“So enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We did the tour and were very glad we did. There are several options to pick from. We only did the half hour tour and it was perfect. Our tour guide knew quite a few of the "urban legends", but not very many of them seemed very believable.

The River Walk offers so many different things to do. We ate dinner, dessert or had drinks somewhere along the river every day we were there (5 days).

Definitely something fun to check out while in SAT.

“river walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Great place to relax and have some food. Even in February it is warm along the river although the birds that collect around the table can be a bit annoying.

“So many excellent restaurants in the area!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We took the river taxi around all the sections of the river. Beautiful lansdcaping, great access, easy on and off the taxi, leisurely river trip through the River Walk areas and all the way through the lock (a 9 foot height difference) and to the Pearl Brewery area. A nice way to travel in a lovely area.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Rio Taxi has great drivers and is a wonderful and valuable attraction to the River Walk. We bought the 24 hour pass and Michael was by far our favorite driver, we enjoyed chatting with him while he cruised us up and down on our evening river cruise. Not only do you learn about the river from these guys, they are a wonderful reference source on the local scene. Going through the lock and dam system was pretty cool too! Buy a ticket and enjoy the ride!

“relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Boat rides are $8/person, Kinda pricey i thought. BUT it isn't something that you regret doing. It gives you the chance to see what you may miss while you walking around. The tour guide also gives you info and handy info.
You can also eat on a boat, haven't done that yet, but it sounds nice
