I know a lot of people think that guided tours are lame, but I disagree. I travel a lot, so I don’t mind doing all the basic stuff other tourists do. Guided tours are a great way to get to know a new city when you first visit. You can see the sights, hear the local history, and get a better sense of the place. Basically I always look for a guided tour whenever possible, although in my most recent trip I did my research ahead of time. In fact, the main reason I went to Albuquerque in the first place was to take the guided Breaking Bad tour. Instead of giving insight and history about the city of Albuquerque, this tour was all about visiting the shooting locations for the television series Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. First of all, if you’ve never seen those programs before you are missing out, because they are 2 of the best ever. Second of all, the entire series was filmed in the Albuquerque area, taking full advantage of the panoramic landscapes and jaw-dropping sunsets. The skies over Albuquerque will make you believe God is real, that’s how gorgeous they are. Sadly, even though cannabis is legal in Albuquerque I was not allowed to smoke it on the tour bus. Cannabis really enhances the beauty of those amazing Albuquerque skies, let me tell you. Even without being able to smoke cannabis, the Breaking Bad tour was one of the highlights of my life, and I highly recommend everyone take it when you visit Albuquerque.
