  1. Old Town - Bonus Sightseeing Opportunity   

  2.     Not ready to go home?  Can’t get an afternoon flight?  Why sit around the airport?  For those groups with a flight departing Albuquerque later in the day, we have a terrific way for you to spend the afternoon.  We will provide complimentary transportation from the airport to/from Old Town Albuquerque!  We will even store your bags!

  3.     Old Town was established in 1706 and it was the heart of the Wild West in its day. See Native American artists at work and walk through the historic Plaza which has been under the rule of 5 different countries over the last 300 years!  Poke around in the local stores and historic and cultural sites. This is a real taste of the Southwest! 

  4.     We will have you back at the airport Terminal over an hour before your flight but no later than 4 PM.  If you want to do anything other than Old Town, we can arrange a private charter for your group at a cost of $100 per hour. All private charters will need to be booked prior to June 1.

  5.     We can also offer the Old Town option to groups who have flights arriving in Albuquerque before 11:30 AM on their arrival day.  For operational reasons related to your arrival day, there is a charge of $100 for up to 14 passengers and $200 for groups larger than 14. We will drop you in Old Town by 12 PM and pick you up by 2 PM.  If you want to add this option to your tour package, please do so when you book your reservation with us.  If necessary, we can add this option closer to the summer but it must be booked no later than June 1.
