Rio San Antonio cruises

Hi all

I will be staying at Drury Plaza Riverwalk hotel and I would like to go on the riverboat cruise. Are there specific start and finish points to the boat tour or does it stop at a few different stops?

Where would I go from the Drury Plaza to go on this tour?

I'd like to do it as soon as I arrive to get my bearings and see the riverwalk.

Thanks everyone.

The main point is across from the Hilton hotel. You may want to take it twice...during the day then during the night-two different vibes.

be sure to make a stop at Boudro's for their guacamole made table side

and try a prickly pear margarita....try other suggestions for a meal.


Schilo's German Deli..root beer on tap, split pea soup..circa 1917


Market Square/ Mi Tierra restaurant circa 1941...24/7, Christmas 365, Mexican bakery


the main riverwalk is a horeshoe shape...Hilton and boat pick up are at the bottom of the U


enjoy and welcome to TX

I like to board at the Rivercenter Mall just outside the Food Court doors. That way when we come back to that same spot I can hit Starbucks or any of the other eateries/shops.


Here is a video that shows the Rivercenter Mall loading area at the very beginning of video:
