Definitely should be at the top of your list of things to do in Albuquerque. Incredible views of the Sandia Mountains and of Albuquerque We went right before sunset and then ate dinner at Sandiago's. Lovely evening.

Smooth ride, entertaining car drivers(?), and great views from the top. A group that was on one of the trials was followed back to the tram station by a pair of goats, which was funny to see.

Our little excursion on the Sandia Peak Tramway was worth the time and small expense! The views were breathtaking on the way up and even more so at the summit. Be sure and bring your camera and a light jacket as well. Depending on the time of the year it can be comfy at the bottom but nipy or even... More

The tramway is a must for first time Albuquerque visitors. The view is amazing and it's very professional staff make sure everyone feels safe and has a good amount of knowledge by the end of the ride.

The views from the tram are the best you can get and it being the world's longest aerial tramway is a novelty. Remember if you go that it's at least 10 degrees cooler at the top and take a sweater in the spring or fall! Sandiago's restaurant at the bottom makes great margaritas, I much prefer it to the food... More

This is a must thing to do when you're in ABQ. Tram ride was awesome. We went there on a weekday and still, the tram was almost full. The tram can fit 50 persons max. Those who have a little fear of heights, you better stay in the middle of the car but that means, you won't be able to... More

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
