“Pleasant River Cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

My husband and two teenage boys took a cruise along the River Walk. It was around 8pm and while there was a crowd waiting to get on, it did not take long. The cruise is reasonably priced and you get a commentary about the history of the river and buildings along it.
Was a gorgeous summer night and the restaurants were packed making for quite a buzz as you toured the river. You can also take a taxi ride, but I do not think it includes a commentary.
Make sure you get there well before 9pm, as they close the rides right on time!
We had to come back a second night as they advertise "til late" but that is not the case.
Recommend it, but it is not a long ride.

“Leisurely walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

There is much to see and do along San Antonio's River Walk. You can find a number of eating establishments, shopping, and street vendors to visit. A bit crowded at times but that's part of its charm.

“Attractive setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Although it gets crowded as the day progresses, this is a great place to walk, take pictures and eat. We took the boat ride very early in the morning before the heat of the day. It was lovely. We tried to cruise again in the evening but wasn't there in time, but all the boats on the river were crowded.

“Beautiful place for romance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

To get a boat tour, you are better off doing that in the morning as the evenings are very busy. The line to get a ride at night was well over an hour long. Ask for information from a hotel or visitors bureau to verify there are no large conventions.
