$16 -- Tubing Trip for 2 on the Guadalupe River, Reg. $54

Sold out - This deal was published April 25, 2013 and sold out May 04, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
We couldn't have said it better: "In south Texas, it's a given: When the temperatures reach over 100 degrees (sometimes as early as May!), it's time to grab a tube, load up your ice chest, and jump in the river" (10best.com). Travelzoo has negotiated a number of deals with Rockin 'R' River Rides to help subscribers cool down this summer. Tubing trips down the Guadalupe River start at $16 for two people.

Why we love it

  • Tube operators line the river, but Fodor's calls out Rockin 'R' River Rides
  • Options include tubing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding
  • Tube trips include shuttle service
  • The company's tubes all include bottoms: "our bottom will save your bottom"
  • A 2-hour pontoon rental for up to 10 people, including snacks and a driver, is $169

Well organized friendly staff

The fact that you can take a cooler and the ease of registering and getting on the river. Also, the fact that they drive you back to the registration location.
