What You'll Get
Trolley tours are a great way to get to know a city while staying safely out of the clutches of roving bands of contortionists. Keep the nimble predators away and experience all Albuquerque has to offer with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one adult ticket to a Best of ABQ City Tour from ABQ Trolley Co. (up to a $25 value).
ABQ Trolley Company was founded by two all-Albuquerque burqueños with professional backgrounds in the northern New Mexico tourism industry. The 76-minute Best of ABQ City Tour follows an 18-mile course, which highlights Albuquerque hot spots and begins near the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. The journey, which allows sightseers to sit back and take in the view (as opposed to hop on, hop off tours) blazes a path past Museum Row and through Downtown, before cruising on course to the city's competitive baseball, basketball, and jousting stadiums. With witty and historical commentary, the burqueños entertain and inform locals and visitors alike as they roll past the Rio Grande Zoo, the University of New Mexico, and Nob Hill, among other essential Albuquerque attractions. The satisfaction-guaranteed tour concludes where it began in Old Town, where the knowledgeable guides bid farewell to guests and point them toward a good place to lunch, shop, or soul search.
ABQ's custom-built enlightenment vessel is robed in playful colors and original artwork, with Southwest-inspired turquoise trim along the exterior. Its open-air frame is held together with wrought-iron railings and is equipped to charge forth into the depths of Albuquerque or a whale's belly rain or shine.
