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.

An excellent way to see all the sights of the City. The tour guides were very knowledgeable of the history of the city and were very entertaining with their narratives.

Seeing sites this way is the best way to see what you want to see. However A/C in all buses could be better.

We did this on July 4th 2017. I enjoyed the tour but was very frustrated at first because we couldn't find where to start the tour. Signs are not posted very well in San Antonio Market Square area for the Hop On Hop Off. If it wasn't for a kind gentleman who asked if I needed help I would have gone back to my hotel and given up!

Too noisy

The area is so small the hop on/off isn't really necessary. A little pricey for what you get. Also was disappointed I couldn't buy the boat tour online the same day.

The waiting time for the buses was too long, over 30 minutes on that day and the buses were to crowded so that I had to stand several times.

could not find where the bus picks up. Had to walk far to find it.

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.
