Our guide Adam was excellent. He was a history major and he really seemed to enjoy what he was doing. He stayed on track, was punctual and was just a really nice person. The things we did on the tour were great, well chosen and I learned a bit about San Antonio. It was well worth the money and my time.

This tour was such a wonderful experience, exceeding my highest expectations! Alfred was an absolutely perfect tour guide who blended charisma, humor, historical expertise, and many anecdotes from growing up in San Antonio. If you can only do one tour of San Antonio, this is the one!!!

Great guided tour of the city, the guide explained very well and showed us some remarkable details that we would never have seen otherwise. We were alone, so the guide was able to focus on us.

Terrific, Brian was so helpful and informative. Would recommend this tour and hope the next group have as much fun! Judith Losa

Alfred provided very knowledgeable history on San Antonio. He has real passion for his city. Very friendly and likeable.
