This was a great tour to get an overview of Albuquerque. The driver and guide were friendly, had in depth knowledge of the area and kept the group engaged. I was with my spouse while at a conference and word spread about the tour and recommendations were plentiful.

We took a trolley ride around Albuquerque because it departed from the Hotel Albuquerque and we had a couple of hours to wait before our room was ready for check in. We purchased the final 2 tickets so obviously this tour is very popular. The tour was greatly enhanced by our tour guide "Blake" who had stories galore and even... More

Good to get tickets in advance as our trolley was 100% full and we were there in off season. Great tour guide, Mike, was excellent explaining how all the history tied together and highlighted more current events, such as filming of various movies in the various neighborhoods. Gave us a good understanding of what else we wanted to see in... More

This trolley ride is a must do if you're new to Albuquerque. It takes about 1 and a half hours and provides a live narrated tour of 11 sites in the city. It was a wonderful introduction to Albuquerque, its culture, and its neighborhoods. My only regret is not having the time to return to some of the sites so... More

This is the best way to start your visit to Albuquerque. Tour guide Rorik and safe driver (and true Lobo) Mike do a wonderful job of providing the history and highlights of the city in an entertaining, informative, and interactive tour. We were extremely happy with ABQ Trolley Co. because we had booked our tour back in April but were... More

Whether you're a local or visitor to Albuquerque, this is a must 1 & 1/2 tour of the city!! The historic and quirky neighbors are visited with Mike as your engaging, knowledable, and fun tour guide! And Rorik is your safe trolley driver! You'll visit historic Old Town, Nob Hill and UNM campus as well as drive down Route 66!!... More

Mike and Rorik were our guides. We got an incredible feel for the city and found all the places we wanted to return to. The tour was fun and informative. It is a great way to spend 90 minutes and is worth the investment. After the tour, head over to Seasons, the best restaurant in town according to two different... More
