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.

This is a GUIDED TOUR hop on, hop off bus It comes about every hour and at other days, every 45 minutes. GET A SCHEDULE Traffic, customers, everyday human issues may cause them not to be exactly punctual We liked both drivers but Perry was our favorite. It's not really a traditional "hop on, hop off" bus as there's not... More

This was a great way to see the highlights of the city. We purchased the hop on hop off fare. This not only gave us two days of using the trolley, but also allowed us to get off at some of the sights and walk around. The driver gave us suggestions of places to eat and other attractions that weren't... More

since we had previously visited San Antonio, we opted for a trolley tour to get more perspective of the city. Tour lasted for about an hour with on and off options. But the next day with the second day paid, we were going to catch the tour at a designated stop and although we saw the trolleys in the distance,... More

This hop on hop off is excellent to get around. The driver narrates as he go and tells you a little about the sites you are going to stop at. They try very hard to stay are schedule. The trolley holds a lot of people

Do not waste your time with this company. We had purchased tickets online for the hop on and hop off trolley, along with the Tower of America and Boat Tour tickets. When we arrived on Thursday (the day Fiesta was to kick off) we were told the location only had one Tower of America ticket, but they could get more... More

In April, I was visiting San Antonio and wanted to see some of the historic Spanish Missions. Alamo Trolley stopped at two of them, so I purchased a ticket. It was to stop at eight sites. Had very good guide. Excellent historical knowledge and interpretive skills. Stopped at Mission San Jose and toured beautiful grounds. Waited for the scheduled pickup... More

First of all, good luck finding where the trolley pick-up point is. One day it was in one spot, the next day in another, and no one that works for the company seems to know anything. The first driver we had referred to "my incompetent company." But the biggest problem is infrequent service. They advertise this as a hop-on, hop... More
