We very much enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide Dominic was very knowledgeable and a very pleasant person. So much insight into the town of San Antonio. I was very anxious to share what I learned with the family back home. Actually amazing, so much history! And the lunch was great, the restaurant had an extensive menu and we were able to choose anything on the menu - not a fixed menu for our group. We appreciated that. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

Alex (& Domingo) were very informative and helpful. We learned so much about the city and history. The included lunch at La Terra was delicious with prompt service and even entertainment (guitarists). Very much worth the price.

Eric’s Tour

Hoped to see a bit of San Antonio history and culture and this tour didn’t disappoint! Eric, our guide advised he did a slightly different tour from the one on the net, more stops and chances to get off the bus. Eric was informative and helpful. I don’t normally do Five Stars on a point of principle that nothing is perfect however, four and a half not available

Somewhat dissappointed in the trip in that the tour downtown lasted over an hour and the remainder of the time involved lunch limited to lunch special and shopping. I would have preferred less time shopping and more sightseeiing.
