A must-do for anyone visiting San Antonio! Even though I have visited SA many times, our tour guide Johnna introduced our group to tons of new tidbits and historical foibles about this old Texas town.

Excellent tour that allows you to see the most amazing sights in SA while getting your workout in. Kris & Tina were awesome guides. They were both very knowledgeable, enthusiastic & full of energy. I'd highly recommend River City Run for an innovative tour.

I discovered River City Run looking for a 5K to run while I was in town for a conference. What a great way to see a city! The tour guides were fantastic and gave us a lot of great information about San Antonio. The run was structured that we stopped relatively often to learn more about different sites or attractions--people... More

Wonderful tour with Lance and Jonna; their enthusiasm for San Antonio was contagious. Just the right amount of detail, and stops that were short enough to make getting started again easy. Can't recommend it enough.

This was a very fun run. This is not a race, so even the youngsters could join in the fun. I enjoyed learning about the city.

My husband and I scheduled a 10k run tour during our short weekend getaway to San Antonio. Our run with Chris did not disappoint. There were only 3 of us doing the 10k run.

We had an awesome tour on Sat 3/18. The guides were knowledgeable, professional, and led a well routed tour. We hit the main tourist highlights of downtown in about 90minutes. Pace was around 10min/mile, and one guide stayed at the front with another at the back so no one was left behind. There's two sections with a longer run (~0.5mile),... More
