This combo package features guided sightseeing with the freedom to see major San Antonio attractions at your leisure. Your two-day hop-on hop-off pass on an old-fashioned trolley introduces you to key sights in the city, plus you get admission to the Tower of the Americas observation deck and 4D theater ride, as well as a boat ride on the San Antonio River. For still more sightseeing, consider upgrading to get all this plus admission to the Battle for Texas: The Experience and Texas Ranger Museum, as well a double-decker bus tour.
What to Expect
Listen to live narration about the city's colorful history and top sights, hopping on and off at the stops as you wish with your two-day San Antonio trolley pass. It makes exploring the city on your own enjoyable because you can do it all at your preferred pace. (See Itinerary below for a complete list of hop-on, hop-off stops.)

For example, you might take your time exploring the famous Alamo, where Texas colonists fought bravely against Santa Anna's Mexican troops, as well as the San Fernando Cathedral, where you can pay respects to some of the heroes who are laid to rest there. Admire the crafts at the downtown arts community of La Villita, and have fun shopping for Mexican wares at Market Square (El Mercado).

This combo package includes an open-air riverboat cruise along the San Antonio River. Still more: Ride a glass elevator up 500 feet (152 meters) to the observation deck of the Tower of the Americas, and enjoy a nifty tour of Texas at the tower's exciting 4D theater ride.

Upgrade with Double-Decker Bus Tour:
Explore San Antonio in depth with a great sightseeing upgrade that includes admission to two more museums, as well as a 50-minute double-decker bus tour. A knowledgeable guide will share insight about such key attractions as The Alamo and La Villita. Along the way, see the Mexican area of Market Square (El Mercado) and the San Antonio River Walk, one of the most popular attractions in all of Texas.

The two interesting museums included in your upgrade are the Texas Ranger Museum, an overview of the famous law enforcement agency, and Battle for Texas: The Experience, which features an impressive collection of over 250 artifacts.

I am sorry to hear of your experience and am not surprised. Unfortunately you have posted your review to wrong company. As you stated you rode with City Sightseeing not with Alamo Sightseeing Tours.

With this package deal, you get one river cruise, one trip to the top of the Tower & you can tide the hop on, hop off bus as much as you want for two days. That’s what we did.
