We have been to San Antonio numerous times. During this trip during the 4th of July wknd we said we would NOT go to the River Walk because of the crowds. We took this tour through a variety of areas including the River Walk and discovered that 8:30 - 10:00'ish is the BEST time of day to be there. This... More

This was a great way to see a large number of sights that I hasn't even heard of before going on the tour...and getting to do it while running was amazing! I brought my 6 year old son along, and although he can run, this was his longest challenge yet. The tour guides were both very supportive (Tony and Lance),... More

You could ride a boat or a horse-drawn carriage or you could do something really different and fun and run through history. The guides love their city and it shows throughout as they beam with pride along each stop as they tell snippets of San Antonio history along every step. Do this!

Had a wonderful time w/my husband doing the run this morning! I'm almost 5 months pregnant and never felt like I needed to hurry or catch up to the others. One of the tour leaders, Vanessa, was really nice and stayed w/us at the slower paces. Tommy was very knowledgeable and I learned facts even after living in Texas all... More

Great way to start the morning. Been to San Antonio many times and this has been the best way to see the river walk area. Got to see familiar sites as well as new ones. Run tour lets you go into a couple interesting buildings that you don't see on boat or horse tours. There were different levels of runners... More

Lance and Johnna were great guides. We had a blast jogging around downtown San Antonio learning about all the significant sites.

We had a fantastic time this morning on our River City Run tour. What a great idea! Our guides knew their San Antonio history very well. They were charming and fun. We learned much and explored all over downtown. What a great intro to the city. And... we got some lovely exercise at the same time. It seems that you... More

I am happy that I was able to experience my first running tour! Honestly, I wasn't sure if I was going to do it or not. I arrived at the meeting point too early...it was raining, and windy! But what a great surprise, the running tour wasn't cancelled... The tour guide arrived on time and ready to begin the tour.... More

I really enjoyed this tour. It was a unique way to see lots of downtown San Antonio in a little over an hour. This give tourists and locals a good feel of what the city truly has to offer. The tour starts at the Alamo and ends at The Emily Morgan Hotel. The pace of the tour was mostly at... More
