Having read the reviews of these walking tours, we decided to participate in two of them. After visiting The History Shop and watching the Alamo presentation at I Max Theater, we met our guide for an in depth "History" stroll. We not only learned a great deal about the historic battleground but also about the settlement of San Antonio until... More

My husband and I had been to San Antonio a couple times but had never taken a tour. The history tour offered by San Antonio Walks was awesome. We were the only people on the tour and Gary was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and shared a LOT of information about San Antonio.

We stayed right on the Riverwalk, literally right out our door. Strolling along the walk was nice. Plenty of restaurants, bars and attractions. You can get any kind of food that you wanted! Not all of them are open for lunch but you can still find what you want.

My husband and I love history and have been on historic walking tours all over the US and Europe, so naturally when I found the “San Antonio Walks” website and read the reviews on this page I booked the “History” tour. BIG MISTAKE… I should have read the bad reviews more closely and heeded their advice. The details were overwhelming.... More

My wife and I took the Sightseer tour on our first full day in San Antonio. Gary was the guide and we were the tour. He shared lots of information about the Alamo and the various cultures and history of the area. He also mentioned his Fork in the River Tour that we took the next afternoon. That tour also... More

My mom and I went on the history tour and we loved it! There was so much information; the guide, Gary, was so knowledgeable! We were the only two on the tour which made it extremely personal. There really wasn't an insane amount of walking but there was a lot of information to be told in a short amount of... More

My fiancé and I had never been to San Antonio and were looking for a way to learn about the city and orient ourselves for the remainder of our stay, so we decided to book the San Antonio Walks Historic tour. Our guide Gary was Fantastic! All facts said were researched from first hand testimonials of people who were there,... More

It's a great place to just hangout and do nothing. the scenery was amazing and there is plenty of shade to block the TX sun. Nice restaurants to walk to as well.

We recently enjoyed the San Antonio walking history tour. Our guide was very knowledgable. Our only reservation was that it was too much about the Alamo, with which we were already very familiar. Perhaps a tour could be offered that would take history from after the Alamo to a more recent time. But if you are interested in history, I... More
