During the Labor Day weekend, I took a trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico to spend some time with my boyfriend who was there for work. I don’t know about you, but the first thing that comes to mind when I think of New Mexico is Breaking Bad. Prior to my trip, I researched tours online and surely enough there was a few. We decided to Book via BreakingBadRvTours.com and I have to tell you it was one of the best tours I have ever taken.
The cost is $65 and well worth it. (They also donate $5 of each booking to Healthcare for the homeless to help prevent Substance abuse) The tour lasts close to 3 hrs. and you visit about 17 of the most popular film locations of Breaking Bad Seasons 1-5. Have a seat, grab some Funyuns and enjoy my photo diary as I take you on a Breaking Bad journey.
Your tour is filled with about 12 people and you ride in an RV that’s the same make and year as the one in the show. The inside is meant to look like Jesse and Walt’s RV plus is decorated with fun photos and duplicate props from the show.
As you visit each location the tour guides Frank Sandoval (who’s an actor, and was also an extra on the show) and his wife do trivia, give you some blue rock candy and play clips of the show on a TV screen, so it makes it pretty cool watching a scene and being on the location of those scenes at the same time. We started out by visiting Jesse’s house. Pretty cool huh?
We were then off to “Los Pollos Hermanos” A.K.A. Twisters. This chain of restaurants actually sells Mexican food and the best breakfast burrito I’ve ever had. You actually get about 15 minutes to grab some food and take some photos. Even though it’s name is Twisters, they Keep some “Los Pollos Hermanos” Art on the walls and behind the counter.
We quickly passed by the Motel Jesse stayed at. If you want to stay here in the actual room they used to film, you can do so for about $60. I say well worth it don’t you?
Need a place to live? What about Jesse and Jane’s townhome? It’s available for Rent!
The RV needed a quick wash so what better place than here! We got to spend about 15 minutes to hang out. The tour guides even “cooked” some blue meth.
Need a cigarette while pregnant? Why not this location?
One of the craziest scene of all
Then the place we were all waiting for (drum roll) Walter White’s Home.The lady that lives here was extremely nice! She came out hugged the tour guides and took photos with us. They actually have “THE POOL” in the backyard. We couldn’t see it but she told us.
Finally The Laundromat where the magic happened. According to Frank all the employees you see on the show were actual employees at this Laundromat.
The Breaking Bad tour by BreakingBadRvTours.com was AMAZING. If you are a fan of the show you will want to come home and watch the series all over again and if you are just getting into Breaking Bad well you will want to come home and watch the series.
If you are in Albuquerque area this is a must do! Just be careful you don’t keep asking people around town to “SAY MY NAME”.
