A river tour with Rio San Antonio Cruises is a great, affordable, and quick (35 minutes) tour of downtown San Antonio. The boat guides are well-versed in the history of the River Walk and the city and are up to speed on current events, including Hollywood stars and professional athletes who have been recently spotted or frequent the city.
Plan a tour early in your trip: It's a great way to discover everything the River Walk has to offer before setting off on foot. There's a ton to see and do, and the cruise is great for getting a sense of where you want to go.
The best way to experience the San Antonio Riverwalk is traffic free when your floating down the river! Sit back relax and learn about the city’s history and unique charms from your knowledgeable boat driver. For an extra special experience charter a boat and bring onboard some cocktails and live musicians. I personally enjoyed swaying along to Johnathan’s classic tunes while sipping my glass of Chardonnay. Crowded restaurants and thriving bars and clubs line the famous river walk- the people watching is guaranteed to entertain you!
