The Alamo Trolley Tour Company

Username: Michell Haase
Comments: The tour was informative, and they had a wheelchair lift, but it was hard to hear the narration at the back of the trolley. Not all trolleys have lifts, so if you get off, you have to wait for the accessible trolley to come by again, which could take a long time.
Type of tour: Trolley
