I called yesterday to see there were any tours today, and even though there wasn't one scheduled, Tina worked with me not only to schedule one for me but also to extend the distance to get my long run in! Tina was a great guide and I definitely enjoyed seeing the different sites in nice short period of time. And... More

Fun way to get a workout in when traveling to San Antonio. I enjoyed this very much and will do it again next time I am in SA.

Venessa and Kelly were awesome guides! I had a great time and highly recommend River City Run! Instead of just walking around seeing the sights, have fun doing it by running to each site and learning fascinating information about each one.

This was my favorite part of our San Antonio visit. Our guides were friendly, fun and SO knowledgeable. It was very relaxed. After the tour I knew exactly what I did and did not want to do during my trip.

First of all, what a great way to see the downtown and get a bit of exercise in all at the same time. Our tour leader, Tina, was wonderful, super friendly, and welcoming. The experience of making a reservation and paying for it was super easy. We showed up about 10 minutes early, right in front of the Alamo, as... More

Lance was our tour guide and did a great job leading us through downtown San Antonio! We lucked out with good weather for December. I would highly recommend this tour on the front end of your trip/time in SA. There will be several points of interest worth visiting that you may not have known about beforehand. All in it was...

I did the River City Run tour on November 15th and absolutely loved it. I was a bit hesitant to sign up because I'm a slow runner but besides falling a bit behind on the longer stretches, I kept up. Lance was very informative and his love for the city is obvious. He took pictures of the group along the... More

My husband and I were in town for most of 5 days, and Saturday was our last. We decided to go on one last tour before we left with the River City Run and I am SO glad we did!! We saw several things we had missed during our previous day and Johnna and Lance were great! I was a... More

Had a great time on the run Saturday morning with Lance and Johnna, they were great guides. Great way to see the city before it gets going, even if it was busier than normal for a Saturday morning. I'm only at the halfway point of C25k training, and found the pace to be more than comfortable, even on the couple... More
