Need more busses
Diane_W, Jul 2023
River cruise and tower was great. Hop on and off bus - needs more busses on route. Too long to wait to be picked up at each stop. Wasted a lot of extra time just waiting on the bus. And in the heat and with all the construction areas feel more buses would be beneficial.
Vacation of a lifetime
Toni_O, Jun 2023
The Tower of Americas was truly an incredible experience. Love seeing Texas from a far. San Antonio is a great place to visit. Everyone is so friendly and the place is so clean.
Hop-on Hop-off does not come as advertised.
MaryEllen_B, Jun 2023
Great bargain with the combo if you plan to do the boat ride and tower also. But the Hop-on Hop-off buses do not run like they advertise. Had to wait over 45 one time. They are not every 20 minutes, but closer to every 30-45 minutes.
First time San Antonio
David_T, May 2023
Loved the bus tour, Tower of America's and boat ride. First time to San Antonio people in San Antonio very friendly and helpful. Very clean city.
Getting around San Antonio
Ralph_H, May 2023
This threesome gives a great over view of San Antonio. Used the hop on off bus to get around town to the sights we wanted to visit, the bus drivers were informative and good sources of information about the city.
Voucher Redemption warning
Laszlo_H, Apr 2023
More explanation could have been shared during the voucher/receiving tickets. I picked my tickets at the end of the day one hour prior to the buses stopping. The customer service agent failed to tell me the first day started when picking up tickets even though I explained that I will be starting the next day. This was resolved when I returned the next day but could have been resolved when I originally picked up the tickets.
Missed half the stops
Amanda_S, Apr 2023
Missed half of the bus stops due to construction. Ok but you knew it was on and you know the area so either find an alternative route or charge half the price!
Great tour, highly recommend
Althea_S, Apr 2023
Everything was good, our family enjoyed all the tours We would highly recommend all the tours, and the price for the package is good
Wet time
Sharron_M, Apr 2023
Was great until I got knocked into the river. Don't recommend it for people who can not walk far.All the drivers we had were great and knowledgeable, learned alot.
Enjoying San Antonio
Robert_F, Apr 2023
Excellent way to enjoy a tour of the San Antonio riverwalk. Taking in all the sights with a very good guide.
Evening tour
Rod_S, Apr 2023
Very informative and great river host. Evening tour is the way to go. Colleen shared such great great stories and interesting points along the way.
Family Vacation to San Antonio
All_A, Mar 2023
This Pass was well worth it. The family enjoyed taking in the sights and we got off at the Art Museum and it was Family Day free admission which was a welcoming surprise. At the Tower of the Americas stop there was a fun children's park which we all enjoyed. The walk from the stop to the Tower of the Americas is a short walk. The River Walk Cruise was okay. I had taken it years ago and enjoyed it thoroughly but this one did not cover as much territory as the one I had taken. I was not impressed with the tour at all.
Fun River Walk Cruise
Gail_R, Mar 2023
Loved the river walk cruise. Great narrative, interesting sights. Lots of families during spring break.
Cheaper to do seperately especially if you have military ID
Jo_S, Mar 2023
River cruise was great and the driver was funny and knowledgeable. The bus tour depended on the guide, we took two buses before deciding we would rather walk, one bus was great and one was aweful. ONE BUS WAS FILLED WITH THE SMELL OF DIESEL AND THE AIRCON AND SPEAKERS DIDN'T WORK THE BUS DRIVER SAID SHE WASN'T FROM HERE AND DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO GET TO ONE OF THE DESTINATIONS.
Beautiful city
Kristin_C, Feb 2023
Everyone was very friendly and the lines moved quickly. The river was simply gorgeous at night and the tour guide very informative.
Bus Tour Has Some Improving To Do
Aretha_B, Feb 2023
The drivers on the tour bus and boat ride were very friendly and helpful. However, on several tours, I had to wait over 45 minutes at the bus stop before the bus arrived. During my visit, it was extremely cold and to have to wait more than the tour advertised (20-30 minutes between pick ups) was very unpleasant.
Great way to explore the city
Kari_U, Feb 2023
It was a great way to experience San Antonio. We loved the flexibility of the package. We were able to see the city on more than just one day.
Fun weekend
kristi_s, Feb 2023
Was a good way to get the feel of the area and what we should do and where we should go. Found out most everything is within walking distance even though the bus route takes awhile. Helped to get our bearings.
Great Experience
Connie_H, Jan 2023
Joe and Captain K did a great job. The boat captains were great also but I didn’t catch their names. I really liked the ride at night.
So easy. Loved it
Constance_Z, Dec 2022
