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

A great way to get in a run, while touring San Antonio from a perspective you probably couldn't get from another venue (looking at you, double-decker bus)! Our guide was very knowledgeable of SA's history, and led us on a route that - as far as I could tell - touched on all the significant points/routes in downtown San Antonio.... More

Had a blast! Was there for a conference and had enough for a private weekday tour. The tour guides, Tommy & Tina, were fabulous! Even brought us water for our journey. The tour was great, t-shirt included is very cute! I had a great time and learned alot about San Antonio. Would recommend for runners, or those just wanting to... More

We were in town for a Saturday afternoon wedding. Looking for a fun 5K for the morning before the wedding, we found the River City Run. It was easy to register, and the communication from the run team was great - even a weather report by email the morning of the run. It was raining when we woke, but sunny... More

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

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.
