It is a short roundtrip (around 30-40 minutes). Your guide takes you along the river and points the different buildings and things to do along the riverwalk, along with some history of the area. Our grandson really enjoyed it and asked if we would go again. Even though it was bit warm that day it was not a bad ride as you go in and out of shade. Another plus is you can buy drinks from the ticket booth to enjoy along your trip.

Basically you get to take a 35 minute tour led by your captain/tour guide. They tell you about the history of the Riverwalk and about several of the buildings along the way. It was fun to do with the kids.

This is a must if you are visiting San Antonio! And affordable! It is the most comfortable and informative way to visit the river walk area!

Jared was a great driver! Learned lots (although some of the info was repeated from the Hop on Hop off bus tour.). The line looked long as we walked up, but it moved fast! There was a little convenient store next to the line that sold single beverages ~ so ran in bought a couple of beers for my husband and my daughter's Snapples. It was perfect!

First off cost is $9.00 per Senior. Beverages are welcome - we got good margaritas just before we stepped on. The guide was entertaining, humorous and considerate (waiting about 10 minutes for a passenger who ran to the restroom just before departure). The history was interesting to learn, and pointing out of landmarks helped us decide where to go on our one day in the city. I highly recommend this to start your visit.
