A guided tour is always a nice way to tour historical sites, unknown territory. Your guide does the driving and talking while you enjoy the history. Our guide was Alex. He was kind, professional and enlightened us with historical facts as well as humor. We recommend him if in San Antonio. We also recommend visiting the Missions. They’re beautiful and rich in history.

Booked a tour while in San Antonio. Paid and confirmed for 9am pick up. At 9am the bus was not there. Messaged the driver no reply. Called the 800 number no answer, also tried the dispatch option, no answer. Asked for a refund, was sent a confirmation. We will see. Willing to try 1 more time if I am back SA, Texas.

The tour was incredible. So great to visit and get so much of the history. We even saw a wedding and the beautiful couple at Mission Concepcion. Not all missions were accessible because it was later in the day so consider an early tour to have a better chance of getting inside all the missions.

Perry was a fantastic tour guide! He has a vast knowledge about the Missions and provided us with a very informative tour. You can tell that he is very passionate about the forts and the city. I booked this tour for a Sunday morning and luckily we were able to make it into Mission Concepción before the church service. You could drive yourself but you'd miss the history, background and things most people don't notice that Perry talked about and showed us on this tour.

I like small group tours; ours had only 8 people. Domingo shared a lot of info about San Antonio on our way to and from the Missions and I never felt rushed or herded into the sights.
