The BaD tour lasts for three and a half hours and is narrated as the trolley company takes fans to locations where Breaking Bad is filmed. The Emmy-winning series is filmed in several locations in Albuquerque. Fans get to see Albuquerque on an open-air trolley, as characters Walter White and Jesse Pinkman would see it.

 As part of the premiere of Season 5 of the popular TV show, the BaD tour starts on July 15th at 4:00pm and ends at 9:00 p.m. after a private viewing party of the Season 5 premiere. The show will be screened at the Back Alley Brew Pub inside JC's New York Pizza Department in downtown Albuquerque.

Stops on the tour include Walter White's house; Jesse Pinkman's house; The Car Wash; The Laundry; Saul Goodman's law office; Tuco's hideout; The Railyards; The Crossroads Motel; Los Pollos Hermanos and more.

The tour also includes a dinner and guests can win prizes from local Albuquerque businesses by participating in Breaking Bad trivia.

Tickets for the tour went on sale on July 1st at $60 each. The tour currently only has three dates; July 15, July 22 and July 29. However, due to its popularity, every tour date is sold out on the 34-seat trolley.

The company is giving people the opportunity to be placed on a waiting list in case there are any cancellations. Those who are interested can email  info@abqtrolley.com with their name, requested tour date, and number of seats wanted.

A note on ABQ Trolley Co.'s website says that there are no tours planned outside of July, but due to the high request, they may add more tours throughout the season. To receive updates on further tour information, subscribe to their email newsletter.

The AMC hit series Breaking Bad follows Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher who turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). The much anticipated fifth season of the show starts Sunday, July 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
