We did the basic hop on and hop off package for $39. You get every thing you need as well as a great tour. Leroy and Robert were awesome guides. It was great that we could choose when we wanted to use the boat ride and tower of America tickets. We did the tour both days and enjoyed the other... More

Was a nice trolley, air conditioned and tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Nice thing is that this tour makes more stops then other tour companies. However, they only come around every hour. So if you want to see everything on the list you're kind of rushed. But still a nice way to get around town

We had a fantastic guide, LEROY. He was so knowledgeable, interesting and great fun. We skipped a bus just so that we could ride with Leroy again. Everyone on our tour felt the same way. Alamo is so lucky to have him. A very valuable employee. He is the best and we are so happy that wegot to be on... More

Visiting San Antonio with friends and took the Alamo Trolley one hour tour with hop on/off option for two days. We enjoyed the tour with the exception of the air conditioning not working on the first day. Our tour guide/driver, Leroy, was very knowledgeable and kept us laughing with his humorous story telling. After the tour he took the time... More

Purchased the Ultimate Tour with IMAX theatre presentation of "The Alamo" and the revolving tower. Also received a second day trolley pass as part of the Tour. We "hopped off" at most stops, spending 45 minutes to an hour at each site. Our driver/guide for the day was Alex who possessed a wealth of information about San Antonio's history.

We were in San Antonio for the ADA annual conference and had a free day for a guided tour of the City's main attractions. Walking a couple of blocks from the ADA conference hotel, the Marriott on the Riverwalk, we happened upon the Alamo Trolley Tour which offered an array of narrated tours to fit any visitor's budget. We opted... More

It sounds Hokey but, do it. We did the hop on hop off tour and for two days we had a blast. LEROY was the best tour guid ever. He knew all sorts of history and is a GREAT story teller

We enjoyed going on the hour long trolley tour our first day in San Antonio. It helped us to get our bearings. The driver, Alex, was great and very knowledgable. It was great to be able to see the outskirts of town, the missions, and areas you otherwise may not see. We did use a Groupon which helped us save... More

We bought all the tickets for our reunion group and Dave Lyle, owner of Alamo Tours, came to the hotel and explained how to use the tickets. I'm sure that is not one of his daily things he does but we were appreciative. He and his wife, Jill, were great to work with. Two of his tour drivers, Leroy and... More

Very good & reasonably priced tour; 2 days, hop on/off tour. Leroy is a very colorful & entertaining guide/driver. If he lacks any accuracy (& he probably doesn't), he makes up with with making you feel welcome!
