The Go Rio San Antonio Riverwalk Cruises are a great way to see the city of San Antonio. They run every 15 minutes from 9 am to 10 pm, making it easy to fit into your schedule. The best time of year to go on a riverboat cruise is in May when temperatures are perfect and the flowers are in bloom. Visitors are sure to get stunning views of the cityscape and plenty of chances for photos – not to mention an enjoyable way to spend an hour or so while visiting this beautiful town. Nothing spoils a relaxing cruise like gas-powered boats polluting the water, so they only use quiet electric boats steered by friendly captains who know how to keep everyone entertained with stories about the city's history and fun facts. Additionally, each boat can cruise up to 40 passengers at a time, making it ideal for families or groups of friends who want to explore together but don't want anything too fancy or formal.

City Sightseeing San Antonio Tours
Schedule
Family Pass
Visiting the sights of San Antonio is a perfect time. The summer heat hasn't really arisen yet, and it rarely rains. However, San Antonio is one very large city, and one thing you don't want to do is to continually park your car. There is a perfect solution in the City Sightseeing San Antonio Tours! You are escorted on an air-conditioned bus with a top open for sightseeing and photography, and guided by the commentary of a fantastic tour guide. The best thing though about this tour is that it is a hop-on, hop-off adventure. Want to visit the famed Alamo? No problem. Hop-off and visit. No delay in parking your car. Then when you are through, wait no more than 20 minutes. Another convenient City Sightseeing vehicle will show up. There are 17 stops to visit. Everything from the famed River Walk to the Lego Land Discovery Center. Want a sumptuous lunch? If the River Walk is not your thing, then just hop off at the Southtown stop. This is by far the easiest way for a family to visit San Antonio without being burdended by their car.
