San Antonio Boat and Bus
Lora_P, May 2022
The historical boat tour was fascinating. Our guide was knowledgeable and answered questions easily. We learned a lot and the boat was comfortable. We were on two different buses. One was ideal with a pleasant driver. The other driver was loud and crude. We did not stay on that bus too long. All in all we enjoyed the experience.
The cruise is fun
Amber_H, May 2022
The cruises were really fun but the hop on hop off was not really worth it for us. If we'd been staying more than a day it may have been. But i was really hoping to see some sights that we would not otherwise see from the tour itself because we were only there for roughly 36 hrs. Unfortunately that was not really the case from the double decker tour. We did learn some interesting facts on both tours.
Relaxing and informative
Richard_T, May 2022
Excellent boat captain! Full of useful info with some humour thrown in. Great photo opportunities and she allowed us a few minutes to get just the right pic to send back to the UK
Great for a day.
Sue_H, May 2022
It was great. Although the bus had some loudspeaker issues, they did the best they could. Very friendly and helpful. The boat ride was fun too.
One day in San Antonio

Don’t waste your time or money And they charged my card TWICE and NO ONE TO TALK TO ABOUT THE ISSUE. Have called 3 times and EACH time they put me on hold and hung up. RIDICULOUS!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME
Good way to learn about City
Sunshine_K, Mar 2022
Fun, wanted to hear more about city before going exploring. Boat was a pleasant ride would have done at night and bus first thing. Great experience with family
I liked the riverwalk...
Felecia_S, Mar 2022
I liked the riverwalk part of the tour, not so much the bus 😊the lady said it was her first day to drive the bus and it was very uninteresting trip. But the riverwalk part more than made up for the actual bus. I travel the world and I have to say that bus tour was the very least of my favorites. But not her fault as it was the first time she drove the bus. I would still give you guys a great thumbs up as the overall experience was superb.
