We enjoyed the hop off and on city sightseeing bus around San Antonio. Especially entertaining and welcoming was the driver/narrator T.C. whose ability to converse directly with us on the bus was most enjoyable and informative!

This was a worthwhile investment on our part. We used the bus for most of our travel to various attractions. The fact that the route loops back through downtown in the middle is great -- you don't have to ride the entire route of 18...More

Our driver, T.C. gave a pretty thorough (maybe a tad gruff, but charming nonetheless) commentary on the history of the sites we passed. Great way to spend the day - a must for out of towners!

You only pay one fee for the whole day. You can hop on and off as often as you like. We purchased a two day pass, which reduces the daily fee a small amount, because we knew we would be there to take advantage of using the... More
