A must see and do

Great all around experience Good food at the top with some great hiking. Consider coming down in the evening to see the lights of the city.

This tram ride was a great experience which gave us a wonderful view of the whole city. Best time to go is when it first opens to avoid lines. We had a nicellunch at the resturant at the top.

The day I went to Sandia Peak was a very busy tourists day so my experience wasn't as nice as I wanted it to be but, the views were fantastic. It was an hour long wait to get my ticket and another forty minutes for my treat ride; both ways. The Mexican restaurant was a little pricy but the food... More

If you have never been on the tram and aren't too terrible afraid of height you should make the trip. The view on the way up is beautiful, and the view from the top is awe inspiring. Be sure to take a jacket since it is always a bit colder up above ten thousand feet and the wind really bites... More

Worth the wait in line. Be sure to get there early to avoid long lines and crowded tram cars during tourist season! Awesome view from the top!

We didn't do this last time we were in ABQ, but we made it a point to do so this time. It's well worth the cost (which is 20 bucks for an adult) just to take in the amazing view both at the top, and on the ride up and down. Had a cold craft beer at the top as... More

The ride was thrilling with some amazing view of the mountain close up but the best part was the fantastic sunset and vista of Albuquerque by night. The sunset scene is busy with everyone trying to get up before sunset so go early to avoid crowded trams and pick a spot early if photos are your thing

This seems to be the classic place to take your visitors :) It's a little pricey, but it's a pretty sweet view. They say you can see the TWA wreckage, but I think the separate hike up there is worth it. Little restaurant up top as well. I'd say that it's best to go for sunset. That has been my... More
