Great way to see the sights of San Antonio at minimum cost. Trolleys ran on time and guides were very informative. It allows you to take your time at each stop.
A few more trolleys during the prime portion of the day would be helpful--
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
