The boat cruise provided the opportunity to view San Antonio from the river. The tour guide provided informative and sometimes amusing commentary on the history of the Riverwalk area. A throughly worthwhile trip

When visiting San Antonio, it is a must to take a river cruise. There is no better way to see the River Walk and find out how and why it was built.

My colleagues and I stopped in the office last night to see what the hours were. It was 9:17 and we were informed the last boat ride is at 9:15-no big deal we could ride the next day. We turned to leave as the manager came into the office and spoke very nastily to us, "We are closed. Get out.... More

Nice guided tour through the river walk that lasts around two miles. Lots to see and a lot of historical information. Boats leave every fifteen minutes.

Lots of boats so not long waiting times even if there is a long line. Well worth doing so you can get an idea of the things available on and near Riverwalk. Worth the money.

My family came down from Nebraska, so we decided to meet up in San Antonio (we live in Houston) and spend the day together at the RiverWalk. They loved it! The cruise/tour was my Aunt's idea, and I'm glad we did it. It was very informative, the guide was very funny, and they were extremely accommodating of my 91-year-old grandfather's... More
