If you like to take tours and get the inside information or just get a good overview, here are several we think you would like. We plan to add more as we find others.
ABQ TROLLEY is the “best first thing to do in Albuquerque.” This unique trolley begins the trip a short walk from here and winds through neighborhoods along Central Avenue, formerly Route 66, downtown Albuquerque, the University of New Mexico, and Nob Hill. Spend about 85 minutes learning some of the Route 66 history in Albuquerque, film facts and trivia about the Duke City. The open-air ABQ Trolley runs April through October. The ABQ Trolley X is a smaller closed trolley, so you can take their great city tour in the winter as well. Buy your "Breaking Bad" trolley tour tickets well in advance--they sell out quickly! They also offer specialty tours through the year focusing on brewpubs, the Route 66 Summerfest, and the best burger places.
HISTORIC WALKING TOUR. The Albuquerque Museum offers a docent-led tour of Old Town at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday through Sunday from mid-March through mid-December. Immerse yourself our unique history and culture, stroll along the main streets and back alleys of Old Town to view historic buildings and architectural details and learn what makes Albuquerque the vibrant multi-cultural city it is today. If you can't make the guided tour, pick up a self-guided walking tour brochure at the front desk.
ALBUCREEPY DOWNTOWN GHOST WALK. If you're into ghosts, spirits and the supernatural, enjoy "100 spine-tingling minutes" of Albuquerque's more interesting side on the Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk.
DUKE CITY PEDALER. You can enjoy an easy bike ride and sample Albuquerque beers and pubs at the same time. You MUST see the Duke City Pedaler to believe it. Imagine a sort of bar... on wheels... with people sitting on both sides. It seats 14, so take your good friends along or make some new ones on the ride. If you have a group, you can rent the Pedaler for a private tour. Come to Albuquerque for a conference and take the Duke City Pedaler for an awesome team event!
