The best first thing to do in Albuquerque!

Spend a day exploring Albuquerque’s top attractions aboard the open-air ABQ Trolley. Join us for our hop-on, hop-off "Best of ABQ" guided city tour through Old Town, Nob Hill, Downtown and more. Riders can hop-on and hop-off the Trolley throughout the day, or ride the 120-minute loop once for a traditional tour experience.

Riders can initially board the Trolley either at Hotel Albuquerque near Old Town (800 Rio Grande NW) or at our Downtown Albuquerque headquarters (219 Central Ave NW).

Tickets, tour dates/times, tour stops and more available online!

(The Best of ABQ city tour take place in our climate-controlled van from November-February.)

I have been on quite a few city tours in the past - some good, some bad - but this will certainly be one of the most memorable. Mike and Jesse are likeable and have a very unique style, which encourages interaction from the audience. It's humorous and fun to be part of; the tour includes pop quizzes and the... More

I suggest to anyone coming to Old Town New Mexico for the first time to take this tour. It was very affordable and they showed us around the shops, museums, art galleries and other amazing places.

Jesse and Michael are brilliant owner operators. The tour was fun, extensive, and very informative. Michael really sold us on Albuquerque. He is so enthusiastic! My wife dropped a cherished gold earring given to her by her late father. She called the trolley to see if perhaps it was lost there. We received a call from Jesse that they had... More

Jesse Herron and Mike Silva have such great style and an informative tour that I wish all the tours we have taken, and will take, in other places, were done by them. We learned so much on the Albuquerque tour, and had fun too. We highly recommend it to everyone. Not kidding about Shark Tank.. what if Mike and Jesse... More

The 2 guys that run this are the owners. The commentary was hilarious and the time flew by. Buying your tickets online seemed easier to me. I never did find the store in Old Town that sells them. Online was quick and you are guaranteed a seat. There are no stops; this is not a hop on/off tour. It is... More

We took this trolley tour through Old Town (up Rte. 66), Nob Hill, the University of New Mexico and Albuquerque last week and it was awesome! The business is owned by two very personable guys who take you through all of the sights, pointing out landmarks and places you must see along the way. Tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours,... More

While in New Mexico we took both the ABQ city tour and Sante Fe tour. The Albuquerque tour by far was the most fun, informative and worth the price.
