San Antonio River Walk Cruise and Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
Combine two great tours for a comprehensive look at the city of San Antonio. First, enjoy a relaxing, 35-minute River Walk boat cruise along the San Antonio River. Then explore the most popular sites in San Antonio on a scenic hop-on hop-off, double-decker bus tour. Visit popular sites like the Alamo, Pearl Brewery, the San Antonio Museum of Art, Market Square and many more. Select a pass, then board at any of the 19 stops to get to know the city in custom fashion, with live, onboard narration.
What to Expect
The River Walk boat cruise is a leisurely way to learn about the rich history of the San Antonio River. Cruises are about 40 minutes long and cover 1.5 miles (2.4 km) of the San Antonio River Walk.

The  Hop-On Hop-Off tour by double-decker bus starts at Alamo Plaza, from where you'll head north toward the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Pearl Brewery Complex and much more.

See the Itinerary section for a list of hop-on hop-off stops.

You may get off at any of the stops to explore attractions independently; then just go back to where you were dropped off and wait for the next bus, which arrives every 20 minutes.
Stops include the Empire Theater, San Fernando Cathedral, and King William Historic District.

Before you begin your San Antonio combo sightseeing experience, you must exchange your voucher for tickets for the two tours at our easy to find Visitor Center next to The Alamo.

Then enjoy this convenient way to enjoy the city from both land and water!

T.C. was very informative and friendly

He was a very professional and friendly person. Probably one of the best staff members that are employed with the Hop on Hop off. It was somewhat of a busy day but he was still quite friendly

If you want to ride inside the bus, there are 3 steps which are big, wide. Too many to ride the second deck. They have several people where you load that are great at asserting you anyway theycan.

Yes, because your best bet is NOT to do the bus tour, you will be wasting your time and money. Leaves you lots of time for the river walk cruise which is excellent
