Very enjoyable ride in a electric open air boat with a very good and funny tour guide. Reasonable price and at a guess around 30 people depending on a time schedule could be less.

A brief ride along the river walk. We thought there might be a lot more history provided by the driver/guide but it was a worthwhile diversion as part of our San Antonio Pass. We were on the tour vs the hop on and off boat...that might have suited us better.

The cost I thought was reasonable, the tour covered a good portion of the Riverwalk trail. Our guide was hilarious and educational. I think it lasted about 45mins or less.

I really think this is worth it. I have been to San Antonio quite a few times but in 2018 I finally decided to get a little river history. Now - know that I used to be the only American of 1000 staff for a couple of years - I can understand just about any accent - but with the noise of the engine - the terrible sound system - and his very very thick accent - I caught about 9 words the entire hour. It was really frustrating. So - my advice is to sit near the rear if you can. The speakers are there and you might be able to hear the captain's commentary a bit better. Just a little tip!

No one in the front half of our boat could hear a word due to the speaker system.

Nice ride through the main part of the river. Worth the price. Good way to see the lay of the land, especially if you can"t walk through most of the river path.
