San Antonio missions tour with gray line
Jul 2021 • Solo
Carl did an outstanding job as the tour guide! However I would have liked to have known that the only national park visitor center was at San Jose and have had a little more time there. I thought it would also be at other sites so I waited to get some postcards but there was not an opportunity. However the guide was very informative and had passion for his subject!

A good tour guide makes the tour
Jul 2021
The tour was great and our tour guide, Perry, was even better. He knew everything about the missions and really brought them to life. We went on this tour before going to the Alamo and I think it helped quite a bit.

Wonderful insight in to a fascinsting history
Jul 2021 • Solo
Karl was a wonderful tour guide who brought the fascinating history and significance of the missions to life. I felt in very safe and knowledgeable hands. The sights were beautiful and Karl's presentation of them was as entertaining as it was informative. As I don't drive it'd of been very difficult to get to these sites on my own so this tour really was invaluable, I'd highly recommend it to anyone visiting San Antonio! 10/10

Fantastic way to learn about the history and culture of San Antonio!
Jul 2021
We began our tour in the morning with a courteous and welcoming greeting from our guide, Karl. The vehicle was clean and in good shape. Karl was a safe driver. We had a fantastic time exploring the missions and benefitted from Karl's deep knowledge and understanding of the history and culture of the native people of the area. He addressed many areas, not just religion, including history, engineering, architecture, and agriculture. He was always ready and willing with an answer or explanation for any questions. Karl is also a gifted storyteller as well. We truly enjoyed our morning exploring the missions with Karl! My husband and I were in San Antonio on business and had left our teenage children at home. This was a treat for us to do together, but I am not sure our kids would have enjoyed it as much as it was a lot of history for one morning.

Best Tour Ive Been On Bar None
Jun 2021
My wife and I were the only ones on the tour that morning. The attention that we received from Karl was second to none. There was always cold water waiting if we wanted it and neither of us ever touched a door handle. He insisted on taking care of that for us. He was extremely knowledgeable about the missions, not just basic tour guide information but how the missions played their part in history and in religion. I would certainly do it again.

Fantastic and informative
May 2021 • Couples
Our first Greyline tour. I have to say Domingo could not have been better. He was friendly, entertaining and provided a well planned and informative experience. Having been a history teacher specializing in Texas history, he was able to answer many of our questions pertaining to Spain, Mexico and Texas. 🙂

Our guides strive to personalize each tour; they are the Best in Texas, and we are not just bragging!! Growing up in Texas and having experienced Texas History in middle school, I knew that our tours had to be fun and general enough to keep everyone interested while simultaneously being sophisticated enough for a Texas History or any other educator to enjoy our tours. So we have gone through great lengths to ensure that our information is factual and balanced so as to provide more than one viewpoint. In fact many of our tour guides are former Texas History teachers. Your review truly made our day! Please come back and see us soon, we think you would also enjoy our Texas Hill Country & LBJ Ranch Tour.

Great tour. Saw and learned so much!
This tour picked us up right at our hotel and took us around San Antonio and to three missions. You could see them on your own but the knowledge of Domingo our tour guide made it worth every penny. His love of history really gave us a great perspective of the city and it’s rich culture. The tour is a few hours , and does not include the Alamo which is the fourth mission in San Antonio. The churches and grounds of the other missions are each unique and spectacular . A must do tour.
