    I had an excellent and entertaining tour guide. He made sure everyone was well taken care of. (I can’t remember his name but he was a retired math teacher. )
    Great experience!

    The River Walk cruise was wonderful. The evening was beautiful and they still had the Christmas lights up. The Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour was a pain in the neck. It took over 30 minutes for them to come to the stops to get on. It was a waste of money.

    Great tour of San Antonio...……….Saw or the highlights of the city. Our guides were very informative and quite funny. Highlights were the River Walk Cruise and the Buckhorn Saloon Bar. High recommend doing this tour

    I really enjoyed both the boat cruise and the Hop-On-Off tours. The ability to get off the bus to explore an attraction and hop on another bus is a great feature of the tour

    Unfortunately I cannot recommend this tour. Busses were said to arrive every 20 minutes; my family waited a minimum of 30 minutes at every stop. One bus did not have air conditioning. Lastly, bus tour tour guide stated the last pick up at the Mercado Market was 6:00pm (as was told to others waiting) and a bus never came. We had to walk back to the river center for our car. Very disappointing for the money I paid.
    The boat ride and drivers were friendly.

    We had planned our San Antonio trip June 2018. We purchased our River Cruise and 2 days of Hop On Hop Off Bus trips online April 23rd. After the online purchased, we traveled to San Antonio and followed the online directions on receiving the hard copy. We exchanged the online tickets for the hard copy on April 24th. We clarified the River Cruise and 2 days of Hop On and Hop Off purchase and the woman gave us a map.They even gave us a 3rd day of Hop On and Hop Off free! April 26, 27, and 28, we found out through our B and B, they were NOT running ANY of their bus trips. So, in reality we had 1 day (April 25) to use the cruise and 3 days of Hop On and Hop Off Bus stops. We purchased the tickets as a package through TripAdvisor. The TripAdvisor site gave us all the information we THOUGHT we needed. The woman at the ticket booth in the store NEVER told us about the canceled services even though I spoke to her about our dates and adventures. April 25 was the scheduled cruise. The woman who gave us the tickets said we can use the bus trips after the 25. We told her we were leaving Sunday. She said THAT was fine. Very disappointed.

    We really enjoyed the double decker bus tour. Our tour guide, the great W.C. Calhoun really knows many facts about San Antoino and was very funny. Even when we were detoured to another street he told us facts about that area. The boat tour was great too.

    We use Viator often and always have great results. We had two different drivers one was really good, customer driven - The second was ok but no awards. He really doesn't like customers to wave for him to stop--claims he is not a 'dog' so they simply need to raise a hand - not wave. He announced this to the bus before the customers boarded but then reminded them not to wave for a stop?

    I was a bit bored with this tour. I'm not sure if it was because so many streets were closed for the Final Four so we didn't take the usual tour, or if we didn't have a good driver.

    Had a fun day hop on hop off and then a boat ride too. Great day.
