years old.

When you book this tour you’ll sit back and relax while our experienced, knowledgeable archaeologist-trained guide takes you around the National Park. With your guide’s knowledge, you will be able to ask questions, read literature, and listen to your own customized tour of the park.

You get to save gas, time, and entrance fees with our guided tours. All of our vehicles are comfortable with air conditioning for those hot summer months and heated for the winter months.

With plenty of mesa-top ruins to visit, panoramic views of the large cliff dwellings, and open hiking trails, there is a lot to see and experience at Mesa Verde National Park! Come join us on one of our private tours that will immerse you into a time full of mystery and intrigue in a place of breathtaking beauty.

Our customizable private tour will allow you to determine your own priorities and depending on your preferences, you can spend more time at the scenic overlooks for spectacular views and photo ops. Just let us know what you prefer from some of the choices below.

  • Entertainment/Sightseeing/Chauffeur service
  • Recreation – including walking, hiking trails, and exploring
  • Taking photographs
  • An educational experience
  • Combination of all of the above

Why a Private Tour? 

For starters, we are the only company offering tours with archaeologist-trained guides. Preparation for your guided tour begins long before the tour starts. There are a lot of behind-the-scenes initiatives and activities carried out by the tour guide. Your guide is an archaeologist-trained subject matter expert requiring considerable training, education, research, and content knowledge on multiple topics with the ability to effectively communicate it to the guest. Along with intimate knowledge of the sites and resources, your guide possesses the communication skills, public speaking, and storytelling abilities to provide an enjoyable and memorable experience.
