The river ride is a must do type of thing while in San Antonio. We really did enjoy it. It now costs $8.25 for a ride that lasts about 30 minutes. We went at 10:30 in the morning, so the boat was not full...if it had been, we would have been touching knees with those across from us, as there is no space at all. We went on October 24th (yesterday) and had a driver named Doug. What we did not enjoy was his almost begging for a tip. If he had just mentioned at the end of the 30 minutes, as he did over the speaker, that tips were appreciated, that would have been fine. However, as my husband and I got off last, he said pointedly to my husband, "Sir, tips are appreciated, as we make minimum wage." We felt that his asking someone directly was way too much....sadly, we would have been glad to tip a good driver a buck or two for an outstanding job.....Doug's jokes were so corny and outdated..."Does anyone sing solo? If so, sing so low that we do not hea you." I recommend everyone doing the boat ride at least once...however, avoid Doug if possible.
