“Best thing we did in San Antonio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Booked the history walking tour while we were in town for a weekend get-away. We showed up at the appointed hour (9:45 am) and wondered where everyone was. Turned out that we were the only two booked for the tour. Instead of cancelling for too few, we got a personal 2-hour walk through the city center by a guide that was not only extremely knowledgeable, but passionate about his city and its unique place in American history. He made the history come alive. It was the best investment that we made during our stay. I can't recommend it enough!

“Great way to learn about San Antonio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This is an excellent tour and we highly recommend it for both residents of San Antonio and visitors. The historical details are very well-researched and the tour pulls together all those small details you learned (and promptly forgot) in school to make a coherent story that is much more comprehensible than just a set of facts. The pace was good, not too fast and not too slow. The length was very doable, and the tour was an excellent way to get an introduction to downtown San Antonio.

“Nice but could be much more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We took the architectural tour. Very interesting in San Antonio with a diversity of architectural styles the tour was ok but a bit superficial as it tends to describe ornementation and not architects and architectural currents of the era. Could be more interesting to talk about architects background and relation with clients who commisionned them for example.

“What a an amazing place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We only had one day to get around San Antonio and we discovered a place with incredible hospitality so that you can have as much fun as you can while you are in San Antonio. We walked, took the boat tour, the bus tour, went to the Alamo, of course, had nice food and met people who really know how to host.

“King William walking tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My husband and I took this 2-hour walking tour in mid October with Gary. He was an extremely knowledgeable and interesting tour guide in this beautiful neighborhood. The houses we discussed represented many different styles of architecture which he explained clearly, and each had a story he told about its history and occupants. This is one of the best architectural and historical walking tours I have taken and I strongly recommend it to anyone who has a serious interest in either subject.
