Poor experience

The tower had no one speaking and the young girls below seemed to know nothing and kinda avoid us. The boat trip was tooo long and too much info .. the bus ride with all the detours was a mess( not your fault)and didn’t stop next to the dialogue. The female voice was clear but the man’s voice was hard to understand with the bus sounds.

The best way to see San Antonio
Linda_F
, Nov 2021
The boat cruise was great. I highly recommend doing this tour the first day in San Antonio. It gives you the whole areas most important sites. The boat driver was funny and very informative. The hop on was a great way to see San Antonio. I rode the whole way then went back to ride and get off where I wanted. The only issue was the buses were not air conditioned and it was 90 degrees out with 95 percent humidity. I went to the Tower for dinner and it was fabulous to see but don’t plan dinner there. $145 just for me which was a steak a veggie and a shrimp cocktail 2 drinks. Much too expensive

We took the Cruise at night... Definitely a PLUS. The lights and nightlife made things so attractive. Our bus driver/guide, JP was FANTASTIC! He made the tour personal without being overbearing. His delivery and voice were tremendous.
