  • Landa River Trips
    For 25 years, Landa River Trips’ inner tube floats have made average people amphibious. Customers arrive at the onsite river entrance and free parking lot seven days a week to grab an inner tube with or without a bottom. Some also include a cooler for stowing beverages, provided they don't include glass, styrofoam, or antimatter. Then they walk down to the beginning of the Comal River, recline in the buoyant tubes, and enjoy a leisurely float down spring-fed waters. After customers have had their fill of conversation and refreshment, a shuttle returns them to the dry land of the parking lot.

  • Rockin R River Rides
    A buoyant fleet of inflatable rafts and tubes drifts lazily down two sprawling rivers populated with exciting rapids and falls. During 1.5- to 5-hour treks, guests can traverse the Comal or Guadalupe River in an inner tube, relax with a partner in a two-seater raft, or host a regulation poker game with friends inside a raft that holds up to six. Trip durations and age cutoffs may change on a daily basis depending on current river flow.

  • City Sightseeing San Antonio
    San Antonio's distinctive cityscape of modern marvels and ancient architecture unfurls before sight-seekers during City Sightseeing San Antonio's 50-minute tours. Visitors clamber aboard one of the company's fleet of candy-apple-red double-decker buses and listen along with pre-recorded commentary as a savvy driver escorts the group around the city. Among many other stops, The Buckhorn Saloon and Museum awaits budding Texas Ranger historians, and the Blue Star Contemporary Art Center satisfies the tastes of those who prefer Walker's impressionist phase. Though San Fernando Cathedral and the Spanish Governor's Palace takes natives and tourists alike into the past with centuries-old stone, the fast pace of Market Square brings them to the cacophonous now with working street artists and musicians backdropped by colorful stalls filled with clothing and produce.

  • SideTour - Leisure
    Sound Excursions describes their carefully curated group experiences as "field trips for adults." It's easy to see why: every outing takes groups to a new realm of Washington, whether it's the frothy shores of Puget Sound, inland forests and mountains, or tables at Seattle's thriving restaurants. The events held at these diverse locations range from culinary workshops on topics such as sushi-making and moonshine-tasting, to adventurous excursions with whitewater rafting or kayaking, to laid-back themed party cruises. For many outings, luxury transportation is provided.

  • Canyon Lake Marina
    Cranes Mill Marina gives landlubbers the chance to become aquatic adventurers on its fleet of rentable watercrafts. A three-hour eight passenger ski-boat rental lets speed demons tug along delighted adrenaline junkies on the included wake board, kneeboard, tube, or water skis. Slower-moving seafarers can climb aboard a 24-foot-long, party-ready pontoon boat, which has a flat bottom easily used as a dance floor or roller-skating rink. The pontoon boat ferries up to 11 cadets at an ambling, luxurious pace, making it a sturdy hub for swimming excursions, easy-going fishing trips, or an afternoon spent gazing at the lake's natural beauty.

  • Rising Phoenix Adventures
    Seasoned kayaker John Cline paddles with a local hotel concierge along the Colorado River, periodically explaining that kayaking is perfectly safe for beginners and an ideal way to savor the pleasant Texas weather. Suddenly, the sky erupts and an onslaught of rain drenches the waterborne duo. They rest their paddles on their laps, look at each other, and start laughing. Rising Phoenix Adventures' kayak and canoe trips create these unique memories so regularly that one Belgian businesswoman even makes annual trips to the area just to ride the class-1 river. Since establishing the outdoor-excursion company in 2004 with barely 10 kayaks and canoes, Cline has more than quadrupled his fleet to accommodate the ever-increasing demand. After alighting one of the trusty vessels, adventurers set off to navigate through the river's islands and beneath a scenic half-mile tree canopy, where the shores offer glimpses of wild pigs, great blue herons, and undomesticated beach umbrellas.
