San Antonio

Your two-day trolley pass makes exploring San Antonio on your own a breeze. Listen to live narration about the city's colorful history and top sights, hopping on and off at the stops as you wish (see Itinerary for a complete list of stops).

At your leisure, see the famous Alamo — where Texas colonists fought bravely against Santa Anna's Mexican troops — and the San Fernando Cathedral, where some of those heroes are laid to rest. Explore the interactive exhibits at the Institute of Texan Cultures, and visit Mission Concepcion, the oldest unrestored stone church in America. Shop for Mexican wares at Market Square (El Mercado), and browse the crafts at the downtown arts community of La Villita.

Your package also includes an open-air riverboat cruise along the San Antonio River with views of lush greenery and quaint cafes and boutiques. For spectacular city views, take advantage of your admission to the Tower of the Americas observation deck. Ride a glass elevator up 500 feet (152 meters) to the deck for sensational photo opportunities, and enjoy a thrilling tour of Texas at the tower's 4D theater ride.

Upgrade with Double-Decker Bus Tour:

See more of what makes San Antonio special by upgrading to include a 50-minute double-decker bus tour of the city and admission to two more museums. Take in panoramic views of the city from the upper deck of your comfortable bus as your guide tells you more about sights including The Alamo, La Villita and the movie palace called the Aztec Theatre. Pass the Mexican area of Market Square (El Mercado) and the lively shopping and dining area on the banks of the San Antonio River known as the San Antonio River Walk.

Your upgrade also gives you access to the Buckhorn Museum, a staggering collection of historical Texas artifacts, and the Texas Ranger Museum, an overview of the famous law enforcement agency featuring a recreation of old San Antonio.

Customer Reviews

4 star rating: Recommended July 2014

For me and my kids, getting a guided tour was much better than if we'd tried to find those sights all by ourselves. Being able to get on and off the bus at will (for two days, if we'd had the time) was great! We loved the boat ride on the canal. Find a guide at the mission(s) to tell you the history. Each bus driver adds their own personality to the tour, so hopefully you'll get a good one.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2014

It was a great tour. I am so happy that I purchased it. My husband and I had a great time. The tour guide was awesome. The water was greatly appreciated. The only complaint that I had was the timeliness. The tour was a little off schedule. But we understood that sometimes those things happen.
