Great tour. We bought the full tour package. Two days on the trolley, a boat tour on the river and a trip to the top of the Hemisphere. Alex our driver was very informative

Although our guide was kind enough to wait five minutes as we were late arriving, we found his tour to be pompous and annoying, even a little sexist with references to what the Ladies might enjoy as opposed to what would be interesting to the men. The tour might be good if one were to spend only one day visiting San Antonio, but as we were there for a week it was unnecessary.

This review is unacceptable. I wish you had reported your concerns to the sales staff or noted the tour guides name so that corrective action could be taken. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in San Antonio.

I took a tour with Alex of the Alamo Trolleys and was surprised at how much he knew about the places listed on the tour. I gained new knowledge of all the stops on the tour and I highly recommend this tour for everyone.

This was a very enjoyable way to travel to and from the various points of interest throughout the city. We started by taking the full hour tour and then hopping off and on at the various points of interest we wanted to see. The trolleys stayed very close to schedule and the ticket staff along with drivers were all helpful and courteous. Alex, one of our drivers, did a great job with the one hour tour and also took the time on the last run of the day to give us some more detailed information about sites we were planning to visit the next day which helped us to get even more from our time in San Antonio!

Alamo Trolley offers a second day free with the purchase of a Hop On/Hop Off ticket and you need two days to see everything even with just the minimum time allowed. The drivers/guides we had were Philip and Leroy. Both were extremely knowledgeable, courteous, kind and helpful (my husband is in a wheelchair). They were on time at every pick-up and gave lots of interesting and important facts on what we would see next. A couple of times they even picked up passengers who were traveling with another trolley company but the trolley was late. They are professional all the way.
