I'm a pretty active person and when I saw this run it looked like fun. I was not disappointed! Was able to learn a ton about San Antonio (I had no idea there was so much history here!) while getting my sweat on. Pace is super reasonable for all running types, the owners/creators of the group were wonderful and very... More

This tour was awesome! I am on the slower side and was able to keep up with no problem. The hardest part for me was the heat and the stopping and starting. If you are not a runner this could be a bit difficult though the two guides are very good about having one in the front and one in... More

We had a great time on our tour. Our two kids, ages 7 & 9, really enjoyed it and was able to keep up with the group. There are plenty of stops and you get a really nice dri fit T-shirt at the end. Highly recommend this group.

This a great way to learn some history and see the San Antonio area. The total run is just over 3 miles however there are many stops along the way. During the stops, the guides offer the historical significance of the buildings or area. The youngest in our group was probably around 8 and the oldest probably in the upper... More

Having lived in TX for 10 years and never been to San Antonio, this was a fantastic way to get introduced to the city and get a fantastic workout. The pace was fast for me (beginning runner) but was able to keep up. The guides are knowledgeable and I learned a lot about the city, the river, and Lance and... More

The run was great. There were a lot of sites visited that I would not have known about. Well worth the money. I will do this again.

This is an awesome tour and we really wished we could have done this at the beginning of our trip so we could take better advantage of things to do in SA! Tina was great and very knowledgable.

The two tour gents, Kelly and Lance, did a wonderful job of guiding us as we ran from location to location at an easy pace and because we stopped for various sights, this Run-Tour was fantastic. If you are in San Antonio over a weekend, you are a runner, and you would also like an excellent tour, this is for... More

Enjoyed the River City Run the morning of Saturday, May 23. Not only did we get in a 3 mile run, but Lance and Jonna ( sorry if her name is misspelled) provided some insight of things to do off of the River Walk. We would not have known of these things if we had not done this run. Highly... More
