Paul, our tour guide was terrific. We rode to areas I probably would not have discovered on my own for a long time. Great to learn about Albuquerque’s history and to ride a lovely e bike. I highly recommend this tour to visitors and reside.

Our guide, Paul, was so friendly and provided lots of good information about the history as well as current culture of Albuquerque. Thr e-bikes we're easy to use and we were able to see much of the city!
