We booked the all day tour and we're very pleased. Picked up at the RV park and taken down to the Alamo for the first stop. Our tour guide, Ron, was knowledgeable, fun, friendly, and helpful. The weather was bad so no river ride but we went to the Texas Culture museum instead. Great substitution. We only had a weekend... More

We boarded in front of the Alamo. With a only a short time in SA, this was the way to see it. Our guide, Leroy was the best! Money well spent.

Most accommodating and polite tour guide ever encountered. Three of us took this Grand Tour on November 12, 2014, and since I have limited mobility getting on and off the bus was quite a challenge. Curry took care of me (helped) every step of the tour, even pushed me around in a wheelchair at the larger Mission on the tour... More

We had a knowledgeable guide that introduced us to several of the main attraction. If you get the "hop pass" you can get on and off to see your items of interest.

We thought we wanted to see it all during our fist trip to San Antonio and booked 2 different tours. our first was the full day of the city. You must be a real history buff for this tour as you were allowed way too much time at each place. Lunch at Buckhorn Saloon was ugh and we went elsewhere.... More

thank you for the review not sure why only rated us with two out of 5 when your comments were: Tour guide and driver were great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and educated us about the history of the town for hours. it was my fault for not knowing logistics or asking plenty of questions before booking. Lesson learned More

Went on this sightseeing tour and found the experience filled with history and destination that I always wanted to see. The narrator was perfect and the Alamo was my top choice. It was exciting to see and best of all was the amazing history that is well preserved in this amazing building. The tour took us to all kinds of... More

Our tour guide was Phil, who seemed very knowledgable and we did see and learn quite a bit...but alas I also know too much about Phil as well, from... More

This is a "don't miss" experience in San Antonio. Our driver and narrator was Leroy, a native of San Antonio and a fountain of information and fun asides. He is definitely a one-of-a-kind, telling us all kinds of historical tidbits as well as a lot of his own background. Made for a fun learning experience. The Hop on Hop Off... More

I've been on many tours in several cities and this tour was good, but it wasn't great. I wished for more narrative, or story telling, from the tour guide who was friendly and seemed like she was from the area. She had some interesting insights but I felt like there were a lot of good stories to tell that were... More
