“Nice boat ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We went last year it was a nice ride. It moves slow so you can enjoy the scenery. The price was a little expensive for me for a short time. All in all it was good something different to do.

“Why bother?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

These boats are a ride to no where over an uninspiring landscape. This is not San Antonio and these boats are a novelty if you are really short of things to do. Go to the Children's Museum instead for children. It is a novelty perhaps for one time, but why bother to ever come back?

“Cruisin' on the "River"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

While I enjoyed encountering some of the local wildlife (turtles & herons), cruising past buildings on a narrow waterway (man made) was not my cuppa.

If you are using the water trolly to get from Point A to Point B (transportation) then I would recommend it. But as a tourist attraction, it is really lacking.

“Tourist activity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

It was fun for the grandkids. Its too pricey for what you get. If you're staying at the Waterway Marriott and want to go back and forth to the mall, then it would be considered more reasonable. The fare was about $6 per person for all day. Great for several trips, but expensive for a big family and only one trip.
