Take the river boat tour and learn all about the history and heritage of the San Antonio River. From the Alamo to the Lone Star State the loval cruise offers loads of information that will help you appreciate what the state is all about.

One of the symbols of the city of San Antonio. The riverwalk is an idyllic image of the city. You can not lost the opportunity to visit it.

A nice way to spend a few hours and find a good place to sit for eats and/or drinks. Find a restaurant by number of people enjoying themselves there, not by recommendation of salesperson for a property. Take the river cruise. It is 30 minutes and worth the $8 you'll spend. Overall, a great evening of afternoon.

My wife is not crazy about boats but these were big enough that she felt safe and the guides were great, they could tell you about any of the building that we saw. They could also tell us good spots to see after we got out of the boats so we didn't waste a lot of time looking. This is... More

The San Antonio river in town is a canal ride, and is nice but it is in close quarters with the crowd walking the sidewalks alongside the canal. The boats can be very crowded in the evenings but their movement provides at least a bit of a water breeze. It also provides an overview of the various restaurants you may... More

Who can resist a meandering river to walk by? Even though it is concrete sided and for flood control, it is a very pleasant walk, with plenty of shade. We took advantage of several restaurants, a barge tour and general walking around. It's a busy and spirited place to be. Just sitting at a table and people watching is great!... More
