Heritage Inspirations Tours in New Mexico sets a high bar in interactive, immersive experiences. All the tours are based on luxury, sophistication and authenticity of the heritage, culture and cuisine of New Mexico. The secret sauce is the team of New Mexico partners it forged through ongoing professional partnerships and friendships. Included in this team of experts are Heritage Hotels and Resorts, accomplished chefs, local farmers and award-winning wineries.
A boutique tour firm headed and owned by Angelisa Espinoza Murray, Heritage Inspirations Tours is noted for offering competitively priced experiences that delve into the heart and soul of New Mexico.
“New Mexico is one of those places that is often overlooked or even mistaken as a foreign country,” says Espinoza. “Many people think of this state as flat, brown and dry.” And while these places, “force solitude and silence amongst the sage flats, the gypsum sand dunes and the arroyos, there is nothing dull about this vast landscape.”
I recently attended the inaugural dinner of Heritage Inspiration’s Farm-to-Table at El Monte Sagrado Resort in Taos, N.M. Offered every last Wednesday of the month through October, these dinners celebrate the growing season through themed-ingredient menus designed to “toast the connection to our food.” Executive Chef Cristina Martinez guided us through a culinary family-style dinner journey based on seasonal foods and recipes inspired by childhood memories. A toasting cocktail, appetizers, salad and main entrée paired with local wines and beers, along with a special hand-crafted dessert, completed our feast.
My other guided experience with Heritage Inspirations was a full-day cultural and heritage tour of Chaco Canyon — the inspiration for the luxury Hotel Chaco in Albuquerque.
The hotel partnered with Heritage Inspirations to offer exclusive Saturday tours to this prominent site. It’s a combination that is hard to beat as Heritage Inspirations furnishes the transportation, does the driving and provides a to-go breakfast, gourmet picnic lunch and bottled water and covers admission fees to the park. All this plus an experienced guide who masterfully shares the stories and history of Chaco Canyon makes for an educational, inspirational and exhilarating day.
Heritage Inspirations offers a sundry of other special-interest tours. Be sure to book early as tours are capacity-limited to preserve the intimate experience.

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
