What You Can Expect

City Sightseeing San Antonio Hop-On Hop-Off City Tour

See famous sights including the Alamo

Make your own way to the visitor center of San Antonio to board the open-top, double-decker bus, or simply hop on at any of the 12 stops around the city.

The Alamo is perhaps number one of the top attractions that you can visit. Founded by Spanish missionaries in the late 1700s and known then as Mission San Antonio de Valero, the Alamo was the site of a famous battle that marked the end of the Texas Revolution in 1836. Legendary people including Davey Crockett, Jim Bowie and Colonel Travis fought in that bloody battle.

Near the Alamo, you can walk to the San Antonio River Walk, a network of walking paths along the river that are lined with shops, art galleries and great restaurants.

Your bus passes a number of outdoor markets and stops at HemisFair Park, a delightful urban park that is home to the Tower of the Americas, which was constructed for the 1968 World's Fair and stands 750 feet (229 meters) tall. Explore the King William Historic District, wander down St Mary’s Street and more.

If you like, visit the historic Cathedral of San Fernando, built in 1734 by Spanish settlers from the Canary Islands, and the burial site for many soldiers that perished in the Battle of the Alamo.

From the bus, enjoy clear views of the city and recorded commentary that describes the sites you pass. A full list of stops can be found in the Itinerary section below.

Choose either a 24-hour or 48-hour ticket and tour the city at your own pace. Tickets include a map of the route and list of sites.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Excellent deal. Utilized the 2 day deal. The bus was easy to get and once we identified the places where it stopped. There's lots of them. The buses run often and we never had to wait more than 15 minutes to catch another. Note that the buses come in a variety of colors - just watch the signage on the bus to be sure you get on the right one or ask the drivers who were all very helpful. Most of the guides on the bus were very informative and humorous. Learned a lot about San Antonio. Would recommend this service to anyone for it's ease and affordability.

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.

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.

We enjoyed it. Our first driver was the most informative. The other drivers just played the tape. But we enjoyed it and it was certainly a convenience.
