Old Town ABQ

Great way to learn about Old Town. Ride was an hour and a half. When we were done we went back to see the areas we liked, along with the museums. Great narrator.

I had a great time, in fact I ended up taking this tour twice because the first day only a part of my family was here and when everyone else arrived we decided to all do it again, it was well worth it, the driver & guide made it fun and interesting. They go above and beyond on this tour.... More

Mike went out of his way to accommodate us in the BaD Tour after another company cancelled our tour without any notice. We had a fantastic time... More

The trolley is the BEST way to get to know ABQ quickly and intimately. Based out of the Hotel ABQ. Morning and Afternoon tours. They don't roll unless they have a minium number of Passengers booked. Hope you get Mike as your Guide. He's the Best !

I highly recommend this tour. Mike was the driver and Blake was the narrator. Blake was very entertaining and informative. Great view from any seat. Some of the areas we saw were Nobb Hill, New Mexico University Area, Old Town, New Town, the railroad, the zoo, some museums. Great fun for all ages
