River City Run went out of their way to make a tour possible for the dates I was in San Antonio. It was a perfect combination of activity, history and nice people. I highly recommend it.

Our guide was very flexible in a last minute reschedule due to weather, and a follow up from the company was appreciated. They accommodated group of people who varied in skill greatly. We have done running tours in a few cities and always reccomended them. This will definitely join the list!

While visiting San Antonio for work, I tacked a couple of extra days on to see the city with my wife and enjoy a long weekend away. As we were looking for something to do, we stumbled upon River City Run and, as runners ourselves, were definitely intrigued. We booked a tour for Saturday morning and laced up our shoes in anticipation. As it was an uncommonly cold morning in San Antonio, the group that morning wasn't very big (just myself, my wife and one other runner), so we definitely got a personal tour of downtown San Antonio from our very knowledgeable and friendly running guide! As we waited for the tour to start, my wife and I got a chance to take a picture in front of the Alamo without anyone else in the background (which is rare, but since it was early no other tourists were around yet). Our guide took us on an excellent 5K run around the city with plenty of stops along the way at points of interest where she regaled us with interesting stories and historical facts. The informal pace and stops along the way allowed us to take plenty of pictures, as well as pose for some by our tour guide. It was a fantastic way to start the day, as we got in both exercise and culture, learning a lot about the city in which we were staying for a couple of days. So impressed with this unique opportunity, my wife and I will undoubtably be searching for similar tours in other cities we visit from now on ... but believe me, after experiencing River City Run, the bar for running tours is set extremely high!
