We saw the main attractions by hopping on and off at several stops and having a delightful tour guide who entertained and informed us all along the way! His name is Leroy Johnson and he is the best! Great humor... More

I rode the hop on/hop off trolley for part of a day and then I was stuck in a meeting so I did not get to take advantage of the second free day but my wife did and she loved it. We hopped off on several sites but sometimes are timing was off to catch the next trolley but that... More

My mom is from out of town, so this was an excellent way to spend the day. We started the tour with Leroy, and if you take this tour you HAVE to make sure you get on Leroy's trolley. He has a great sense of humor, is very knowledgeable of the city and it's history, and made sure everyone had... More

I took a tour with Leroy. He was a terrific tour guide! He offered a lot of information, great sense of humor, timing and an all around specialist of historical and sociological info that was not mentioned on the very poor tour i also took with City tour company. Leroy was outstanding! Make sure to ask for him. I thought... More

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

Took the Hop-on trolley tour today with Alamo Trolley in San Antonio,Tx. and it was a great way to see the city sights without having to do the driving myself. Was really too much too see and do in 1 day so will use our second, free day to finish. Leroy, our driver was both entertaining and informative. It's a... 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
