Common Questions about GO RIO San Anotnio River Cruises and Boat Tours

All our barges are ADA accessible for enjoying tours, taxis, and charters.

GO RIO is committed to serving people of all abilities.

We strive to provide a reasonable accommodation for accessible seating, companion seating, and access ramps for any guest who requires it. In our daily taxi operation, we can accommodate two wheelchairs on each barge. Boarding ramps are available on board each GO RIO Taxi. Many of our riders with mobility impairments choose to transfer into seats and sit with companions/family members. Barge drivers reserve the seats closest to the boarding area and make reasonable accommodation on a case-by-case basis. If a passenger prefers to remain in a wheelchair, a chair can be placed next to them for a companion.

The City of San Antonio keeps maps of accessible routes throughout the River Walk area with walkway routes and construction projects.

You can buy tickets by clicking here, or visit any GO RIO ticket station on the River Walk:

C. Aztec Theater (River Level Aztec Theater – Crockett & St. Mary's St.)
