History not legends and lore
Thomas_C

Barbara was very knowledgeable about the history of Albuquerque and we learnt a lot, but the legends and lore part of the tour title were notable by their absence. We did really enjoy the Billy the Kid anecdote and would have liked more of those stories.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thanks for joining us, Thomas, & for posting your review. We're glad that you learned a lot & that you found our Guide very knowledgeable. The Public History Tour you attended was jam packed with 316 years of History, and over 13 historic locations, in just 90-minutes. We're thrilled that you enjoyed the Billy the Kid Story but are sorry that you didn't get as many stories as you wanted. We take your satisfaction & feedback quite seriously! Our Public Tours are designed to give Guests a thorough & accurate overview of the Founding of Old Town Albuquerque. Perhaps a Private Tour, that is able to focus on your specific areas of interest, would be a better fit? Private Tours may be customized to fit YOUR interests. More time could be spent just telling you the amazing stories, or whatever you want to focus on: Art - Architecture - Shopping - Culinary and more. We hope your visit to Old Town was Enchanting!
