Blake, out tour guide, was quite knowledgeable. We were only in town for a short stay but after the tour felt that we had a good handle to things to see, places to eat and good sense of the city's history.

Local maps and information are a bit confusing, but you meet the trolley inside the Hotel Albuquerque, where there is free parking. Our guide shared interesting information about several different areas of the city, and you could hear every word -- even in the way-back seats of the comfortable van. Time and money well-spent.

My husband and I visited Albuquerque for three short days. Last visit for both of us, 25 years plus. We wanted to see the neighborhoods and growth of this wonderful Community. Our tour in a comfortable van with large windows, allowed 10 passengers to cruise through Albuquerque and be educated and updated. Our guide Blake was clear, personable, and proud/knowledgeable...

Came to visit my friends and they suggested we all go on the ABQ Trolley tour and I am so glad she did. Blake our guide was so much fun. Loved the way he presented the history of Albuquerque. Even my friends learned some new things. A must if you are visiting.

Had a great tour with this company. Small group of 8 in a very comfortable Mercedes van. Our guide, Blake, was so knowledgeable & informative. This tour is a wonderful overview of the city.

I grew up in ABQ, and thought I knew most of what there was to know about the area. However, when my large family came to visit, we took them all on the trolley tour. They made a special trip for us and we all had a lovely time learning about the city.

Thank ABQDoc
