Would like a partial refund, due to unclear information when booking through Viator
Evony_C

My family member and myself had to go to three places to receive a ticket to get on the boat ride. The representative said we just had to show our bar code. They said that since we scheduled by a third party, we had to retrieve our ticket from another location. I was very disappointed in this and am requesting a partial refund. Thank you

Were not told we would have to walk long distance just to have a paper ticket printed out. Did not get to use the bus tour option of our package.

The river cruise didn’t care for the bus he didn’t stop long enough to get off when sitting on top I wouldn’t buy that again but definitely the river cruise

"Memorable first trip to San Antonio"
Shirley_M
, Jun 2022
Everything was fine but the river cruise. We are a tall family and the river cruise was very uncomfortable. I had to sit backwards so when the guide would say left I would have to turn right and wait until we passed whatever it was I was suppose to look at. You should take out or don't seat as many people in the middle seats. The top (railing) of the middle seat pinched my arm because it was out of place. I must say I loved the the guide we had, he was funny and very knowledgeable I forgot his name but he was born in St. Mary's Hospital if that wasn't just a line in his act 😉. The bus ride was very good and John was very knowledgeable in knowing which businesses were closed on Monday, Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday 😁 and friendly. Shirley

Love boat - busses need window upgrades
Rebekah_R

The boat was great. The bus tour was cool but if you get off you have to wait about 30 min for another bus. If you are inside the bus the windows are either dirty or covered with sticky stuff where you can’t take pictures of your tour and at 104* it was too hot for the top deck and the second bus we took didn’t even have a top deck and the window you couldn’t even hardly see through on one side.

River ride is a guaranteed remedy for relaxation and romance.

The Hop-on-hop=off River Cruise was lots of fun, relaxing and the River boat captains were funny and knowledgeable. It was disappointing that access to the Shuttle boats to get back to our Parking spots was not included in the $69 ticket per person. Would recommend that it should be or maybe a couple of dollars could be added to the ticket to make available this facility.

San Antonio Boat and Bus
Lora_P

The historical boat tour was fascinating. Our guide was knowledgeable and answered questions easily. We learned a lot and the boat was comfortable. We were on two different buses. One was ideal with a pleasant driver. The other driver was loud and crude. We did not stay on that bus too long. All in all we enjoyed the experience.

The cruise is fun
Amber_H
, May 2022
The cruises were really fun but the hop on hop off was not really worth it for us. If we'd been staying more than a day it may have been. But i was really hoping to see some sights that we would not otherwise see from the tour itself because we were only there for roughly 36 hrs. Unfortunately that was not really the case from the double decker tour. We did learn some interesting facts on both tours.

Excellent boat captain! Full of useful info with some humour thrown in. Great photo opportunities and she allowed us a few minutes to get just the right pic to send back to the UK

I liked the riverwalk...
Felecia_S
, Mar 2022
I liked the riverwalk part of the tour, not so much the bus 😊the lady said it was her first day to drive the bus and it was very uninteresting trip. But the riverwalk part more than made up for the actual bus. I travel the world and I have to say that bus tour was the very least of my favorites. But not her fault as it was the first time she drove the bus. I would still give you guys a great thumbs up as the overall experience was superb.

Buy it directly from the bus company, not viator.
Kristen_D
, Mar 2022
We were disappointed to learn that we could have saved $16/person, for our family of 4, if we’d purchased directly through the tour company vs through viator. The boat tour was amazing. Our tour guide was hilarious. The bus tour was average.
