We thought we wanted to see it all during our fist trip to San Antonio and booked 2 different tours. our first was the full day of the city. You must be a real history buff for this tour as you were allowed way too much time at each place. Lunch at Buckhorn Saloon was ugh and we went elsewhere.... More

Went on this sightseeing tour and found the experience filled with history and destination that I always wanted to see. The narrator was perfect and the Alamo was my top choice. It was exciting to see and best of all was the amazing history that is well preserved in this amazing building. The tour took us to all kinds of... More

My friends and I booked this tour. When we got to the office, they had no confirmation of our tour booked with through a third party, though we had our confirmation. Our tour guide was Phil, who seemed very knowledgable and we did see and learn quite a bit...but alas I also know too much about Phil as well, from... More

We did a full guided narrated tour, Phillip the guide was fantastic, knew his stuff and was very entertaining. His explanation if the history and the places we visited were amazing . It was a fabulous tour we thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone visiting San Antonio and are interested in the history of San Antonio

This is a "don't miss" experience in San Antonio. Our driver and narrator was Leroy, a native of San Antonio and a fountain of information and fun asides. He is definitely a one-of-a-kind, telling us all kinds of historical tidbits as well as a lot of his own background. Made for a fun learning experience. The Hop on Hop Off... More

I've been on many tours in several cities and this tour was good, but it wasn't great. I wished for more narrative, or story telling, from the tour guide who was friendly and seemed like she was from the area. She had some interesting insights but I felt like there were a lot of good stories to tell that were... More

My Husband and I visited San Antonio last week and we took the Grand Tour. Our guide was Christopher and he was fabulous. Very informative and did a great job at remembering who was with our group so that no on was left behind. Our speaker kept going out and he handled the whole situation with ease and humour. Was...

We took an one-hour grand trolley tour with our friends from California last weekend with City Tour Inc. It was a terrible experience. The tour guide in the bus tried very hard, but just cannot attract our attention. The bus stopped at the each point mainly for picking up the hoop-on hoop-off folks. There is no specific stories or history... More

I don't know why I expected to be in a semi dessert area to tour the Alamo, but instead we were dropped smack dab in the middle of modern day hustle and flow of a very vibrant tourist area, amidst tall modern business buildings, shops, carts & restaurants. great to walk and explore the Alamo. All the tour guides are... More

When visiting a large city we generally sign up for a sightseeing tour on the 1st day available. For our tour, Phil was our tour guide. We were picked up from our RV park on time and delivered to the tour office. Our tour bus left close to on time with only a delay waiting for other passengers to arrive.... More
