Hop on-off tours are always the best way to get to know a new city. We were fortunate in San Antonio to take a ride while Leroy was driving and providing historical perspective about the city. Funny, insightful, friendly and engaging, this veteran has it all and more. Be sure to spend the $4 extra bucks to get the second... More

Just came back from a 3 day trip to San Antonio. We purchased the hop on and off off ticket with a second day free. Our tour guide was Phillip and he was the best! Phillip loved what he did and was so nice to everyone on board. He gave great information and was funny/entertaining. We had a few of... More

We did the Hop Pass Tour. which was a great bargain, because it included passes to the Tower of the Americas and the Riverwalk Boat Tour. We had Leroy as our tour guide. We enjoyed his humor and his entertaining information on San Antonio so much, that when we used our second day pass, we made sure Leroy was our... More

I bought the tour through Groupon. It was a great deal! You could upgrade to hop on and off at the different spots but since we had been walking all day it was nice to just sit and drive around the city. Leroy was our guide and he was great! Very knowledgeable! We drove to different spots in the city.... More

My husband and I purchased a two day ticket ($39) with the Tower and River Boat tour. On the first day (driver- an older gentleman in his 70's) took us and two other couples to two stops where we got off at the King William District. On the way we were taken via the freeway and didn't receive all that... More

We enjoyed this easy and convenient way to get to see several of the missions. We really enjoyed our guide/trolley driver, Leroy. He was very informative about the history of the missions and other sights along the way, plus he was entertaining. We later drove to some of the other missions not included in the tour as we found them... More

This is an excellent way to see the city as a whole before you decide to see the Alamo itself, the Missions, and King William.

Took the tour during a recent visit and loved both tour guides -- Roberto and Leroy. Each one made the tour fun, interesting and pleasant.

We caught the trolley at the famous Alamo and then proceeded to see the San Antonio that we never knew about. The missions, the history, the inside stories on many of the sites--wow! Leroy suggested we pay a little more for the Hopper Pass so we could get off to explore stops in greater depth: great idea! Informative, enlightening and... More
