We opted to go up the Tram at sunset but couldnt quite make it there on time to see the sunset from the top. The sunset from the bottom of the tramway is really gorgeous and we had a great view of it. It started getting dark as we were going up the tram and by the time we got... More

Beautiful views, a must to see. Eat lunch at the restaurant on top, the food is wonderful and the price reasonable. If you are a hiker you can hike from the bottom to the top. We met a young man from Australia who did just that and said it was a wonderful experience. He said it took him about 3... More

If you love the outdoors and a beautiful view, this place is for you! They cram people into the tram on the way up and down and we thought we might be at a disadvantage because we were the last to board for our "flight," but we ended up being right next to a window instead of in the middle....

The ride up and back is great fun and there's a beautiful view from the top. Can be cold on top so take a jacket. We didn't and were sorry. Great experience for children.

The tram is a great thing to do in Albuquerque. Good hikes when you arrive at the top, do not forget to take some water. Tram staff was very professional and gave a good talk when traveling to the top.

We visited and took the tram up. There was three of us- all of different age and physical condition. We took the tram up and had an amazing time taking photos and site seeing. The tram operators were both very informative and professional. We hiked to the top of Sandia Crest and had a fantastic time taking photos. Take a... More

An outstanding, high altitude ride to the top of Sandia Peak, with incredible views of Albuqerque and distant mountains. Restaurants and other amenities available at the top. Also several trail heads to begin a hike, which I highly recommend. All in all well worth the time and effort!

I wish I had planned this part of my trip a little better but it all worked out! There are many hikes to take once you get to the top of the peaks. We took a short trail, but didn't bring any water or snacks so didn't go for more than a mile or two. Views are fabulous - and... More
