My husband and I travel a lot, and this has to be the worst tour experience we've ever had. We showed up at 10:55 not knowing the trolley left at 11 and the next one didn't come until 11:45. You'd think the woman giving out tickets would have hurried us along - nope. She waited til 10:59 to explain the... More

The Alamo Trolley Hop Pass is the best way to see 10 main sights and decide what to spend your day on, and what to just give a cursory look. And with a second free Hop Day, you can spend time at all ten places if you want. Buses run every 45-60 minutes. Our driver, Leroy, was born in Mission... More

We bought the two day pass that allows you to "hop on and off" the trolley at several major attractions. We had several different drivers/guides, and they were all entertaining and informative. The trolleys run frequently so that you can spend as much time as you like at each attraction.

This only runs until about 5 o'clock There are no signs showing where to catch the trolley and the schedule they give you is illegible. Tour is ok but depends on the driver. Very disappointing. Most of the attrCtions are very close and can be walked to using the river walk or use the city bus or cabs which are... More

We bought the two day pass and the first day we took the trolley all around the course and listened to the history and this was great because it allowed us to plan how we wanted to visit everything. By having the pass we were able to get on and off the trolley as it came around every 45 minutes... More

Spent last weekend in San Antonio. Weather was not real cooperative so we decided to see the sights via the Trolley. 1st day we stayed on and did the entire tour and second day we got off at a couple spots that interested us. Besides enjoying the sights we were on the Trolley with Leroy. What a personality. He was... More

It is true, you CAN drive to many of the attractions. We drive a Trolley. However if you do drive be prepared to pay for parking if you can find parking. By the time you add up all the parking it will be more than the cost for the fully narrated tour and we do the driving for you. More

Really enjoyed my 2-day hop-on, hop-off tour of San Antonio. This is a great way to see the sites, as they do all the driving for you. Also, as the ticket is for two days, that means you can really get out and see a site. I was able to take a NPS tour of Mission San Jose. I also... More
