The tramway is an easy & scenic way to get to Sandia Peak and enjoy an amazing view of Albuquerque. It's reachable within a short ride from Old Town and an amazing experience in itself. For restaurants you have Sandiago's at the base with great sunset views, great maragaritas or High Finance on the peak with even more expansive views.

The drive up to it is beautiful and you don't have to wait long to take a flight up. Breathtaking view and very friendly staff. Our tram operator had done over 8000 flights and had lots of great information on the peaks!!

Sandia Tramway was a must see if you're in the Albuquerque area. The tram itself is a 15 minute ride, standing in both directions. While there is handicapped parking and a handicapped trail at the top, the tram ride might be difficult for those who have issues standing for long periods. Our tram was not crowded, but I could see... More

This was so much fun. Beautiful ride to the top of the mountain. Can stay as long as you like and then ride back down. There is a restaurant at the top where you can have lunch.

The ride up and down is breath taking with all the wondrous sights. Taking the tram was a break away from the city tourist attractions. Bring your camera. We dined at the restaurant at the top called High Finance where you could eat while taking in the magnificent views of the Sandia mountains. Make this tram trip a must you... More

The tram is expensive for a family of four but we were glad we did it. The ride itself up was way too cramped but the ride down was enjoyable. The view at the top was beautiful, yet chilly. We loved the backside of the mountain where the ski lifts were. It was nice and peaceful back there and not... More

My husband and I decided to take the tram up and do some hiking at the peak. We had such a great time. There ard so many trails around there in varying degrees of difficulty. We were sore and tired from the previous day so we decided to take it easy and go up to the stone cabin (at the... More

If you are in the Albuquerque are this is a must do visit. The Arial Tram goes from about 6,000 feet to 10,000 feet height. It is a fifteen minute ride. The views of the valley and the mountains are fantastic. The attendants are very concerned about the health and welfare of the passengers. We had a long standby at... More

Every first time visitor to Albuquerque should ride the tram. Only drawbacks are it can get crowded, and beer is too expensive.

We thought the tram had amazing views and was an amazing stop to our cross country journey! The conductors were very informative and did their best to keep everyone at ease (I don't care for heights!). We highly recommend this to anyone visiting Albuquerque!! Make sure to look out for the 1955 TWA crash below!!
