The guide was very informative in telling us about the history and features of the Riverwalk. It is definitely a must do, especially if you can't walk very far.

We really enjoyed the RSAC. I️ have not been for a few years and noticed the wonderful changes. New boats that run on electric power instead of gasoline. It is so much quieter on the river walk and it doesn’t have that awful exhaust smell...More

This was our first time visiting San Antonio and the first attraction we did when we got there. No long line at the Aztec center where we got our tickets. Apparently there are other locations to get tickets to get a tour on the riverwalk....More

This was a conference scheduled river barge tour & lunch. The lunch was good and the tour better. Learned a lot of historic information in a fun way. If you go to the river walk you need to take a river tour.

This tour was very informative and fun. We took it in the evening as the sun was going down so it was beautiful seeing the lights along the riverwalk come on and see an all new beauty of the area. Highly recommend the ride.
