    This was a fantastic excursion! Kevin and Liz were very informative and the ride great! The taco stop was delicious and the German neighborhood spectacular. Everyone should take a ride in this side car. You’ll love it!

    If We could leave 100 stars we would. Hands down the first thing you should do in San Antonio. Liz and Kevin picked us up at the hotel and we’re automatically the coolest people. We stopped at an awesome taco spot for amazziinnggg tacos,(a cool authentic/ cool/hip place we would never have known to go to,) at the beginning of our journey. They took us all over and showed us all different parts of the city, and as they are born and raised locals, they knew the good stuff! The art everywhere was unbelievable. Plus, the actual Vespa-sidecars are so awesome, people were waving to us as we drove by! Lol. Definitely check it out!!!!!!
    Response from Host, Jul 2021
    Thank you. Your vibe was equally as warming. Cheers and here’s to tacos!!!
    A memorable tour for sure!

    This is a really unique way to see the city of San Antonio! We went early in the morning so the sudden wasn’t too hot and with the wind blowing in our hair, it was an enjoyable morning.
    Response from Host, Jul 2021

    Julie_C, Apr 2021
    Thank you Liz and Kevin!! This adventure was definitely the highlight of our trip! Such a unique way to see the beauty and charm of San Antonio while soaking in a little sun on our faces. I was a little unsure at first but Kevin was so quick and responsive with my questions and really put me at ease! We enjoyed getting to know a little about each other and the tacos were a yummy snack! We also appreciated the helpful restaurant and entertainment recommendations! They were a hit! We couldn’t wait to get home and share the awesome experience with our family! Thanks for the memories guys!!

    Thank you Julie. We truly enjoyed showing y’all around the town.
    Too Limited
    Arthur_J, Apr 2021
    This tour was limited at best. We were told one pick up location but the drivers (arrived late) and came to another side of the hotel. The tour started almost 30 minutes late. You are dependent on the knowledge of the driver to whom you are assigned. My driver had almost no information to provide. What little information he had was often incorrect. My husbands’ driver only talked about the the few things he seemed to be interested in and also provided limited information. We drove around for a short time, stopped for a quick lunch (one taco and very bad choices for drinks) and in less than an hour we were back to our hotel. In the pictures we saw the riders were wearing safety helmets We were not offered helmets. At one point, while driving though a parking garage to look at the public art, a truck began to pull out of his parking space. I had to yell out to my driver (Hank) to alert him - clearly the driver of the truck couldn’t see us so low to the ground. The drivers should be provided a script with information to share and not left to ramble on and on about whatever they feel like sharing. It seemed like a fun trip to get an overview of San Antonio but in the end it was $100 for a quick ride and a taco.

    Vince_P, Nov 2020
    Amazing Trip. Kevin and Rafa are so much fun. Was definitely a highlight for us on our trip to SA. If you want a fun trip that shows you the sights in a fun vehicle this is the trip for you. The sidecars allow you to feel the city... Kevin is so knowledgeable. All in all an outstanding tour.
    Response from Host, Nov 2020
    Thank you! We are glad you had a blast in our Sidecars.
    Great Time
    Vince_P, Nov 2020
    Seeing all the sights...murals, buildings, Pearl...etc... obviously riding in the sidecar was such an amazing experience. Both of the guides had amazing personalities and were engaging. Keep sharing personal experiences and local knowledge.
    Response from Host, Nov 2020
    Thank you Vince! It was our pleasure to be able to help you soak up the city.
    History & Family. Gotta live it
    Edward_S, Oct 2020
    I loved this tour!! Sun on my face, wind in my hair soaking up all the beauty of San Antonio TX. Kevin and his father are so friendly and welcoming. They have a long, strong family history in San Antonio. It was like living the history through them. I really enjoyed our little "picnic" along the way.
