People absolutely love our unique Hop-On Hop-Off downtown and River Walk area tour route - see the map below.
We start out in Alamo Plaza and immediately give you the elevated 'double decker bus' view of the beautiful Alamo. From there we head north towards the Pearl Brewery Entertainment Complex and the Museum of Art before heading back downtown to the Theater District, the Cathedral, the Spanish Governors Palace, the Mexican Market Square, the Victorian-era King William Historic District, the Tower of the Americas and much more.
Of course you are free to hop-off and explore at any of our 19 stops.
Just go back to where we dropped you off and wait for our next bus to arrive. We typically have four double deckers operating so we get to each stop every 20 to 30 minutes. Take a look at our route below and buy online or come see us in Alamo Plaza at our Visitor Center in the Menger Hotel, 216 East Crockett Street, 78205 (Tel: 210 224 8687).
