This was my third time taking the Historical Tour with Gary. Every time I come to San Antonio, I try to do one of his tours, and every time I bring someone, we do the Historical Tour. For those who are really into history and are interested in more than just the Alamo highlight tours that are common to find,... More

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 because he has done extensive research; therefore, if you have a question, you can bet... 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 Missions as living and breathing entities. And, he demonstrated the differences between each which was... More

My husband, adult daughter, and I visited San Antonio for the first time in early December. We did not know much about the history of San Antonio or Texas, so we decided to sign up for the History Tour. It is a two hour, information-packed tour. Gary, the tour guide, advises (as does their website) to choose another tour if... More

My wife and I love history and we strive to learn about it at every opportunity. That said Gary was by far the most educated and passionate tour guide we have ever had the privilege of following. We highly recommend going on any of his tours and always take his advice on where to dine. -Newly Weds from NJ

We were fortunate to book the King William District tour with the most amazing and knowledgeable guide, Gary. His knowledge of the district was incredible and he was personally a very delightful, interesting person. It is a walking tour however it is mostly shaded and the up close views you can't get any other way. Highly recommend the tour!

A place stated to have been orchestrated by local administration is simply a heaven.It is always blissful and exhilarating to silently observe the human sea. It is always jam packed on Saturdays and Sundays. The natural flow of human movement from upstairs or connecting bridges is an all time pleasurable experience. Walking ,drinking boating loitering ,all in whispers no non... More

On Friday, March 27th the Mr. & I took the Historic King William's District walk with Gary. The weather was crisp but sunny, the houses were stunning, and Gary provided architectural, historic, and 'gossipy' details about many of the houses we saw as we strolled this gorgeous neighborhood. I can imagine in the hot summertime the neighborhood would be a... More

This was a great, great 2 hour tour choice for us! It's one thing to just walk around an historical city, it's another thing to actually know what you are seeing. So much more interesting! Gary did a brilliant job showing us important highlights of this amazing city. Yes, as other reviewers have noted - he gives a lot of... More
