The tram car was old and worn with dirty glass and scraped paint (in need of some updating) and the restaurant at the top was pricey. Service a bit slow even though not crowded. The view from the top kept the rating from being lower. (V2011)

My husband and I loved the tram ride. It wasn't too crowded when we went right at sunset. The view from the top is magnificent and was a great way for this PNW couple to get acquainted with the area. We brought our 6 month old daughter and were glad we had her warm 'bear' suit because it got pretty... More

I first rode the Tram in 1969, just 3 years after it opened. I fell in love with Albuquerque from the first time I was here, and my Tram experiences only contribute to my desire to explore ways to move here permanently. I could never visit this wonderful place without riding the Tram, and this trip happened on the first... More

If in the area, this is a must! The view is breathtaking. We went up at sunset and it was amazing and seeing all the lights coming down was beautiful.

Neat ride. Interesting on top. Restaurant busy but pretty good food after a long wait. A little nippy -bring a jacket.

This is a "must do" when visiting Albuquerque. There are also some great hiking trails at the foothills right by the tram. Awesome Sandia mountains.

I'm glad we checked the website, because the tram was going to be closed for maintenance for most of our vacation. It was great going up, the guide told us some sights to look for, but mostly they were on the other side that we were standing on. On the way down it was a different guide who didn't have... More

Everyone we talked to previous to our trip advised taking the tam and it didn't disappoint. We did it during the day which was windy so views were a bit limited by sand in the air causing a foggy effect. but it was still breathtaking. And we enjoyed a nice dinner at the restaurant on top.

The views are interesting but not spectacular. However, it would have been great to hike around the peak area...but not in windy conditions and snow covering the paths. Maybe it would be lovely with more snow. And fun to ski.

The view is amazing all the way up! Make sure you bring a sweater because it gets cold with the wind. We took the tram ride down in Sunset and had a spectacular view!
