We hopped onto Robert's Bus and had a lovely tour around the city. We enjoyed his amusing personality and learned a bit about San Antonio in the process.

I purchased the City Sightseeing San Antonio tour bus. The bus is both pre-audio narrated plus voice commentary by the driver. It went to the Alamo, the Pearl brewery, the San Antonio Museum of Art, San Fernando Cathedral, King William district, and the Tower of Americas. It was easy to get on and off. Purchase online to get the best... More

Hop on, hop off tours are a great way to see a city. We've been on a few. The only frustrating part is when you are given a map that does not state certain stops will not get service due to local construction. We ended doing far more walking than we should have just to find stops that weren't being... More

We had 3 different drivers (Kat, Robert B., and T. C.) during our 2 days on the hop on/hop off bus. All 3 were very knowledge & entertaining in their delivery. I'd recommend any & all 3 of them.

Took the red double decker tour with friends to see San Antonio. A 1 hour trip and then back to hop on and off for a few stops ( at Pearl, King William district and El Mercado ). The driver was great and the view from up top was great fun.

Hop on-Hop off bus tour of San Antonio was short compared to others we taken, but T.C.s tour guide monologue make it well worthwhile. It's a great way to review the city and go back to the attractions you want to spend time at. We bought a 24 hr. ticket late in the day (around 3:30), took the tour, and... More

We always utilise the Hop On Hop Off bus when visiting a city for the first time, the commentary always provides you with a great introduction and overview of the history, architecture and facts of the city. "San Antonio CitySightseeing" is no exception. The tour was informative and interesting. It was made even more entertaining by our driver - "The... More
