Spectacular view into the ancient ruins of the cliff dwellers. Wonderful day trip for the family. Be sure to buy your tickets 1 day in advance at the visitor center. Parking can be tight so get there well in advance of your guide time.

This was an excellent tour, run by Holly, driver Mike. This is WELL worth the time and money. It ran like clockwork, Holly was excellent; she shared a lot of very relevant information. This is the best way to learn about Mesa Verde.
