these 2 guys do a great job of giving an interesting overview of the ABQ area from a comfortable trolley. The use of a microphone and several TV screens allowed all to see and hear Mike's dialog. He provided diverse information including history, architecture, the University, Route 66, the RailYard and the town's current affinity for movie making.

We were not able to schedule a trolley tour Easter weekend when we arrived in NM and were a bit disappointed with the Old Town experience. But after our tour today, we have a much better appreciation for the entire city. We are especially impressed with efforts to save historic old buildings, giving them new life with creative uses.

- It began with the catchy name and just got better. Jesse is a master at moving the Medford Oregon made trolley through the traffic and narrow streets of ABQ. Mike held our interest every minute with his informative, entertaining, funny and interactive commentary about the city of his birth. We completed at least 2 of our 'homework assignments". You'll need to take the tour to find out what that's all about. DO IT... It will enhance your visit to Albuquerque immeasurably... and make you a Lobo Fan! Woof Woof!!!

It was a truly wonderful experience. I live in Albuquerque and took my parents for a ride and learned a lot about the city myself. The tour guides were entertaining and knowledgeable. A great way to explore the city and learn unique parts of its history. It’s a great way to get discounts in shops and restaurants throughout the city. Great value!

We had a terrific time on the Best of Alb City tour. Mike and Jesse know their city and you go away with valuable information and a respect for Albuquerque and its citizens. We look forward to having out of town guests join us in the future on this fun and informative way to get to know Albuquerque and the State of NM. Especially liked how Jesse encouraged everyone to try red or green chile before they leave us and go back home.
