700 Years Tour

TEXT SIZE

Visit of a Lifetime

2015 Season Dates: April 16 - October 24

The 700 Years tour provides you with an overall historical view of the Ancestral Puebloans architectural, horticultural, cultural, and religious dimensions of their lives in the Southwest. You will be taken through a chronological journey starting with the earliest recorded Pithouse villages (600A.D.) in history to the classic Pueblo era of cliff dwellings dated from the 13th century. Cliff Palace, the largest of cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde National Park, is viewed as one of the top ten places to visit in a lifetime.

Special Advisory:

Between April 16 – May 24, 2015 Cliff Palace will be closed for essential preservation work. During this period of time, the 700 Year Tour will culminate with a tour of Spruce Tree House rather than Cliff Palace. Spruce Tree House, the third largest and best preserved cliff dwelling in the park, allows guests an intimate and close-up view of Ancestral Pueblo life. The guide will provide commentary throughout the site and questions may be asked of the National Park Service Ranger on duty.
