ABQ Trolley Ten Buck Tour & New Breaking Bad Tour

ABQ Trolley Co’s $10 tours run once a month this summer, and if you missed our previous post on this at the start of the 2012 season, here’s a reminder of how to save on this uniquely Albuquerque experience.  

The discounted Albuquerque trolley tours are called the Ten Buck Tour, offering more than 50% off the usual adult ticket tour price of $25.   The $10 ticket includes tax, and the narrated tour includes fun Albuquerque trivia and prizes from local businesses. 

The next one is on Friday July 20, 2012, at 6:30 pm, and 18 seats remain at time of writing. These discounted $10 tours sell out fast so buy Ten Buck Tour tickets online in advance. Tell them that you heard about it at ABQ on the Cheap!  

They say the tour is geared towards Duke City residents, but visitors are welcome too – in fact, I reckon it could be even more fun for visitors to hang out with locals on the trip! The customized open-air trolley leaves Old Town and takes you through Downtown, along Route 66 through Nob Hill, and around Barelas, Tingley Beach and more.

The Ten Buck tours run each month on various dates and times through the season, departing from Old Town, and tickets are usually available for purchase about one to two weeks before the tour date. 


The new ABQ Trolley Co. Breaking Bad tour has been receiving a lot of media attention. I’ve been reading about the ‘BaD Tour’ everywhere – a three hour, narrated tour of Breaking Bad locations.  If you’ve heard the BaD buzz too, then tickets go on sale on July 18 for the next tour dates, which are all on Sundays at 9 am:   
August 5
August 12
August 19 
August 26

However, these are not On the Cheap prices, the tours cost $60 per person, although Breaking Bad fans might consider that a deal for a Breaking Bad fest, touring Walter White and Jesse Pinkman’s Albuquerque (the exteriors only) and including trivia and prizes from Albuquerque businesses.  The BaD tours have all sold out to date, so act fast to get tickets to the Breaking Bad trolley tour  when they go on sale at 9 am on July 18.

    The $10 ones, lol. Not the $60! But looking on their website they sure have a whole variety of tours, including a neon signs, a scary one and balloon glow. All look good. I like that this $10 is for locals. Thanks again.
