Blake kept us informed and engaged in his tour of Alberquerque. One of the best tours I've enjoyed on my American city touring experiences to date. Bravo!

We decided to take a tour of Albuquerque and what a tour it was! We took a heated, Mercedes tour bus. Our tour guy (a bearded gentleman) was fabulous and there was not a pause during the tour without history, local tidbits, interesting and wild facts seeping into our minds. Albuquerque is a wonderful place and ABQ Trolley Co. made... More

Great tour guide, Blake. He gave us a wonderful and very informative tour of his city. We saw museums, restaurants, and other things to explore after our tour, all while riding in a very nice van.

We took our daughter, son in law and their three kids (10, 6 and 18 months) for the ABQ Trolley Company's Christmas Lights tour. Cool but not cold weather made the 75 minute ride in the open air trolley very comfortable. The trolley does have snap on plastic windows which helps to some degree to protect you from the cool...

We were part of a large group that had most of the seats in the trolley. Mike, the guide, was very entertaining and informative and kept the group engaged with trivia quizzes (and very cool prizes for the winners). The trolley has plastic windows to keep it a bit warmer than complete open air. They also have blankets available for... More

Wow! An Albuquerque gem! Trolley ride, Santa on the train, hot cocoa, cookies, storytelling by Mrs. Claus, magicians, etc. Worth every penny. My kids were in tears when it was over...because it was over. Wish this was more than just 4 nights in December because we would have gone again. Cannot wait until next year! This will now be an...

It is a fun ride through the downtown area. Jesse our tour guide was terrific! Tripadvisor wanted at least 100 characters for the review so here they are.

On 09/16/16, I took this tour and enjoyed it very much. The trolley is very comfortable to ride and we went all over Albuquerque. The tour guide was informative and others on this site stated that this was a must see tour and I agree. I was given a discount because I picked up a brochure on the tour. I... More
