On 09/16/16, I took this tour and enjoyed it very much. The trolley is very comfortable to ride and we went all over Albuquerque. The tour guide was informative and others on this site stated that this was a must see tour and I agree. I was given a discount because I picked up a brochure on the tour. I... More

First of all. I booked a trolley tour and I was definitely disappointed when a van showed up. The lady said it's because they can't predict if the weather is going to be good. But it was a sunny day. I don't see why we can't get a trolley. I don't know if it was displayed on the website if... More

Tour guide was entertaining and informative. Personally I don't find ABQ super interesting but the guide was pleasant and made the trip fun and we learned about the town. Saw some Breaking Bad sites and an very good overview of the city. I would recommend the tour.

Do not miss this tour! The tour guide and her driver are fun, knowledgeable and engaging people. The tour is 90 minutes and for a first time visitor to ABG, I walked away with an incredible respect and exciting interest in Albuquerque. I would love to share every thing we saw and experienced but that would ruin it for you.... More

This was my first trip to Albuquerque, traveling solo and not knowing anyone in the area. The ABQ Trolley was an excellent start to my vacation. I learned a lot about the city and the tour helped me to get my bearings. The driver and guide were both friendly, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The tour also included trivia, small prizes,...

Open April-Oct, the Trolley is a great way to see and learn about Albq and NM. Lived in Albq since 1975 and learned things I did not know. Mike Silva and his staff are first rate. Friendly, helpful and a great source of info and details for what to do next and where else to go. Lots of Breaking Bad... More

This was the first thing we did when we got to ABQ. We pre-booked our tickets online & we're glad we did because our trolley was full so people that walked up when we were leaving were not able to buy tickets to get on. It was easy to find the meeting spot & there is free parking while you're... More

Our tour guide is a native of Albuquerque and a UNM grad so she was very knowledgeable and shared her enthusiasm with us. The ride encompassed a variety of neighborhoods, a drive by University of New Mexico, and lively commentary along the way.
