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

I always wanted to go to the river walk it was amazing to ride through the river in the canoe's with a tour guide allowing for photos to be taken. Everyone was very friendly would enjoy going back stayed a few days downtown walking distance away from everything .

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

If you want to take a walking our and learn something, this is the tour. I like walking tours because you stop and go when you need to and not because traffic is pushing you along. I really liked it because I am a fan of history and as I listened I recognized the similarities of San Antonio's history with... More

My three person party went on the history tour and loved it. With that said, if you are not a history fan, chose one of their other tours because you will find it too much. My group however loved it. We were lucky enough to be the tour (no-one else on it). The tour guide was friendly, informative and helpful.... More

Our trip to see the Alamo and Six Flags Fiesta included some time in San Antonio. The River Walk was a little bit of magic in the middle of the city. Charming, fun and lots to see. We had a terrific lunch and took the boat tour in the early afternoon. The tour was entertaining for all ages and I... More
