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.

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

Was awesome, for the next time I need to bring an umbrella

The driver was really nice, welcoming and professional.
