GO RIO’s San Antonio Riverwalk boat tour connects you to the city’s timeless charm! Our enthusiastic, knowledgeable boat captains will share fascinating stories about the city’s culture, history and architecture during your 35-minute tour along the San Antonio River.
Your 35-minute narrated cruise in our brand-new, colorful and quiet electric barges will take you on an enchanting journey through San Antonio’s rich history, from La Villita, the city’s first neighborhood (and where General Santa Anna placed his cannon line in the Battle of the Alamo)… past the Old Mill Crossing where Teddy Roosevelt led his Rough Riders…
You’ll learn about our city’s architecture and points of interest, such as Selena’s Bridge, where Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla Pérez’s husband proposed to her in the movie; the Hyatt Regency Hotel, designed so its height would not cast a shadow on the Alamo in the setting sun; and the Briscoe Western Art Museum. Our German, Mexican, French, Irish, and American Indian heritages create a culture unique to San Antonio.
