“Great Way to See the City's Highlights”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

As a pedestrian, this was a great way to get around to the outlying missions and other areas surrounding San Antonio. If you're fortunate enough to get Leroy, your trip is ensured to be the best! He mixes his rich history with humor and tales of the city of old. Full-priced hop on/hop off ticket purchases also receive the services on a second day for free -- this is a wonderful deal enabling you to spend as much or as little time as you like exploring this charming city. The office is located directly across the street from the Alamo, so is convenient to all in the downtown area. If you've not been to San Antonio before, this is an excellent way to begin exploring!

“Leroy and the Alamo trolley”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We had a great day hopping on and off the trolley! Leroy was our guide and was not only extremely knowledgeable but also fun and entertaining! He even got off the bus to clarify a question I had about the street signs ! I would highly recommend this way to see the highlights of San Antonio! Request Leroy,he loves his native town and it shows!

“Great, Informative Tour!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Our different tour guides were all helpful and friendly. Each one added their own "slant" to the information they presented. They had just the right stops for our interests. The workers in the ticket office were also very friendly and patient as they answered everyone's questions. We received free attraction tickets and our second day was free and did not have to be a consecutive second day.

“Great Tour with Stop Off”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

This is a truly great tour from which you can get off at a stop, then get on a subsequent trolley. Many fascinating locations and great photo opportunities. I attended Basic Training at Lackland AFB, TX in 1968...this was the year of the World's Fair Hemisfair. Great tower is part of the tour, also two wonderful Missions, a Cathedral, a Historic District, and the Mercado. We stayed at the nearby Indigo Hotel (separate review). I also attended several schools from Recruiting Service and Officer Training School all located at the time in San Antonio...this visit brought back many fond memories.. I will write a review for each of our stops; This one is really worth the money and there was a special with the second day free.
