ABQ Trolley Co’s $10 tours run once a month through the season, and are a great way 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.  The $10 includes tax, plus a free copy of Albuquerque The Magazine.  The next one is on Friday September 16, 2011, at 6:30 pm. 

Tickets remain at time of writing but these discounted $10 seats sell out fast, so it’s wise to buy August Ten Buck Tour tickets online in advance.  

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. Along the way, the narrated tour includes fun Albuquerque trivia and prizes from local businesses.

Tickets are usually available for purchase about one to two weeks before the tour date.

ABQ Trolley Ten Buck Tours

ABQ Trolley Co’s $10 tours run on the fourth Friday and second Sunday of the month through the rest of the 2010 season.

These Albuquerque tours used to be called the Fourth Friday Sunset Tour and the Second Sunday Family Tour. Now they’ve made it a lot easier to remember, by giving all these discounted  Albuquerque trolley tours one name:
the Ten Buck Tour! (Ta da! Sometimes, the simplest solution is the best!)

Whatever you call them, the $10 tours offer more than a 50% discount on their usual adult ticket tour price.

As well as being budget-friendly, the Sunday tours seem especially family-friendly, and the Friday sunset tours more targeted to date night. 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 to hang out with locals on the trip!

Times vary according to which Ten Buck Tour you choose, but 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. Along the way, the narrated tour includes fun Albuquerque trivia and prizes from local businesses.

These discounted $10 seats can sell out, so it’s wise to buy Ten Buck Tour tickets online in advance for the upcoming 2010 dates:

  • September 12
  • September 17
  • October date to be decided, although I guess the Second Sunday and Fourth Friday will be where they usually are;  but there may be seasonal changes for this month and around Balloon Fiesta. Check with their website nearer the time.

Speaking of Balloon Fiesta, tickets are still available NOW for the 2010 ABQ Trolley Glow Tours on October 8 and 9. Tickets cost $40 plus tax and the package includes admission to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and the Chasers’ Club hospitality tent, with food and beverages, and time to watch the balloon glow and fireworks before you leave.

ABQ Trolley Co. tours depart from Plaza San Luis in Old Town. The Balloon Fiesta tours depart from Albuquerque Convention Center.

Take the ABQ Trolley Co. sight-seeing trip for $10 with the Second Sunday Family Tour from now through October. The next one is May 9 – a good idea for Mother’s Day?

The ABQ Trolley Co.’s tour around Albuquerque on the Second Sunday of each month is especially family-friendly, and budget-friendly too, as it’s only $10. That’s more than a 50% discount on their usual adult ticket tour price.

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 to hang out with locals on the trip!

The customized open-air trolley leaves Old Town at 5 pm, and returns at about 6:15 pm, having taken you through Downtown, along Route 66 through Nob Hill, and around Barelas, Tingley Beach and more. Along the way, the narrated tour includes fun Albuquerque trivia and prizes from local businesses.

These special rate $10 Seats can sell out, so you might want to buy tickets online in advance for any of the 2010 Second Sunday Family Tour dates:

  • May 9

  • August 8
  • September 12
  • October date to be decided, although I guess the Second Sunday will be where it usually is;  maybe they change dates for this month, around Balloon Fiesta. Check with their website.

It’s a bit past St. Patrick’s Day, but don’t let that stop you. Here’s an affordable opportunity to take the whole family to a concert of traditional Irish music.

Beoga and Gráda will be performing Friday, March 27, at 8:00pm at the South Broadway Cultural Center. They’ll be joined onstage by performers from the Tri Conaill Academy of Irish Dance New Mexico. The performance is sponsored in part by Culture Ireland.

The inexpensive tickets are just $5.50 for adults and $3 for children (though the SBCC website doesn’t specify an age range for children’s pricing). And that’s for reserved seating! Call 848-1320 for tickets. Major credit cards accepted.

The South Broadway Cultural Center is located at 1025 Broadway SE, Albuquerque.
