Start this tour as you wish, perhaps by climbing aboard a boat and learning about the city’s history as you float down the San Antonio River Walk.

You also get access to a hop-on, hop-off tour on a double-decker bus with 18 stops, including the Alamo, Pearl Brewery, San Antonio Museum of Art, and more, that you can explore at your leisure.

Admission to the Tower of the Americas is also included.

In addition, there is a lounge and revolving restaurant at the top of the tower, as well as a 4-D theater ride included with admission.
