For our QTVR tours, you should have the latest versions of Apple's QuickTime Extensions and Plug-ins. They are available for Mac and Windows. More information & links.

We are continuing to open new areas with complete QTVR tours of the major attractions around town. We'll be putting up complete QTVR tours of the Botanical Gardens, HemisFair Park and many others. We now have The Riverwalk, La Villita, Market Square, Alamo Plaza, Paseo del Alamo and we just added an unbeliveable QTVR from the top of the Tower of Americas! You can now hop a boat, get off at the Paseo del Alamo and go over to Alamo Plaza, from there you can skip over to La Villita, HemisFair Park, drop in at the Greater Chamber of Commerce for more San Antonio information or just jump back on the boat to continue your tour. Of course, all the tours are linked, except Market Square, so you're free to walk around downtown and see the sights and sites that have made San Antonio Texas' number one tourist destination. Come visit in person when you get the chance. SA's much nicer than even we can show and you'll have a great time! You'll quickly see why San Antonio is Texas' most popular city! And why Heart of San Antonio is the best way to enjoy San Antonio until you get here in person!

Virtual Riverwalk Tour
NEW! Complete QTVR Tour!

Take a ride on one of our fine riverboats and experience San Antonio's world-famous Riverwalk. Stop in at participating restaurants, clubs and shops. Please, keep your hands, feet and other personal appendages in the boat at all times. If your browser supports JavaScript, the QTVR tour offers a jukebox full of great selections so you can have a little music while you're cruisin' the Riverwalk. On the original tour are two points to get off the boat and take a QTVR tour of the most interesting parts of our city...Alamo Plaza (get off at the Paseo del Alamo) and La Villita (get off at the Arneson River Theatre) All Aboard!

La Villita
The site of the original settlement, La Villita is one square block in the heart of downtown San Antonio alive with artists, craftsmen, shops and restaurants.
If you have some time, please take our two free tours - explore the history of the buildings and visit the shops.

Market Square
Market Square is a Mexican style plaza, complete with some of the finest restaurants, shops and galleries in San Antonio. Every weekend there's some kinda party or festival going on here. Be sure to put it on your dance card when you visit San Antonio.

Alamo Plaza
World's First QTVR of San Antonio's Alamo Plaza
If you've never visited Alamo Plaza, chances are you've never been to San Antonio.

Paseo del Alamo
One of the ways to get to Alamo Plaza from the Riverwalk is through the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The passageway is called "Paseo del Alamo" and is lined with a waterway and tropical foliage. Great for photos and the kids will love putting their hands into the waterfalls.

HemisFair Park
While not quite a real tour yet, visit the Tower of Americas in HemisFair Park. If you've ever wanted to see San Antonio from 50 stories up, check out the Tower's observation deck. Hope you're not afraid of heights, 'cause it's pretty windy and kinda scarey up there. We've just added a killer QTVR view from the top! Check it out!

Nachi's Neighborhood
This is our neighborhood. From here you can walk around, see the interesting things and meet some of the people who give San Antonio its color and vitality. You'll find all the details as you walk around the 'hood.
Since we're only a block or so from the hottest spot on the Riverwalk, stroll down, hop a boat and enjoy our tour of the Riverwalk.
