What people are saying about San Antonio, Texas

This is the tour you should take in San Antonio. This experienced tour company focuses on small groups and a more personal experience. It makes a big difference. We were picked up at our hotel and were whisked around town by Nick and company. He kept it fun, interesting and provided some great area knowledge along the way. The night tour is definitely a little less formal and more fun than a day time tour. We hit all of the expected stops, Tower of the Americas, The Alamo, and the Famous Riverwalk boat tour. We also hit some great unexpected spots such as Hayes Street Bridge (excellent cityscape pics), the San Fernando Cathedral, the Pearl District and the Grotto. All of this was further enhanced by Christmas lights and decorations everywhere. At the end of the evening, we were dropped off at the hotel door. We enjoyed it so much, we took their daytime San Antonio tour the next morning! Brian was amazing. If you get the chance to do this, don't hesitate, Just book it.

Picked up from our hotel and joined the others for our tour. Nice small group (max. 7). Went up to the top of the needle, then to the Alamo, the Grotto, the Pearl, and ended the night with a River Walk boat ride. Brian was incredibly knowledgeable of the city. This was a great tour on the first night in town as it gave us ideas of what to do the next two days. Highly recommend.
