about ABQ Trolley Co.
Before ABQ Trolley’s grand opening in 2007, Albuquerque had never seen tours quite like the one this company offers. The tour group was created to provide visitors a front row seat to the best sights and sounds of Albuquerque. The open-air trolleys escort guests on 85-minute adventures around the city while making stops at major points of interest. Simply find the tour that appeals to you the most and get ready for an unforgettable experience that you’ll want to try again and again.

Best of ABQ Trolley Tour
This fully guided, multi-media experience is the only one of its kind in Albuquerque! The Best of ABQ Trolley Tour not only takes you to some of the city’s most interesting places, but also allows you to explore the many uses of red and green chile, which is a New Mexican specialty. You’ll also learn the thundering call of University of New Mexico students and discover locations that have been used for major films.
The Hopper Brew Cruise
Beer lovers, unite! This “hop-on, hop-off” journey is a great way to experience some of the area’s best breweries! The Hopper Brew Cruise takes place the last Friday of most months. You’ll have access to unlimited trolley transportation during your 3-hour beer “flight.” You’ll visit approximately 8 breweries (30 minutes each) for tastings on discounted beers. Cheers to that!
Breaking Bad Tour
The Breaking Bad Tour is a favorite among fans of the hit TV show! It’s so popular, in fact, that it has been featured in USA Today, People, LA Times, Travel Channel, and more! Tour groups will board an 11-seat Mercedes van and visit major Breaking Bad filming locations. This includes Walter White’s home, the Car Wash, Saul Goodman’s office, and Los Pollos Hermanos.
