As many times as I have visited, I have never been on the boat tour. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. I highly recommend it.

I was rather disappointed after the boat ride with some strange jokes and restaurant stories of a guy, who I expected to tell some of the city's history. I learnt which place have him diarrea and where he goes for beer. I still don't know the city's beginnings. It is the guiding that made it very unpleasant.

There are several locations to purchase tickets on the River Walk. First location was crowded so we walked to the next and only had a 15 minute wait. Tour is relaxing and informative. Our guide spoke too fast, however it was fun to be on the water and seeing all the shops, restaurants, history and activity on the River Walk. We had to social distance so our boat was not crowded and we were not offered the hop on/hop off option.

While the boat ride was decent. I learned nothing exciting or new about the city or the river walk itself. I was hoping to learn some hidden gems which didn’t happen.
