You have to do this trip, but book it in the morning if you are going to do it in August or it gets kind of hot. It is very interesting and well presented.
Fantastic Day at Mesa Verde

My wife and I took the tour on September 27, 2018. Fantastic tour. Carolyn, tour guide, was not only very knowledgeable, but also very helpful and funny. I recommend this tour, especially if Carolyn is the tour guide.
