Some of our reviews:

“Before visiting Mesa Verde, our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) took a wonderful tour of Canyons of the Ancients with SCCA. It was educational, entertaining, and fun. Our guide gave us detailed explanations that got the kiddos’ imaginations going. We learned so much about Pueblo history and gained a new appreciation for the land.” ~Dan M.
“I have traveled to the Four Corners region many times over the years, and this was a girlfriend road trip. We decided we wanted something more than following park service signs and brochures, so we booked Tours by SCCA for a half day in the Ismay area. Wow did they knock it out of the park!! Not only was our guide a font of knowledge on the archaeology and culture of the people who lived in that region hundreds of years ago, but the last 150 years as well. She embraced our constant questions with enthusiasm. I highly recommend Tours by SCCA to guide anyone with a passion for beyond the ordinary.” ~Commuter Girl
“Our guide is an amazing person, she lives, breathes, and shares her bountiful knowledge of the Ancient Puebloan history so that you practically feel lost in the period. The resources at her disposal, archaeologists, museums, parks and first hand knowledge of the local area is unparalleled. I can’t wait to come back for another trip.” ~Morgan H.
“Hiking through the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument is fun and beautiful. However, hiking under the guidance and with the experience of our guide from SCCA provided a very rich and interesting contextual experience that one should not miss. There are so many questions surrounding the living of the Puebloans at the time, their cultures and their exodus that our guide was able to address and enrich with her archaeological background, that our time with her was really extraordinary. I am grateful for her knowledge, enthusiasm and engagement to make our visit even more memorable and truly worth a return visit in the future.” ~ frg0125
