What is a San Antonio Explorer Pass?

A San Antonio Explorer Pass is a multi-attraction pass that includes admission to your choice of 3, 4, or 5 San Antonio attractions for one low price.

How does a San Antonio Explorer Pass work?
  • Purchase a pass for the number of attractions you want to visit — we offer 3, 4, or 5-Choice Passes.
  • Your San Antonio Explorer Pass gets you into your choice of 3 or 5 attractions, including your choice of one Premium Attraction. No need to decide before your trip, choose as you go from the options included with your pass.
  • Simply present your pass at included attractions for admission. Pay nothing at the gate.
  • Visiting your first attraction activates your card. Then, you'll have 30 days to use your pass.
How will I get my pass?

You'll get your pass via email as soon as your order processes. Choose between 2 options:

  • Use your pass right on your phone with the free Go City Card app.
  • Print your pass and guidebook at home.

Links and easy-to-follow instructions for both options will be in your confirmation email.

What else does the pass include?

You'll get a guide with hours of operation and directions for each attraction, and a map to help plan your itinerary.

Frequently Asked Questions Show All

Is this just a discount card? Will I still need to buy tickets?

No. Passes include admission to each attraction; no need to pay anything at the gate. Some attractions may offer upgrades or special exhibits for an additional fee.

How does the Premium Attraction choice work?

You may choose one Premium Attraction as one of your San Antonio Explorer Pass attraction choices. So, if you purchased a 3-Choice San Antonio Explorer Pass, you may visit your choice of one Premium Attraction, plus, any two additional non-premium attractions.

Where do I pick up my Rio San Antonio Cruise Ticket?

Passengers must pick up their River Cruise ticket (by 4:55pm) prior to boarding at: San Antonio Visitor Center, 216 E Crockett Street, San Antonio, TX 78205.

Do I need to choose my attractions in advance?

Nope, choose as you go. The pass is good for any combination of the number of attractions you purchased.

My child is under 3 years old. Can I get them a San Antonio Explorer Pass?

Child Passes are recommended for children ages 3-11. Many attractions offer free admission for younger children. Please consult the attraction websites for more details.

How will I get my pass?

You'll get your pass via email as soon as your order processes. Choose between 2 options:

  • Use your pass right on your phone with the free Go City Card app.
  • Print your pass and guidebook at home.

Links and easy-to-follow instructions for both options will be in your confirmation email.

How do I activate my pass?

Easy: simply visit your first attraction!

Is the pass valid all day?

You bet! Feel free to visit the attractions any time of the day as long as they are open or operating.

What is your refund policy?

Our Risk Free Guarantee gives you 30 days from your purchase date to return any non-activated passes for a full refund.

How much will I save?

Compare the price of the pass to the gate prices of the attractions you want to visit to see how much you can save. Many customers save 45%. Or, check out some real savings examples from Go City Card customers to see how much they actually saved!

We give you the flexibility to create your own itinerary and choose the attractions you want to visit depending on your interests.

Can I visit an attraction more than once?

No. Your pass includes only one visit per attraction.

Can I purchase passes on the spur of the moment when I arrive in San Antonio?

Of course! Visit one of our local purchase locations or order online and receive your pass(es) digitally. Please be aware that online orders may take additional time to process. If you need your pass(es) immediately, please contact cs@smartdestinations.com.

Does a San Antonio Explorer Pass expire?

Yes. You have one year from the date of purchase to begin using your pass. After one year, it will expire.

Do I need to make reservations to visit the attractions?

Attractions that require a reservation will display this symbol on the guidebook page.

Some attractions require a credit card to hold a reservation. In these cases, your credit card will not be charged unless you do not show up for your reservation.

What's the catch?

There’s no catch. San Antonio Explorer Pass has a partnership with all of the participating attractions to make your visit to San Antonio as memorable as possible and to help you save time and money.

Can I share my pass with a friend or sell it?

No. The San Antonio Explorer Pass is non-transferrable and may not be re-sold.

What happens if an attraction is closed or a tour is cancelled due to weather or other problem?

While we do our best to ensure that all attractions are available, events happen that are out of our control. The great thing about a San Antonio Explorer Pass is that there are so many attractions to choose from. If an attraction is closed, or cannot be visited for some reason, we know you'll find a fun alternative in your guidebook!

I still have questions!

Please feel free to email us at cs@smartdestinations.com and we'll be happy to help you!
