At $20 the tramway (cable car to Europeans) is a good value and well worth the drive out of town to get there. Brilliant views enroute and from the top (of course) Try and make time for a walk at the top, ideally to the stone hut!. (surprisingly) the restaurant at the top was very reasonably priced

A Tram trip up the side of the mountain, Extremely interesting operated by a very knowledgeable guide. Great opportunity to hike, back-pack and see local wild life on the top.

This is a 15 minute trip up the mountain on a tram. The views from above are amazing, the air is crisper. Enjoyed doing this. Would highly recommend it.

If you are short on time on your visit Albuquerque, The Sandia Tram should be on the very top of your list of things to do. It’s currently #1 on Trip Advisor for a reason. The Tram is the longest of its kind and the views from the ride are quite spectacular. The ride takes you from the foothills of... More

The Sandia Peak Tramway is a nice way to get the layout of the city of Albuquerque, but if you don't make it up there, you haven't missed much. It is a crowded 15 minute ride to the top. The view is spectacular from both all sides. If you like to hike, there are several nice trails, but some of... More

The sightseeing begins the moment you get on the tram. It was great that we had a guide (although not everybody was listening) and, of course, the view of miles and miles of New Mexico from the top was amazing. There are many decks at the top to view from and lots of helpful information. The best thing was the... More
