The highlight of our visit to San Antonio! Beautiful walk with so many restaurants. Be prepared to get a little turned around sometimes. Apparently after Thanksgiving they turn on festive lighting which I'm sure is amazing.

My wife and I had a very limited amount of time in San Antonio. Gary listened to our needs and customized a condensed and combined tour of the Alamo, the missions and the King William district just for us. Take the VIP tour, it's great!

A wonderful stroll with Gary. What a refreshing, different take on the history of the city. Prior to the tour we had breakfast at The Guenther House. It was a great combination.

By far, Gary's tour is the BEST tour of San Antonio! My sister and I took the Historic Tour and even though this was my sister's fifth tour with him, we both learned so much from his wealth of knowledge. He clearly knows his stuff...More

We were very fortunate to find the San Antonio Walks missions tour as this company seems to fly under the radar - we have no earthly idea as to why!? Our guide Gary was as good as they get. He was able to portray the...More

Yes, you drive to but disembark and walk the grounds of each Mission.
