ABQ Trolley Co. presents The Sandia Sundown tour

ABQ Trolley Co. & Sandiago's Mexican Grill at The Tram to offer a unique Albuquerque experience
Albuquerque, NM - ABQ Trolley Co., in conjunction with Sandiago's Mexican Grill at The Tram, announce the first ever "Sandia Sundown" tour. This unique, custom tour will be a way for Albuquerque visitors and locals to enjoy an all-inclusive, guided tour to the base of Sandia Peak for a sunset dining experience. The first Sandia Sundown tour is Wednesday, June 10th.

ABQ Trolley Co. will pick guests up in Historic Old Town on a completely-custom, uniquely-Albuquerque, open-air trolley and voyage on a historical journey down Fourth Street, the former El Camino Real (the Royal Road). From Fourth Street, the Trolley will cruise along Tramway Blvd. and view "where the buffalo roam" while approaching amazing views of the Sandia Mountains. Guests will enjoy reserved patio seating while feasting on a delicious meal complemented by spectacular views of shimmering city lights and a breathtaking Albuquerque sunset.

All-inclusive package includes custom tour from Historic Old Town, dinner, dessert and choice of a glass of house wine or margarita for $49 per person. A ride on the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway is optional, but not included in the price. "We feel that this tour will be especially popular with visitors who are looking for a unique dining option that captures a very unique Albuquerque experience" say co-owners, Jesse Herron and Michael M. Silva, Jr. "It is also a much more affordable option than the $50 cab ride that visitors currently pay to reach the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway."

The Trolley departs Historic Old Town (Plaza Don Luis - 303 Romero St. NW) at 6pm and arrives back in Historic Old Town at approximately 10pm.

ABQ Trolley Co., a private enterprise, is Albuquerque's only city tour company. Please visit our website,, for more information.
