Mike and Rorik were our guides. We got an incredible feel for the city and found all the places we wanted to return to. The tour was fun and informative. It is a great way to spend 90 minutes and is worth the investment. After the tour, head over to Seasons, the best restaurant in town according to two different... More

Our tour guide was very personable. Since she was a local, her stories seemed very genuine and it was a very relaxed atmosphere. The discount brochure they give you after the tour is a nice bonus.

Make sure you book your tickets early! This tour goes 2X per day and seems to fill for each one. My wife and I took it on our second time to ABQ, should have done it right away since we learned so much more than just poking around on our own. The info is very nicely diversified - from history...

I have had the pleasure to do two different trolley experiences. The first was a private rental. It was a birthday party with a pirate theme. So of there were costumes and lots and lots of laughter with friends.We drove around two on a set route and played silly games. It was perfect. The second was equally as satisfying. l... More

We really enjoyed this tour (Best of ABQ City Tour). We have been to Albuquerque before but we saw so much on this trolley ride (actually a bus that looks like a trolley!). The tour guide was wonderful...she was personable and knew a lot about the city and the history. I particularly liked the tours of the three neighborhoods (Huning... More

We learned of the Trolley Tour about a week before arriving in Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta. I would say, as they say, this is the best first thing to do! The guys working...SORRY I do not recall their names, were very knowledgeable of the area, both having gone to the university there! The Trolley meets in Old Town Albuquerque....a... More

EXCELLENT. the guide (Roric I think it's spelled) was very knowledgeable and great fun. you see the historic stuff, some neighbourhoods, the college, some sets from TV shows and local areas. well worth the money and gives you a good view of which areas to go back and see in more detail
