I wish I had realized that I could have taken a bike from downtown San Antonio to the other missions... I never would have wasted my money on this bus. The pick up schedule is completely unreliable and the information on the buses was limited. I got off at 3 stops and looked around for a total of 2.5 hours...... More

I have taken a lot of city tours, in this country and Europe, and this was the first time I've ever been disappointed. We recently moved to S.A. and when family came to visit we thought this would be a good way for all of us to see the sites and learn about our new home. All five of us... More

I really can't understand why there are so many high marks for this tour. $28 per person and it is a 1 hour tour. We had guessed from the map they gave us and their sister company in Dallas, it would be of the downtown area. We were wrong. Nothing compared to the wonderful Dallas tour. The first 40 minutes...

For $40 you get trolley or double decker bus tour with hop on hop off privileges and access second day. Although only trolley goes to two missions. Purchase also gets you a ticket to Tower of America's observation deck AND River boat (barge) tour thru San Antonio Riverwalk with expert driver telling you about sights along the tour. Very good...

My wife and I visited on a short vacation. As time was limited, this was a great way to see as many things as possible in a short time. Phillip was our guide and he is amazing. I want him to narrate my life! He should do voice over for all San Antonio businesses' commercials.

Entertaining and knowledgeable. Leroy gave us extra information about the city. He was, obviously, proud of his city. We bought the two day pass. We rode the route the first day and hopped on and off to tour the places that interested us the most the next day. Well worth it!

Sept. 28, 2015. We had Phillip as our tour guide. He was very informative. He spoke very clearly and repeated things to make sure we all understood what he was trying to convey to us. He was very passionate about his San Antonio's mission history and did not want us to miss a thing. Phillip was delightful. It was well... More

I was carless in San Antonio, but wanted to explore the city, so I decided to take one of the trolley tours. I bought a 24 hour hop on, hop off pass. The price was reasonable, but a little high. The guides who drove the trolleys were both good. The first day I simply rode through all the stops on... More

We used the Trolley for downtown transportation. They have three routes in and around the Alamo. We got a $4 all day pass to get on and off when we wanted. Cheaper than a taxi. Nice friendly drivers.
