Our Hop On Hop Off Guides were BC & JP...Both Exceptional...BC was very entertaining and informative. Has a beautiful singing voice. JP...a native of San Antonio was also very good and knew a lot of answers to questions that we had.

I always love these bus tours. It makes seeing the sights so much easier! No parking needed. The entire city can be explored without worry!

Very nice ride! Easier and more fun to get around than Ubering everywhere. Wish the office sold water along with beer though.
