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

Sold out - This deal was published May 07, 2013 and sold out June 06, 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

The river.

If your employees aren't fans of TravelZoo or other businesses like them, they should either keep it to themselves or not use the service of that company. It is annoying as a customer to be offered a deal by your company but then be given an earful about how much of a pain it is for you all to use.

Tubing is fun

Round trip service, and extra tubes for coolers.

Although they can't control river levels, it would be good to let customers know when the maximum length trips are not available due to river levels. This could be done on the website to keep customers informed.

The river

Aug 24, 2014 Maria TX, United States

The Guadalupe river is beautiful, and very peaceful.

If the water level is low, as it was when I was there, it takes a lot of hand paddling or it is a long ride.
