Trams ran on time, staff were knowledgeable about the mountain, the trees, wildlife and flowers. The restaurant on the top has the most amazing views, but book to avoid disappointment. It's colder up on the mountain, so take something warm to put on!

Riding the tram to the peak of the Sandia Mountains is a must do event when in Albuquerque. We went on a Saturday night and it was very busy but they run so effeciently the wait wasn't long. Once on top spend as long as you like and take in the fabulous views. Catch a tram back down at your... More

We live in the area, but when friends and family come this is one of our first stops with them. The staff is friendly and the cable car operators/attendants provide you history of the Tram along with interesting facts of the area and usually make it more enjoyable with their sense of humor. The trails are great and the food... More

So worth the money. Arrived early and hopped right on a tram. With young kids, appreciated that there were restrooms both at the top and the bottom of the tram. The tram operators had good personalities and made the 15 minute ride interesting. They were also great communicators about what to expect " we are going to feel a slight... More

Visit the High Finance Restaurant at the top for dinner or just drinks at the tavern. We enjoyed the microbrew beer available as well as the hot chocolate with whipped cream.

Loved the tram and the restaurant at the top. I wish the brochure had given more info about the hikes at the top. We would have hiked but didn't bring water and the kids didn't have tennis shoes. If you like hiking, make sure you hike at the top!

Lovely experience. Having visited Likes Peak last year, we were concerned about being cold and light headed but went anyway. It was plenty warm and downright hot in the sun at the top, and while the air is light, it's fine if you take your time and don't over exert and hydrate. We went on a Friday afternoon and as... More
