Last Minute Tour

I was in town for a conference and had an afternoon free. I booked the tour last minute online and the process was very easy. Alex picked me up at my hotel and he was a fabulous guide. The Missions are a must see if in San Antonio.

We had a great time on the San Antonio Missions Tour. Perry did a great job explaining the culture and significance of the missions over the span of almost 300 years. The missions are tightly intertwined into the politics and culture of San Antonio and help put into perspective the current culture. I would highly recommend this tour!

Eric was a great guide, I self proclaimed “history guy” is always appreciated on a tour like this! I got lucky and was the only guest, so enjoyed a nice pace and the quieter mornings at the missions. Eric had lots of interesting stories and was very easy to chat with, highly recommend!!

They were a NO SHOW!!!!! After no one picked us up, I had to call a few places to find out they had possibly overbooked???? No one bothered to contact us. Very disappointed, as this was the day planned for site seeing. REALLY hoping they refund my money!!!

All of the missions are visually stunning and worth visiting. The Texas heat was insane so I suggest doing the tour in cooler months. Perry was an amazing tour guide with an astonishing amount of information on Texas history.

Domingo our local resident from San Antonio was the best. His knowledge of each mission was on point. The stories he shared added to the experience. I recommend Domingo to anyone one who chooses to do this mission tour.

The whole experience was breathtaking. Our driver/guide Domingo, was very informative, personable, and added extra to the tour. He gave the most amazing education about the waterways that feed the RiverWalk and the missions. His tale of the waterways began from being picked up at our hotel and were winding through the entire tour. Fascinating! The missions, themselves, were awe inspiring.
