I loved their hop on hop off tour. It allowed me to spend as much or as little time at each site they stopped at. My favorites were Mission Concepcion and Mission San Jose They were both so beautiful. Both drivers I had were very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a great way to spend the day while my husband... More

Leroy was entertaining while giving us tour first day. Trolley slightly late that day but no problem to see many sites. We came back 2nd day to see locations we had missed. We were dropped off at Market Square, different location from day before & told trolley would be by every 30 minutes due to colder weather. We returned to... More

We had the privilege of riding with Leroy. He was an excellent tour guide and we enjoyed his humor and thorough knowledge of all the attractions in San Antonio!

My wife and I were in town for the Alamo Bowl and this was our first visit to San Antonio. We got a 2-day hop-on hop-off pass on Alamo Trolley. With this pass, the trolley stops and drops you off at 10 different tourist attractions and runs every 30 minutes. And I might say that that this schedule was accurate.... More

This tour was wonderful. Provided history & current info that was extremely helpful. Leroy B Johnson was our tour driver. I loved the personal experiences he gave to the missions a/w/a other SATX locations. Leroy is SATX native & made the tour exciting. Do this your first day in town. He knows all the best places!!

We chose this on/off tour because it went to the 2 Missions. This is a good way to see San Antonio and get transportation around so you don't do too much walking. Our ticket included trip up Tower for the view, and a boat ride along the Riverwalk which was fun!

I chose this company because of its itinerary, as it visits two missions. I was pleasantly surprised to find that our driver and guide, Leroy b. Johnson, is a San antonio native. He personalized the experience of growing up in the city, made us understand how sacred the Alamo is to its residents. He was genuinely interested in his passengers... More

We were visiting from Phoenix and toured on Jan 2nd & 3rd 2015. It was cold and rainy and we were left stranded for 45 minutes at a time waiting in the freezing rain. Considering all the extra activity in town we would have expected extra cars not less. If not for the drivers who went out of their way... More
