I called for a reservation with the ABQ Trolley Co. but was informed that they were sold out [ a result of visiting during Balloon Fiesta Week ]. The girls staffing the phone mentioned the... More

We took the Bad Tour on Saturday during the balloon fiesta. We had made our reservations a month ago after being told by some friends that ABQ did the best Breaking Bad Tour. I would have to say this was a very professional, well planned tour and it was a lot of fun. Jessie did a great job as the... More

What an honor to win this award! We're so pleased that you enjoyed the BaD Tour. The Trolley Guys are privileged to be able to talk about their favorite TV show, but the real privilege is to know it's been a great experience for riders like you. Thank you! More

I guess it IS the best first thing to do in Albuquerque! This is a very informative, fun activity. They pointed out historical sites in Old Town, along Route 66, went thru the different neighborhoods, by UNM and even viewed homes that have been used in TV and movies (Breaking Bad). The trolley guys - Mike and Jesse - were... More

Local, new-comer, or visitor, doesn't matter, you have to go on the trolley! These guys are so much fun and they provide you with so much information. Not only do they point out important historical sites, they also are up to speed on the current events as well. Definitely recommend. It was one of the best parts of my trip.

This is by far one of the best picture tours I have ever been on. Mike and Jesse, did an excellent job in covering all the scenes and areas we visited. Including a video of each scene on a TV monitor. We were served drinks and chips along with a great narration of the events. Some of the video clips... More

The trolley guys were great! The tour was really good and took us to parts of Albuquerque we would not have normally seen as tourists. Do this tour when you first get to town because the trolley discounts are great!
