We were very happy that we chose to do this. We bought tickets for the hop on hop off tour. I would recommend at least 2 days to see everything on this tour. Our tickets included Tour of the Americas, a boat ride, and second day was free. For 3 people it was $119 and some change. Oh, and it's... More

Perfect length, good information. Easy on and off. We had a groupon, so got a great deal. Learned about some things to see that otherwise would not have occurred to us. I recommend it!

The guide was very nice, but we truly didn't learn anything from him! We drove around and didn't see much of anything. Plus, he kept apologizing about the outside heat. The trolley had AC but it only hit in a few areas. I don't know if I'd go again.

We took this tour today. It was 95 degrees out and the trolley had no air conditioning! The driver kept apologizing saying this has been going on for a long time and he keeps telling the management about it but they don't bother to fix it! We drove around a bunch of dilapidated neighborhoods, stopped at a few missions and... More

If you want to see San Antonio, you want to see it through the Alamo Trolley. You also want to ask for Mr. Leroy Johnson as your tour guide. He is informative, knows his Texas History and he can through in some wit your way. He is also very good with the little ones.

This is a great way of seeing the city without committing for an entire day. It high lights the most popular spots. Choose the 2 day option so you can go back to someplace you may have missed or just want to revisit. Leroy was one of our operators and he was great. Knowledgable but with a sense of humor... More

We took this tour because the trolley offered air conditioning and hop on at we thought better locations.The driver/guide Heidi was informative and had a very lively presentation.One of the passengers felt ill and was driven back to her nearby hotel,a very nice gesture.Please note New Orleans that it is possible to offer a timetable for pick ups.

This made our trip so much nicer. Leroy was our driver most of the time.. We tried to make sure! He was funny and very knowledgeable about the city, he made our trip to San Antonio! Thank you, sir! But as far as getting around the city, we had no idea what to see and where to see it, so... More

This was a great experience for those wanting to see more than the tourist area of San Antonio. We took the Hop On, Hop off trolley. Philip was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable which made the tour more interesting. This is a two day tour. The second day is free so you don't have to rush at... More
