Excellent tour amiable driver guide, however, check with local vendor for departure times. We almost missed the 'next' bus, thinking we were more than a half hr early.

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.
