Tour description

Be entertained and informed on an official City Sightseeing San Antonio '2-in-1' tour that includes a RIVER CRUISE along the San Antonio River Walk and a 48 HOUR valid HOP-ON HOP-OFF double-decker bus tour ticket. With a combination of live guides and recorded commentary, you'll enjoy the sights of downtown and the Pearl Brewery District. The 40 minute River Cruise is a relaxing way to admire this popular area of the city. On the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour, you have the flexibility to hop on and off as much as you like at any of the 19 stops on the route to see the attractions that interest you, such as The Alamo, The Pearl, Tower of the Americas Space Needle, Museum of Art, or Market Square.

The River Walk boat cruise is a leisurely way to learn about the rich history of the San Antonio River. Cruises are about 40 minutes long and cover 1.5 miles (2.4 km) of the San Antonio River Walk. The  Hop-On Hop-Off tour by double-decker bus starts at Alamo Plaza, from where you'll head north toward the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Pearl Brewery Complex and much more. See the Itinerary section for a list of hop-on hop-off stops. You may get off at any of the stops to explore attractions independently; then just go back to where you were dropped off and wait for the next bus, which arrives every 20 minutes. Stops include the Empire Theater, San Fernando Cathedral, and King William Historic District. Before you begin your San Antonio combo sightseeing experience, you must exchange your voucher for tickets for the two tours at our easy to find Visitor Center next to The Alamo. Then enjoy this convenient way to enjoy the city from both land and water!
