I was glad that we took the bus tour. The driver was a nice lady & gave so much information that we never would've known if we had just walked or driven ourselves around... However, my 10 year old bored quickly and the $53 for 2 adults and a child did not make me happy either! If you know that your kids don't bowl over in excitement over a history tour, don't waste your money.

“hop on hop off your way around”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

What a great way to see San Antonio city with the use of the open-air double decker buses. These buses stop very conveniently in most tourist areas, making seeing the city easy. They are like new, very clean, and the drivers are very friendly and love to chat.

“don't waste your time”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Very little information given considering all the possibilities for San Antonio. Doesn't give any of the flavor of our city, few stops that are worth getting off. Use your $ for something else...maybe one of the walking history tours.Ghost tours, river barge tours all the way from the museum district thru the locks to downtown and back...you can get on off of that too and the guides will explain SA and answer your questions and give you suggestions. You can take the local trolly for a lot less to get around.

“Overpriced and Boring”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

The bus driver was the best part of the bus ride. He was a very friendly and thoughtful guy.

The bus tour itself was not worth $42. The information was on a recorded loop. It was not conducted by the driver. We can walk to all of the places on the tour from our hotel. The locations were not really pointed out to us. I would not do this tour again.

“Good Info, friendly crew; but not many meaningful stops”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We do a Hop-on; Hop-off tour everywhere we go to get feel for the city and use it as a way to get around.

The Hop-on; Hop-off tour in San Antonio provides some nice history narration and the crew was friendly and helpful, but the stops really were not meaningful enough too justify the cost. The Alamo and Tower of the America's park were good stops, the other nine were a bit underwhelming.

There was a point in the tour when it is REALLY evident that there was a "hard sale" going on....It was like the operator was trying really hard to get everybody interested in visiting the "Buckhorn Saloon." I felt like it was a bit too much of a push to visit this place and I did not appreciate that aspect of the ride.
