We visited in July, 2014. Our bus had no ac! Then, an employee boarded and instead of offering patrons free bottles of water..... The bus was HOT......she advertised that they were a dollar each! The brakes and shocks were awful and it was difficult for us to hear our friendly driver Alex speak over them. During the week, if you... More

With drivers not sticking up to the schedule, it is impossible to see all sites as advertised. Terrible attitude of employees.

I am sorry for any inconvenience or problems that were caused by my driver not following the schedule. This is a problem that we have seldom had in the 4 years that I have owned the company. The driver was new and when he got off schedule he thought that would try and make up the time which caused him... More

The first stop was 15 minutes late for the pick up. I can understand being behind. When the driver dropped us off at the San Jose Mission he said his scheduled pick up would be 1:17 but more likely 1:20. We arrived at 1:16 and were told he pulled away at 1:14. By leaving earlier than the assigned time he... More

Do not take this trolly. Left people at stop. Was twenty min late and then did not follow achedule and came early and people left at stop. Manager admitted to driver leaving early. Had to wait one hour for another trolly. Say the are best in city. A joke. Use other trolly to see San Antonio. Less expensive too.

From the time we got on the tour trolley, Leroy made us feel at home. By coincidence we and two other couples were from Colorado. Leroy gave us a hard time about living in a state that is not green year round. He did it with great humor and was not offensive. The history he provided was exceptional. I am... More

I liked this tour because you could pick what you wanted to get off and see and what you wanted to skip and go on to the next location. That way you spend all your time on YOUR favorite things.

Hop on, hop off all day. Was hot so I liked getting on the trolley to cool off. Great way to see the city of San Antonio. Drivers were friendly and knowledgeable about the city and the sights we visited.
