River cruise a go ! Don't hope on the city sight seeing bus tour your get stuck and no ride!

I gave a 4 star review but that is for the boat cruise. They did a fantastic job well worth the$$. Now the Hop on and hop on bus tour sucked! The tour info was by a audio tape driver didn't have a clue on any questions . He didn't even say a word to us when we got on the bus. We used it the 1st afternoon we arrived. To see what San Antonio has to tour. We picked what we was going to hop off on at those sites. We stayed near the Alamo so we walked to it. Toured it it was great. Waiting for the bus at the stop where he stopped the day before. Waited for a hour and a half . No bus showed up. Where you start the tour at the city sight seeing San Antonio office a block down from the Alamo was 2 buses sitting at office not moving. We decided we did not want to trust if the bus come to trust them doing the scheduled stops and get across town and be stuck having to uber or taxi when we paid for a bus to hop on and off of! I fully recommend the river cruise it was very informative and great to see what businesses are on the riverwalk. The guide told the history of the riverwalk it was not a recorded tape. I would like to get a portion of my money back but that would never happen. So take my advice don't use the hop on hop off bus tour. One of the homeless folks could do better then that company!

The boat tour was the best . The guide was friendly interesting and his talk had lots of fun facts and history in it . The bus tour was boring although the driver was very good at driving there was just not many interesting things to see . Once on the ground I found there were no places to use the restroom that weren't blocks away . It was very difficult to find my way on foot to the boat ride & when I got there I found out that it was an hour and a half until the boat ride opened .I then walked four blocks back to my truck and rested and then walked all the way back. I was there in the morning and most of the shops were closed around 11. I was lost most of the time I was there and ended up walking probably 3 1/2 or 4 miles that day which is quite a bit for a 66-year-old person .The tours in Charleston and Savannah are much better. The tours in Charleston and Savannah are much better.I really like TripAdvisor too.

Everything was perfect. It was so easy to get the tickets and jump on and off the bus. The boat ride was so fun and easy to access. Loved all the places the bus stopped at. Would highly recommend. FYI-things were closed on Monday!! Didn’t get to see some venues that were on the bus route.
