Чем вы займетесь

Our exploration of the Old Town Plaza will begin with coffee, tea and biscochitos on the balcony of our home, looking out over the original town square and historic San Felipe Church. We will overlook history as well, and gaze back from the Tewa people on who’s land Old Town was built, to life on the plaza during the Spanish, Mexican and American colonial periods.

Next we will undertake a walking tour of the plaza with a focus on the old adobe architecture and the stories associated with the buildings and smaller placitas that make up Old Town, using historical photos and visuals to support the information. This stroll will include secrets and lore unknown even to most Albuquerque residents, interaction with some of the "old timers" that live and work here, and pointers what to see and do and where to eat, tailored to the needs and interests of each group. Old Town is a valuable community resource and there are frequent impromptu happenings- quinceaneras, vintage car parades, etc. The tour will embrace these spontaneous events as they occur making the visit to Old Town even more vibrant and personal.

Finally, at the end of the tour experience, participants have the option of being served lunch at La Placita Dining Room in the Manuel Armijo House, one of the oldest structures on the Plaza, built in 1706.

I am an educator and a history buff with deep love and respect for Albuquerque's Old Town Plaza where I make my home. Gathering information from traditional sources and from the stories and personal narratives of many of the people whose families have called Old Town home for centuries, I endeavor to guide guests on a trip through time, from the present to the past and back again.

Covid protocols respected and in place.

This tour was one of the highlights of our time in Albuquerque! Greg is a very gifted storyteller and historian!! He was wonderful — the stories and pictures he shared with us brought the history of Albuquerque alive. He even reached out to us before the tour and ended up giving us lots of ideas for how we could spend the rest of time we were in Albuquerque! He and his tour are exceptional! We would highly recommend!!!

This tour was excellent, I personally loved the way he told the whole history of the city, remembering and honoring the native people that first lived in the area. I really learned a lot about the city and saw it differently after the tour.

Our experience with Greg was the highlight of our stay in Albuquerque. We started with some delicious pinion coffee on his balcony while he explained the history of the area which even kept our 13 year old interested. We, then, took a walk around Old Town and learned more history, viewed photos of then with the contrast of now, and pieced together the stories we learned on his patio with visuals. Greg is just a great guy and a wealth of knowledge - He is someone we are looking forward to keeping in touch with as our adventure continues and into the future.

Sign up for this experience! Greg is knowledgeable and respectful of this wonderful place and the people who have shaped it over many years. He’s a great storyteller who can share the profound with a light touch and sense of humor. He paid careful attention to who we are what we seemed to be interested in and made our experience relaxing and fun. We started with local tea and cookies, sitting on his shaded balcony overlooking Old Town square and it just got better from there. Strolling through town my husband and felt like we were hanging out with a friend. Lots of great tips around area travel and food, too. Thanks, Greg, for setting such a wonderful tone, tenor and context for our exploration of this rich place.
