What You Can Expect

San Antonio Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour, River Cruise, and Tower of the Americas Admission

San Antonio

Listen to live narration about the city's colorful history and top sights, hopping on and off at the stops as you wish with your two-day San Antonio trolley pass. It makes exploring the city on your own enjoyable because you can do it all at your preferred pace. (See Itinerary below for a complete list of hop-on, hop-off stops.)

For example, you might take your time exploring the famous Alamo, where Texas colonists fought bravely against Santa Anna's Mexican troops, as well as the San Fernando Cathedral, where you can pay respects to some of the heroes who are laid to rest there. Admire the crafts at the downtown arts community of La Villita, and have fun shopping for Mexican wares at Market Square (El Mercado).

This combo package includes an open-air riverboat cruise along the San Antonio River. Still more: Ride a glass elevator up 500 feet (152 meters) to the observation deck of the Tower of the Americas, and enjoy a nifty tour of Texas at the tower's exciting 4D theater ride.

Upgrade with Double-Decker Bus Tour:

Explore San Antonio in depth with a great sightseeing upgrade that includes admission to two more museums, as well as a 50-minute double-decker bus tour. A knowledgeable guide will share insight about such key attractions as The Alamo and La Villita. Along the way, see the Mexican area of Market Square (El Mercado) and the San Antonio River Walk, one of the most popular attractions in all of Texas.

The two interesting museums included in your upgrade are the Texas Ranger Museum, an overview of the famous law enforcement agency, and Buckhorn Museum, which features an impressive collection of historic Texas artifacts.
