“The First Thing to do in Albuquerque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

The ABQ Trolley Company really is the first best thing to do in Albuquerque. Jesse and Mike are super hosts and obviously love their city. Jesse is informative and friendly without being saccharin. This is a positive and useful small business that really fulfills an important niche for tourism. We recommend highly.

“Excellent Tour and Excellent Guides”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

I went on the Bad Tour with some friends who are huge Breaking Bad fans. Although I've only seen a few episodes, the tour and the guides were outstanding. During our tour Mike was the driver and Jesse was our host. They are both very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Albuquerque and Breaking Bad and you can tell they want you to feel the same.
The tour is 3.5 hours. Which seems long. However, the time flew by as we toured all over ABQ. There are flat screen monitors on the trolly that provide scenes from Breaking Bad that correspond to the different locations you visit. There are endless trivia questions for the die-hard fans, with little prizes that are donated from local shops.
All in all the tour is handled so well you don't even need to be a fan of the show to enjoy your time. That being said, everyone else on the sold out tour was a major Breaking Bad fan and they all had a wonderful time. I've never seen so many smiling faces after 3.5 hours on a trolly!

“The Bad Trolley Tour is REALLY Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

If you are a fan of Breaking Bad, the ABQ Trolley Co. Bad Tour is outstanding! I have taken the Trolley several times now on various tour themes. This Bad Tour is awesome! Anything and everything you wanted to know about the show and the behind the scenes things you love to know! You get to see the actual locations of Walt's house, Los Pollos Hermanos, Jesse's house and TONS of surprises along the way. If you go to Albuquerque, the guys at ABQ Trolley Co. Will treat you right! Yo! Another bonus is if you bring your dog, they are welcomed on the tours as well!

“Afternoon on the ABQ Trolley Co.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

When you visit Alburquerque, N.M. make sure you ride the ABQ trolley. The trolley is in Old Town. The trolley is owned by two friends Jesse and Mike. Jesse does the driving, very good job, Jesse. Mike is the tour guide. Mike makes the trip very interesting and a lot of fun. We learned a lot about the area and had fun doing it. This is one of the best city tours we have ever taken. They are both college graduates and are very knowledgeable about the history and future of the area.They took us in the neighborhood where some of the movie Wild Hogs was filmed. Remember the house with the red door in one of the opening scenes? Well it was not shot in Cincinnatte, it was filmed in N.M. Mike gave us a lot of fun facts during the whole tour. Never a dull moment!

“Breaking Bad Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

This tour was amazing. We loaded up in the trolley and right of the bat, the tour guides started the games. We did breaking bad trivia and bingo for prizes. We stopped at twisters (los pollos hermanos) got out walked around the building and got a free drink. We also were able to get out and walk around at Gus Fring's house and 'doorbell ditch' his house. The whole tour was very entertaining and definitely worth the money to any breaking bad fan
