Somewhat hesitant at first because the peak was hidden in clouds. Glad I went. The ride up and the ride down is spectacular. Being in the clouds at top was an experience you don't... read more

Somewhat hesitant at first because the peak was hidden in clouds. Glad I went. The ride up and the ride down is spectacular. Being in the clouds at top was an experience you don't have everyday. There were views to the East but the view back over Albequerque was clouded over...until you started down and then there it was. Don't... More

Each time we have family visit us in Albuquerque from elsewhere, we take them on a ride on the Sandia Peak Tramway. It is always a great start for a tour of Albuquerque. It offers a glimpse in to how vast NM is, and what varying climates and habitats exist in one state. Most recently, we took our teenage nephew... More

The Sandia Peak Tramway is a wonderful way to spend a couple hours or even a whole afternoon. Our guide was warm and funny, the views were absolutely incredible, and the juxtaposition of dry, red, sunny Albuquerque on one side and the snow-covered ski resort on the other was truly beautiful. I can't imagine how gorgeous this would be at... More

We had a great time on the Sandia peak. The views are amazing. Bring a jacket because it's chilly up there.

Amazing ride through valley and hill to the top, and on top you are blown away with the awesome views, from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. Excellent

Beautiful view. Tram cars crowded. Hard to get to a window to really get a good look. 20 dollar roundway trip-so so price. Staff was great.

The tramway is a must see. We rode the first tram at 9 am with very few visitors on an early Saturday morning. The scenery is spectacular. We had snow on the ground so very little walking around at top. We stayed for a while enjoying the views then took the tramway down and hiked up five miles to enjoy... More
