Какво ще правите

Our exploration of the Old Town Plaza will begin with coffee, tea and biscochitos on the balcony of our home, looking out over the original town square and historic San Felipe Church. We will overlook history as well, and gaze back from the Tewa people on who’s land Old Town was built, to life on the plaza during the Spanish, Mexican and American colonial periods.

Next we will undertake a walking tour of the plaza with a focus on the old adobe architecture and the stories associated with the buildings and smaller placitas that make up Old Town, using historical photos and visuals to support the information. This stroll will include secrets and lore unknown even to most Albuquerque residents, interaction with some of the "old timers" that live and work here, and pointers what to see and do and where to eat, tailored to the needs and interests of each group. Old Town is a valuable community resource and there are frequent impromptu happenings- quinceaneras, vintage car parades, etc. The tour will embrace these spontaneous events as they occur making the visit to Old Town even more vibrant and personal.

Finally, at the end of the tour experience, participants have the option of being served lunch at La Placita Dining Room in the Manuel Armijo House, one of the oldest structures on the Plaza, built in 1706.

I am an educator and a history buff with deep love and respect for Albuquerque's Old Town Plaza where I make my home. Gathering information from traditional sources and from the stories and personal narratives of many of the people whose families have called Old Town home for centuries, I endeavor to guide guests on a trip through time, from the present to the past and back again.

Greg is a great storyteller! It was great getting the history of New Mexico through the lens of Old Town Albuquerque. He is very kind and knowledgeable and open to questions. We had a wonderful experience.

Greg cares for and is an advocate of Albuquerque. This was evident in his story telling. He brought to life historic structures that many take for granted.

We had the pleasure of Greg’s company on a beautiful, crisp December afternoon. Greg met us in the Old Town plaza and was graciously standing in the plaza holding a parking space even though we arrived on foot. He started the tour in his cozy home overlooking the plaza where he served us delicious tea and local, biscochitos cookies. He then brought us through the 1500’s to present day with a narrated, picture-infused, folksy history lesson on Albuquerque and Old Town. We then went outside and he uncovered all the quaint details and small nuances of the many layers of history and evolution of the plaza. Greg is not a resident of the plaza he is one with it and his love of his surrounds shines through his narrative but delivered in that low key, but authoritative, “like he was there for the last 500 years” style. There are more grandiose tours I have been on at world heritage sites but the quaintness of Old Town is perfectly complimented and best brought to life by this folksy, equally quaint and true lover of Old Town. Greg told us his nickname is the ambassador and his Daughter is still in disbelief that “people actually pay to hang out with you.” Well we did and would gladly do again. Thanks Mr. Ambassador for an easy, low key but very interesting and informational tour. Cannot recommend you more highly. This tour is great most of all because of YOU, with just a little help from possibly one of the cutest plazas on the planet!

The highlight of our trip to Albuquerque! Greg graciously made time for my friend and I out of his busy schedule. We sat overlooking the Old Town Plaza, sipping Christmas tea, and eating Biscochitos while Greg thoughtfully explained the founding history of New Mexico and Albuquerque. He spoke in a way that was engaging, encouraged questions, and made sense to a non-history buff. We then walked around Old Town while Greg pointed out important buildings, sculptures, and points of significance. If you were to walk through without Greg, you would not be able to appreciate the depth of its roots. Do yourself a favor and just book! Enjoy!
