Our tour guide Allyson (on the back of her shirt lest you forget) was bright, funny, and well-informed. Our seats on the trolley were very comfy. This tour is one of the best of its kind. It's a high fly-over of the city, but has quite a few interesting points. As seniors, we got five bucks off the price of... More

If I had to choose one thing to do in Albuquerque, it would be the ABQ trolley tour. The tour offered fun facts and great history for all age groups. The tour route gave a fantastic overview of the city that would be hard to replicate without a knowledgeable guide. They give a coupon booklet with great offers at the... More

I experienced my first ABQ trolley ride celebrating my friend's 65th birthday. She invited 14 close friends for a night out on the town. I wasn't sure of what to expect with peddling a trolley on a late March evening...I had many questions in anticipation of the ride-- Would it be too cold? Will it be too strenuous? How do... More

Our 3rd visit to ABQ but all we had seen was Old Town and the Airport. This time we took the ABQ Trolley and we were pleasantly surprised by all we had to learn about ABQ. The ride gave us a great 90 minute tour of all aspects of the town from the University, to the Museums, the old rail... More

Knowledgeable guides take you on a 90 minute tour around Albuquerque. Great way to get a quick lay of the land. Entertaining and trolley allows everyone a good view. First come First serve seating so make sure you get to the trolley 15-20 minutes be scheduled to leave!

Lively fun introduction to the wonderful city of Albuquerque by friendly tour team Jesse and Allyson. They show you some highlights of the city... But also some of the quirky sights as well. Brief videos enhance the experience and silly quizzes (for prizes!) make their obvious enthusiasm for the city contagious. They went above and beyond expectations to give us... More

This was the perfect way to be introduced to the city. We saw a lot of different areas of the city and learned more about their history. We learned why ABQ is a great location for filming movies as well as saw some of the quirkiness of the town such as the UFO home. If you are a Breaking Bad... More
