What a convenience this was! We did the 2 day hop-on/hop-off, and, it was a great way to travel between the points of interest and to learn about the history and interesting facts! The schedules are the drivers were on-time. All the drivers were great - a BIG SHOUT-OUT to Leroy -- Philip -- Robert. Thanks, Guys ... It was... More

Bought the two day hop pass and enjoyed the whole experience. Leroy was our driver the second day. He was very knowledgeable and helpful and had a great sense of humor.

Wanting to visit the various Spanish Missions which are on the outskirts of the city of San Antonio, and not having rented a car during our stay in the city, we opted for the hop on, hop off trolleys of the Alamo Trolley Tour. Tickets for two adults were just under $45 ($21.95 per person) offering one ticket per adult... More

Bought a two day hop on and off package. Tour was late getting started. Driver did not know his facts. Equipment failure on bus. He drove past us at one stop and we had to run after him. Next day the trolley broke down before we could get started. Left stranded at a drop off point. Had to walk back.... More

I am sorry for your experience. However you did not included enough details so I can be sure this was The Alamo Trolley or one of the other Trolley companies. Normally our tour guides/drivers never miss a pick up. As for being late starting that did not happen on the 13th. On the 14th we did have a break down... More

This tour is a good value for the money. However, just the missions are outside walking distance so I'm wondering if we really needed to take this tour. The narration was ok, but sometimes difficult to hear. At the beginning of the tour, our trolley broke down and so we switched to a different one. Because they were down to... More

The office location is hard to find. Called to get directions and was told it was directly across from the Alamo. Well it depends on what your definition is of directly across. Once located it was on the side of the Alamo. Went inside to find the different tours that were available and chose a one day hopper and the... More

We offer several packages and different ways to save money. But we do not combine offers or coupons. That is clearly spelled out in the fine print of the coupons and offers. I... More

We had a wonderful tour on March 17. Leroy was our tour guide and he was outstanding. He made the tour most enjoyable. He was informative, very friendly and very helpful. He also has a wonderful sense of humour. We highly recommend this tour and also Leroy. Joellen & Doug B. (from Canada)

Leroy did an outstanding job of getting to know the participants on the trolley. He knew that we were from Oklahoma. Referred to us several times and thrilled our grandchildren because of his references. He kept us informed and entertained all at the same time. Without question I would recommend riding the trolley with Leroy. Now it took way too... More

We purchased a two day pass. What a mistake!!! The first day the two drivers were very informative and told some of the history. Now the second day the driver "T----" was so put out to load my husband. Then when another person showed up and needed to use the ramp, he said the most condensing comments to the elderly... More

Loved our tour. Leroy was very informative and funny. He did a great job!! Encountered several people who had chosen Double Decker tours and had spent long amounts of time waiting for a bus to come back around and pick them up. Our bus was comfortable and air conditioned. Very informative
