I love that this is a small local business. The operators were friendly and enthusiastic. However, I go on city trolley tours in almost every city I visit and this one was just average. There isn't much to see in Albuquerque compared to similar sized cities. Hoping on and off wasn't really appropriate because the trolley doesn't return for a... More

Even if you've done the tour before - go again. I went on the tour a couple of years ago and had a wonderful time - had fun and learned a great deal about Albuquerque too! I had a different guide this tour - so, a slightly different perspective - it was great! It was not "the same tour, over... More

Tour of city and "Breaking Bad Tours are both lots of fun. Reasonable price and knowledgeable and friendly guides equals a "home run" attraction.

We had an amazing time on this tour. Mike, our tour guide, was such an awesome guide. He is the ultimate Breaking Bad enthusiast. Not only did he do an awesome job showing us all the highlights of Breaking Bad, but he even told us about the history of Albuquerque. Make sure to get there early so you can choose... More

You owe it to yourself to take this tour. The number of seats are limited at 12, so plan accordingly. It's almost four hours long, so you get A Lot for your money. Our driver was Mike, not Ehrmantraut, who is extremely knowledgable of the show, its locations, and Albaquerque in general. There are trivia questions for BB prizes during... More

We took the 90 minute tour of Albuquerque. Blake was an outstanding tour guide, he knows the city and the history so well, had tons of interesting information and tips to share. This should definitely be the first thing you do on a trip to this lovely city.
