You can get to most of the places they take you by way of the riverwalk. They had recorded information and it was not very personal.

This hop-in, hop-out trolley tour is very informative and it covers the major downtown area and two Missions. We took the trolley tour on the New Year's Eve. The road blocks for the massive celebration in the city that day caused serious delays, plus one of their drivers went "missing" that afternoon causing heaver loads for other running trolleys. We...

This trolley offers a great way to see what San Antonio has to offer. It comes by every hour at the designated stops and is the best way to see San Jose Mission and Concepcion. We didn't want to miss these new UNESCO sites, but we didn't want to rent a car. We had a 2-day pass and planned out... More

Our driver and tour guide Ginny was very knowledgeable of the town and a very safe driver. We enjoyed our 2 days on the trolley. Our driver Ginny also gave us some places to... More

We started our San Antonio adventure by using the Alamo Trolley Tours. It's across the street from the Alamo. It took us to various places like Mission San Jose, Guenther House in the King William district, La Villita, Texas Institute of Cultures and other places. The tour guides provide an ongoing historical lecture about the many stops. Jump off and... More

This company is a joke. They took my money, and I was never given the services I paid for. I was unable to get on the one bus they had running the two days I had my tour package because the driver refused to follow the tour schedule. I was given a phone number to call the office if I... More

The trolley makes the rounds of most of the major places to visit: Alamo Plaza, Hemisphere Park, La Villita, Mission San Jose, Mission Concepcion, The historic district, Mexican Market and Civic square. During our visit, it was running on a 1 hr. loop schedule, and we didn't find that to be a problem, but during busier seasons the extra frequency... More
