Overview

Explore San Antonio’s top attractions and landmarks at your own pace on a convenient hop-on-hop-off tour. Choose from a 24- or 48-hour ticket aboard the double-decker bus that makes 12 stops around the city. Get unobstructed views of the Alamo, Hemisfair Park, and Tower of the Americas from the top deck, and listen to audio commentary that reveals lesser-known information.  

What to Expect

Meet the open-top, double-decker bus at the visitor center or any of the 12 stops around San Antonio at the time of your choice, and begin your tour. Hop off the bus at the stops of your choice as the tour winds around the city.

Plan a stop at the Alamo, one of the top attractions in San Antonio and the site of a famous battle that marked the end of the Texas Revolution in 1836. Nearby, is the San Antonio River Walk, a network of paths along the river that are lined with shops, art galleries, and restaurants.

Another popular stop is Hemisfair Park, home to the Tower of the Americas which was constructed for the 1968 World’s Fair. From here, explore the King William Historic District and wander down St. Mary’s Street. Then, hop back on the bus and for a visit to the historic Cathedral of San Fernando, the burial site for soldiers in the Battle of the Alamo.

On board the bus is recorded commentary that describes each site you pass. Tickets include a map and route of each of the sites so you can plan your day.

Buses are every 20 minutes so you can pretty much time when the next bus will be by. We bought our tickets online because they were less expensive. I highly recommend. Buses run rain or shine!
