Overall rating

(21 reviews)

I was very happy with the informative tour. The tour covered San Antonio's history, architecture, culture, and so many fun details. Knowledgeable and interesting guides gave me a better appreciation for the history and buildings that influence San Antonio.

Great tour and well worth the money. Driver was great and made the trip a lot of fun (don't remember his name, but we were picked up at the start of the route at 12:30; he is a black middle aged man).

I lived in San Antonio for 6 years and learned about beauty and fun I never knew existed! It was truly a wonderful 2 hours with my family. We then went back and visited many of the stops.

Trip day included many stops and lots of information about them. Our guide went above and beyond.

First time visiting San Antonio to spend time with friends. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
