Speakers and AC may or may not work
Oliver
, Jul 2021
Buses were old and either the AC wasn’t working, or some of the speakers didn’t work properly. One bus didn’t have AC nor working speakers in the back. Not a fun experience when trying to enjoy a sightseeing trip in San Antonio summer.

Confusing at First
Yvonne_C
, Jul 2021
It is very confusing as to how and where to pick up the tickets. Don't understsnd why you can't just send the tickets to the customer's phone instead of having them have to go by the Alamo to get them. Also, the buses could be cleaner. Finally, the riverboat tour was fine as far as it went but when we were here before, the tour went all over the Riverwalk, not just one little loop. This tour needs to be expanded. Also, the water taxis need to be brought back. Otherwise, it was ok.

Package set us up for success!

This package was a perfect way to have all the tickets in hand before arriving at each place and avoiding lines. Walked right on to most everything. Enjoyed the River walk and boat ride during the first day, the tower at night (love seeing the lights of the city), we’re grateful for the 2nd day for the bus, and We loved sitting on the top tier for better views and more air. It is helpful to know the bus stops running at 4:30.

We LOVED the riverboat cruise the most. The construction which is out of your control made it difficult to see many of the landmarks described. Bus driver was fun.
