It is an awesome tour! I and my son enjoyed the River Walk. The Battle For Texas Show was great! And the bus tour covered most interesting places in San Antonio downtown and provided an easy entertaining transportation between places.
I would do that again and highly recommend it to my friends now!

This was a great experience. The kids loved sitting on top and seeing San Antonio from that vantage point.

This was a very nice option as we upgraded to a 2nd day and got the third day also. There were 18 stops which got us close to everything we wanted to see. Because of it being the off season, the wait for the bus was about 15-20 minutes. Every one was friendly and helpful. Great barbeque at Augies.

This is a great way to see San Antonio. We stayed on for the complete loop. Not all stops will interest everyone. The Battle for Texas was very well done and if you take the time to read the displays, the story of this town and the Alamo and Texas is explained very well. Make sure you watch the film at the Alamo for the complete story of what happened here. The Alamo is free. The riverwalk is the 1 highlight by far and should not be missed at night. Stay at Hotels on the riverwalk. The Dury Plaza is terrific!

Great tour and learned a lot about San Antonio. The fight for the Alamo was interesting and informative way to get a better understanding of what had taken place.

It was very informative about the downtown San Antonio area and it was fun riding on top of the double decker bus.

This is our first time to take the tour, we were a little confused regarding the departure point it stated under the Menger hotel. We took the tour after that and it was fun, every stops along the way already printed in the brochure, that's make easier to know where to wait for the bus. The drivers are friendly and funny. I would recommend this tour to my friends, anyone come to San Antonio should take this tour!

Loved the versatility of hopping on and off to see many sites. The Battle of TX experience was a great complement to our visit to the Alamo.
My biggest ( and most frustrating) complaint is still needing a paper trail even though the website states admission can be done via either paper OR electronic!

Bus and river tours are awesome. The Texas Live is very similar to the Alamo tour
