We have taken many sightseeing tours all around the world. Our driver Robert B. was one of the greatest we have ever had. Our system was not working properly so he had to narrate the tour. He did a great job giving us the details. He kept us laughing. He has a great personality for his job. I could tell... More

We did this tour after seeing the Alamo. It gives a good overview of the downtown attractions. We enjoyed the cathedral and governors mansion stops. Most of the historic sights are walkable if you are up for it. With kids this might be better and they would be excited to sit upstairs. Some of the stops were more shopping or... More

First trip to San Antonio, so this was a good way to see the most famous of the attractions in the area of the Alamo. You can hop off and sightsee at numerous points of interest and then hop back on another bus - they stop every 15 minutes. Take note, when buying tickets, if you do not buy THE... More

We had a couple of great tour guides and a couple that just drove the bus. I would definitely recommend this for anyone traveling with young kids. My boys loved the double decker bus and it was easy to hop on and off to the different locations throughout the city. My only complaint is that it stopped running at 5:00pm.

We did a package that included 48 hours and received a third day free. Since we rode to San Antonio on the Amtrak, we chose not to get a rental car. This mode of transport was the best for our four day stay. We had a driver named Robert who was the best all around information provider and had a... More

We did the package that included 48 hours and they gave us third day free. We used this as our transportation around the hot spots of the city for tourists. A shout out to Robert (our favorite driver). He was knowledgeable about the city and had a great sense of humor. The first day we just rode the loop to... More

It cost us 59$ for an hour ride in the city. There is not much to see. Your best is to go walk downtown close to ALamo and walk on the riverside. This is what you will see best of San Antonio. Tour was secure and your ticket is good for 24 hours but tour stops at 5h30 pm. So... More
