“ABQ Trolley is a must!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

ABQ Trolley was a great experience although I wished we would have gone on it on our first day in Albuquerque because we learned so much about the city and also received discounts to many of the places that we had already visited. Jesse and Mike are great tour guides with wonderful personalities who make the trolley ride enjoyable. They even had us pretending we were on a roller coaster going down a hill. It was a lot of fun and well worth the $25 charge considering you can get most of it back with many of the discounts given, e.g., two for one offers at zoo and other museums, free milkshakes at Route 66 Diner, and 10% off many establishments. We will definitely be back for another Balloon Fiesta and ride the ABQ Trolley again! Great guys and well deserving of the #1 ranking on Trip Advisor. Thanks for making our visit to Albuquerque so enjoyable.

“Absolutely a must thing to do”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This should be one of the first things you do when visiting Albuquerque. A fun way to get to know the city and know where you might want to go next. The guide/owners are the best. We learned so many things about the city and re-visited some of the sights mentioned on the tour. There were 8 of us traveling together and we all enjoyed it.

“Wonderful tour”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Very interesting tour of Albuquerque. Make sure you reserve you a seat and don't miss it. You ride in a trolley car on wheels and go all over the city.

“Fun on the trolley in Albuquerque”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

If you are in Albuquerque and want to learn a lot about the city in 90 minutes or so, then don't miss the ABQ Trolley tour. It is owned and run by two local men ("Two guys and a trolley") who have a lot to tell you about their city in an informative, humorous way. They alternate as driver and tourguide, so we can't tell you which one is better, but it doesn't matter. They both are excellent, and they play well off each other. We were impressed with the tour, and we will do it again on our return trip! Don't miss this one!
