Your pass is good all day & included a 2nd day pass. The "loop" of all stops takes about an hour if you stay on the trolley. Then we "hopped off" on the next loop The Market (El Mercado) for an hour. Tomorrow we will at least go to Mission San Jose, possibly more. There are 7 total stops (hop... More

We bought the package that offered second day. First day was great but we couldn't see everything. Second day ee waited an hour for a trolley that never showed even though their driver the day before said they operated that day. Their brochure had inactive contact numbers do we couldn't call. We ended up driving to the remaining sites. Recommend... More

This was an excellent tour with lots of history! There was so much to do and our guide Perry was excellent! I loved his enthusiasm for the tour and how well he treated everyone. He made the tour friendly and very entertaining. I would highly recommend the tour and especially if you can get Perry!

The same company that operates the trolley tours also does a grand Sightseeing Tour that is a MUST SKIP! It was 8 hours of things and places you could easily go to yourself and get a similar experience from. The Guide was also the driver of the bus and he made a point of explaining his wife was very sick,... More

We booked a wine tour though United Vacations that operates through Alamo Trolley Tours. While our tour guide Perry was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, the tour itself was not what we expected. I had read that we were go to multiple wineries and do tastings at each with a lunch stop in the middle. Instead, we were... More

We got tickets for the hop on and hop off tour and the boat cruise together. We especially enjoyed the boat cruise. The bus tour was informative and the driver enjoyed his canned speech. The bus was rarely there every twenty minutes and when its hot that's a long time in the Texas sun.

I paid 40$ for the hop-on, hop-off trolley tour, ticket to the Tower of the Americas and ticket to a cruise with Rio San Antonio (Ultimate Tour Package). In the end I was very satisfied with my purchase. I don't have a car, so I needed something like this in order to visit in particular Missions San José and Concepcion.... More

I took the tour on 6/4 (Friday) and it was mostly empty. The first tour guide I had kept mentioning that he was only doing the tour for "golf money" and admitted that he wasn't interested in telling the group any real information due to the time constrains. It was easy enough to hop off and then hop on and... More

What an enjoyable tour. You ride to many destinations, hop off, enjoy you time at selected location then hop on to your next location. Very convenient. Recommend two day trally trip. Beware, second day times may change.
