Nice way to get around
Letichia_H
, Jun 2022
If you look at this as a bus ride, then you won’t be disappointed at all. Comfortable and cool, my daughter and I first rode the entire tour just to get acquainted with the area and learn about San Antonio. I’d say the information given was just ok. We then used the hop on and hop off bus the next day to go to the marketplace as well as to the Tower. Those guides (3 total including the one from the day before) were much more animated that go round and different. Our hotel was right next to the Alamo so we walked to everything else we wanted to see and honestly could have probably walked to these places but again you can’t beat the ride in this heat. My daughter and I did get to do the boat cruise at night. Beautiful! We spent maybe ten minutes on the Tower’s observation deck and that 4D ride could have been totally skipped in my opinion. Overall, good tour. Giving 4 stars because of the cost given the bus ride was as much as the tours combined.

Weren't any. Couldn't figure out how the hop on hop off worked. Tower food too expensive. I didn't like that I couldn't use my voucher at the river cruise and had to go somewhere else to get a real ticket

Horrible bus experience
Wendy_E
, Nov 2021
They detour their several stops and those cannot be accessed. The speakers on the top of the bus did not work and advised to sit towards the front but could no hear in that location either. Due to detours, several stops are mere feet away from each other. Horrible experience. Only rode bus 1 day and 1 time. Better off just walking around downtown.

Needs more history, less restaurants
Michael_D

Not hearing the narration in the back of the bus (driver says he's been complaining about those speakers), terrible ride in the back of the bus, being dropped off 3 or more blocks from some of the the advertised venus, not enough history, and too many restaurants being talked about.

The San Antonio River Walk Cruise, 3-Day Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Pass and Tower of the Americas was an especially good value during our two day stay in San Antonio. We took our River Walk cruise at dusk and the lights and reflections on the River were beautiful! We also enjoyed the views at the top of the Tower of the Americas and the 4-D movie ride. We had a very entertaining bus driver on the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus who pointed out the highlights of the route on the bus loop. This was a great and inexpensive way to see the downtown area.

The bus made it very convenient to get around when hitting different destinations on its route, and learn a little history of the area at the same time. Some of the stops were not clearly marked, but you cannot miss that double decker bus when you see it turn the corner. The river cruise was beautiful at night, just make sure to go during the week, it has a tendency to get packed on the weekends. As for the Tower, the view and dinner was excellent. Highly recommend the package if you don't have a car and want to see many of the sites.

Enjoyed San Antonio Riverwalk
Julia_S
, Apr 2021
I rode the hop-on-hop-off bus twice to get a better impression of San Antonio. It was fun riding in the open air bus with the beautiful sunny weather. The boat ride was also nice, but a little short. I also went to Towers of America - beautiful waterfalls on their grounds, but the view from the Tower was not as impressive. I find walking the Riverwalk itself is both peaceful and serene.

Bus drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. Only negative is that the buses stop running quite early.
