Private Chapin Mesa Tour 

Guests will experience a chronological journey through the 700-year history of the Ancestral Pueblos. NAI Certified Interpretive Guides tailor the experience to suit your needs whether you are a family with children, or have ADA needs, yet still want the full personal adventure.

Your tour will concentrate on the later time period of Ancestral Puebloan occupation. Guests will have the opportunity to see several of the most photographic cliff dwellings as well as engage in a short, relatively easy walk to view the natural landscape of Mesa Verde National Park. The Soda Canyon Overlook walk in the morning gives visitors a chance to view Balcony House, taking advantage of its east-facing exposure.
