Must have been up the tram over a dozen times. They recently replaced the cars to spiffy new ones. Every visitor we take up is impressed. The views are awesome, hiking at the top is top notch. When the new restaurant is finished it will be even better....a complete day or half day adventure. Winter can be a good time... More

We loved this whole experience. Nice trip to the top. We believe it was a bit pricey at $25 per person. Not much to do at the top. Yet their restaurant was closed for construction. WAY TOO many people they let on the tram at one time. Almost no where to go.

If you want up high the mountains with a wonderful view you should drive the tram. You get some history and informations during 30 minutes drive. You can hike down or up a trail and then use the tram. Relax and have some food at the restaurant up there. The other side of the mountain is for skiing during winter... More

What a wonderful experience. The clan (ages 3-60+) loved it. Think the car operator (Gosh wish I took his name- african american gentleman) deserves a raise. He has a great sense of humour, very professional and obviously loves his job. It's cold up at the top and just keep in mind at this time there are no food or drink... More

I saw the Sandia Peak Tramway listed at the top of most "must do" lists in Albuquerque and now I see why. It's an incredible experience. The tram ride is only about 15 minutes to the top but the views along the way are amazing. You'll get plenty of 360 degree photos from the tram car but the views at... More

Fantastic outing for those who like something out of the ordinary! You won't find a better view of the city or the mountains from anywhere else in Albuquerque and the sunsets are spectacular!! You can even get a bite to eat or enjoy a nice cocktail at either the bottom or top. Be sure to take your camera!!

provides an excellent view of the city and the surrounding countryside. Signage to find it was really good-not something we found with everything in ABQ.

We woke up to a little bit of snow and cloudy skies on the morning we wanted to take the tram to the top of Sandia Peak. But decided to do it anyway. We drove to the tramway and couldn't see the top of the mountain because of low clouds. Climbed on the tram and slowly headed to the top.... More
