Why take this tour?

Meet the open-top, double-decker bus at the visitor center or any of the stops around San Antonio at the time of your choice, and begin your tour. Hop off the bus at the stops of your choice as the tour winds around the city. Plan a stop at the Alamo, one of the top attractions in San Antonio and the site of a famous battle that marked the end of the Texas Revolution in 1836. Nearby, is the San Antonio River Walk, a network of paths along the river that are lined with shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Another popular stop is Hemisfair Park, home to the Tower of the Americas which was constructed for the 1968 World’s Fair. From here, explore the King William Historic District and wander down St. Mary’s Street. Then, hop back on the bus and for a visit to the historic Cathedral of San Fernando, the burial site for soldiers in the Battle of the Alamo.
