We did this through grey line tours and had a private driver. Stopped at all but the furthest mission. Excellent tour and worth every cent. The missions tell the story like nothing else can. Really, of all the things you can choose to do in San Antonio, don't skip this one. It's great.

We rode to 3 out of 5 of the Missions on the Mission trail - it is a wide, paved trail that is easy to ride. There are picnic benches, and regular sitting benches along the way - we stopped at a table under a tree to have a picnic - it was so nice, sitting in the shade relaxing,... More

The MIssion Trail focuses on the 4 other missions besides the Alamo and their use in the religious times of the settlement of the area.

I really enjoy this bike ride. There are picnic tables sprinkled along the way and parks. The path is wide and the scenery is nice, it is a relaxing way to spend your day.

Take some time away from the busy rush of the city and walk among the historical ruins of the franciscans. An absolute must for history buffs.

Well worth the trip to see all of the missions! All seven are within short distances from one another. Tours are very good.

We visited all of these missions. it's a must if you're into history. The Alamo is not considered a mission any longer but start or end there. Wonderful history and the feelings when you enter each one are so different. Awesome.

Everyone goes to the Alamo, which is admittedly historic. But the missions on the Mission Trail are much more beautiful and historic

The San Antonio Mission Trail takes you back to a time when life was simple but hard for all. Visit the missions to see how settlers, Indians, and priests all tried to live peacefully.
