    What to Expect
    Your River Walk boat cruise offers an entertaining perspective on the history of the San Antonio River. The full cruise takes approximately 35 minutes and covers 1.5 miles (3 km) of the San Antonio River Walk.

    You can then switch to the double-decker bus for a hop-on hop-off tour that begins in Alamo Plaza. Get unobstructed views of The Alamo, then go north to see the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Pearl Brewery Complex and other top attractions. The route includes 18 stops where you can disembark to explore further. Simply catch the next bus to continue your tour; buses run every 20 minutes.

    When ready, head to the Battle for Texas: The Experience, located next to Alamo Plaza in the Rivercenter Mall. Take a self-guided look around the extensive exhibits to learn about daily life for early Texas settlers, the events that resulted in the Texas Revolution, and the fierce battle for The Alamo, examined from the perspectives of both Texas and Mexico. Historical artifacts include Santa Ana’s uniform, authentic Bowie knives, and items owned by Davy Crockett.

    We booked for Thursday 18th April but we weren’t aware that this was the start of Fiesta so we were told by our bus driver to not bother with the bus after 2, because the traffic would be a nightmare and we would be waiting for hours! Not good seeing as we paid for a pass for

    I thought this would be a good way to get around town while hearing about history. It was advertised as hop on/offs every 20 minutes. Once we finally got on after our first stop, it was 35 minutes. We then heard buses were running on 30 minute schedules. Till you see your area
