A great way to experience San AntonioFlag review
This is a great way to explore San Antonio’s river walk. In addition to seeing the sites from a unique angle, we also learned a lot from the guide who narrated our tour. The emphasis is definitely on history and architecture. While young kids might not find the narration interesting, they will enjoy riding on the boat and waving at passersby…at least my daughter certainly did. Be on the look-out for several landmarks along the way including the Tower Life Building and its gargoyles.

The barge driver takes you on a historical narration of how the Riverwalk evolved, how it runs, and what it contributes/ benefits San Antonionians today. My perspective: I was in complete awe most of the evening. Like a kid, in pure engineering wonder. I couldn't have picked ...
