What to Expect
See San Antonio several ways on this combination tour—with tickets to a river cruise, hop-on, hop-off bus, and the Tower of Americas all included—that you can arrange as you like.

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 19 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. The 750-foot (229-meter) tower located at HemisFair Park was built for the 1968 World's Fair and offers panoramic views of the city from its observation deck, which is accessible by elevator. 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.

A Good Way To Save Steps

A way to do a bit less walking while doing the San Antonio River Walk. We bought a combo ticket for this shuttle along with the boat tour ticket. It was around 100 F while we there - the shuttle helped vey much.
