River Walk, San Antonio, TX 78205

The Basics

The River Walk has a lively vibe throughout the day and draws large crowds in the evenings; dinner reservations are recommended or you may find yourself waiting a while. A great way to experience the River Walk—other than on foot—is by taking a 35-minute boat tour, featuring entertaining stories about the San Antonio River’s rich history. You can combine the boat ride with a hop-on, hop-off bus or trolley tour, and consider adding a stop at the Tower of the Americas or the Battle for Texas Show as well.

Totally Worth it
The tour bus is a must as it shows you a great snapshot of the city and places to visit. If you stay on the bus for the whole trip it’s only about an hour long but you can hop on n off around the whole loop. The buckhorn saloon is a great place for anyone, a must see. Our family really enjoyed the boat tour as well because enough get to see the riverwalk and we used it to plan out our walk for the evening. We’re headed to tower of America’s today. All in all a fantastic package!

San Antonio River Walk Cruise, Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour and Tower of the Americas
We enjoyed the River Cruise, the Alamo, and The Tower of The Americas. We wish we had the Hop On Hop Off Bus tour app so we could tell what time a bus would arrive at each stop. We had this in San Francisco and it was very helpful. We really appreciated the air conditioning on the lower level and the ability to wait on the bus u til it left. All employees were friendly and helpful.

Very knowledgeable bus guide and boat captain. We could not see several of the sites due to road closures and construction in several areas. The area needs more ADA access to all of these sites.

San Antonio River Walk Cruise and Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
Beautiful! , a must have visiting Riverwalk, good to get more knowledge of the Riverwalk and historical buildings around it. I wish the ride went a little slower, it said runs 35 min, it was actually less than 30 min, somehow I felt we were rushed to get it done. I hope it would give more time to just reflex and enjoy the ride.

When to Get There

The San Antonio River Walk is open 365 days a year. While most of the River Walk is open 24 hours, some park sections are open only from dawn to dusk. In downtown San Antonio, visit in the early morning to avoid the crowds, or head to the River Walk when the sun goes down for some of the best nightlife in Texas.

Along the River Walk

Learn more about the famous Alamo with a stop at the IMAX Theater to see “Alamo: The Price of Freedom.” Visit the Esquire Tavern, San Antonio’s oldest bar (dating to 1933), or head to the Pearl Brewery complex for a cooking class or dinner at one of its many eclectic restaurants. Check out the Aztec Theatre, once a lavish motion-picture theater and one of Texas’s most popular attractions—second only to the Alamo.
