It was just perfect for 12 ladies. Enjoyed the drivers, etc, etc. The drivers were very informative and very nice and friendly. Loved San Antonio.
It is an excellent option if you want to cover the highlights of San Antonio and at your own pace. You can choose to hop off at your desired sights.
The downside is sometimes the wait for the shuttle can be rather unpredictable so.. It can be quite a wait.
an enjoyable trip with lots of local and historical info.
Enjoyed it very much, especially our gie
We have taken several hop-on hop-off trolley tours in the past and this was by far the worst. The trolley only came by every 45 minutes, which wasted a lot of time, and one time did not come at all. It turned out that one of the two trolleys in service had broken down and we were left to walk home. The next day the single trolley ran a 1 hour timetable, resulting in even longer waits. I would not recommend this trolley.
We were disappointed with this trip. Some of the stop off points were closed so we couldn't visit and the buses were not as frequent as we would have liked.
Seats uncomfortable and very noisy motor - hard to hear driver.
