Itinerary
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!

Relaxing View of Riverwalk

The cruise was lovely. The captain was very knowledgeable and pointed out areas that we might want to visit after the cruise. I would highly recommend this cruise.

Short but sweet way to orientate yourself

This clean, comfy standard tour, frequently plies the San Antonio Riverwalk, with the ability to hop on and hop off and see the view from an alternative perspective. The boats are well maintained and the guides very helpful. Quite pricy for the short trip but...More

T.C. was very informative and friendly

He was a very professional and friendly person. Probably one of the best staff members that are employed with the Hop on Hop off. It was somewhat of a busy day but he was still quite friendly
