The tour guides were very knowledgable, funny and helpful. Especially enjoyed happy hour at the Tower of the Americas at the end of a long hot day.
San Antonio is a very nice place especially seein the Alamo. Unfortunately we were only there for a few hours and ran out of time and didn't get to take our hop on hop off Tour. We definitely recommend taking the tour as it is very hot in San Antonio and to take the tour bus would be a great way of getting all around.
River cruise was wonderful! Tower of the Americas gave a great view of the city! The trolley ride was very nice. Phillip was a very nice and informative driver. I do have one suggestion. There is a lot of construction going on near the Tower of the Americas. The normal trolley stop is right near the construction. The stop should be moved as walking around the construction was 20 minutes and barely gave us any time at the tower.
My trip was great!! But I was a bit upset I paid to upgrade my tour then I find out that the buckhorn was not included, even though that is what I paid for. So they traded the battle of Texas for the buckhorn but only 3 so I had to buy 2 more passes.
We were not really happy with the Trolley tour. I found they were in a hurry to get the tour over with. We took the tour on Sunday and there was only one trolley running. I think I could have gotten all of the tickets cheaper if I would have bought them separately. Very disappointed.
You still have to stand in line for tickets to enter the attraction even though you paid up front very dissatisfied .
Saved a lot of money
Loved this tour. It was so easy to hop on and off at the various stops. Our guide, Leroy, was a wealth of information and funny too. It was well worth the price of the ticket. And we could use the Riverboat Ride and Tower of Americas tickets anytime we wanted to during our stay. Would definitely recommend seeing San Antonio this way. We will do it again!
This worked out exceptionally well the river cruise was fun and the Hop On Hop Off is a great way to see the city
It is a great way to see all the major sights in a city. You can get off at a sight that may interest you and spend as much time as you want and then hop back on the bus when you are done. It makes it easy to see the sights without having to drive through the crowded city and find parking. You can go around as many times as you want in a day. The drivers are all usually very friendly and helpful. You can start at any point on the tour and end at any point as well. You can get a route map of the tour on line and they also have maps on the buses.
Very nice you go at your on pace
The trolley tour was great. Loved Leroy, our tour guide, on the first day. This was a bit confusing to find the point of origination. Although this is a hop-on-hop-off tour, it was not clear that you must begin at the Alamo Plaza location only. It would be nice to have that information beforehand as we traversed a good part of the downtown area seeking the boarding area. It would also be great to have stops posted for pickup. We went to the furthest destinations each of the two days and figured out where we could walk to see other attractions because the trolley runs from 9:30 to 3:30 and circles back every hour for pickup. If you wanted to spend more time at a destination, you waited another hour. The Mission Concepcion was a 30 minute self-guided tour. Glad we got to experience the Missions, but then had to wait another 30 minutes for the trolley to return so we could proceed with our sightseeing.
The boat tour and hop on hop off bus tour were very good. Lots of good history and info provided. Easy to use. Not 5 stars as one bus driver skipped our stop making us wait an extra hour. Viator customer service was excellent...bus company just put you on hold and never came back.
The tour was ok. We had booked this tour ahead of time thinking we were going to go to different areas but actually it went to the same areas as the Trolley tour we did earlier in the trip. Our plans had changed and we were able to switch our tickets for a different day, which was appreciated. I got the impression that this was peak tourist time, which was fine because our wait time was not long. However, the bus driver didn't call out some of the stops along the way so that we could get out to explore. We were able to backtrack once we got out at a different location, but would have been good to stop closer to the destination because it was hot and humid. Again, it would be great to have signs posted for pickup. We needed to redeem our prepaid voucher for tickets and again needed to locate the store front to do that. For anyone thinking of doing the tour in the future, this was at stop 1 alongside the Menger Hotel in Alamo Plaza..
didn't have a lot of time so just rode it straight through.
Th local vendor didn and #39;t have hours posted ANYWHERE in their building. We were told to pick up tickets at the rivercenter mall. Not true. We called the local office several times and received a different closing each time. The driver was late at each stop. Very cheesy narrator. Missed our first day
Enjoyed seeing the town over two days with on and off trolley. Everyone was friendly and informative. Michael did our river cruise and he was funny and entertaining. Great view from the top of the Tower of the Americas.
What a great time and excellent value for the money. My husband and I really enjoyed the tour, the drivers were knowledgeable and entertaining and the activities were awesome.
I had so much fun. My kids enjoyed every minute of it.
Well worth the money. We did not rent a car so this allowed us to see areas away from the Riverwalk.
Good guide. If want for touring different areas not very convient to hop on and off only 1 bus and have to catch the same bus about an hour later. Driver very patient and good guide. Office very difficult to find and worker forgot to give me all the tickets for my admissions. Had to go all the way back a second time to get tickets!
DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS PACKAGE! It was not a bargain at all. It would have been cheaper to have purchased the 3 items individually. BUT THE WORSE THING was the HOP-ON HOP-OFF Trolley. They only have 2 trolleys on a good day and on the day we went, they only had 1 trolley running. So, once you got off, it was at least an hour before the trolley returned. We ended up walking everywhere instead of waiting for the trolley that never came. Enjoyed the River Cruise and Tower of Americas but DO NOT BUY HIS PACKAGE.
I had a great time.
