Alex was our guide, he was very knowledgeable about San Antonio, Alex took his time to explain in detail everything we was seeing from the history of the San Antonio river and how it became what it is today to San Concepcion and how they built the mission, and how they used fruits mixed with limestone for their drawings on the walls that currently exist on the today. It was a very educational tour of San Antonio
