Went here 11 years ago and I loved it so much I decided to go back. No it have been taken over by the National Park Service and a guided tour is now offered for free. Lovely people and lovely place with a rich culture.

We were recommended to take the Missions Tour and we toured four of the local missions that dealt with the Alamo. They were filled with history and very beautiful and old.

History lives in all 5 missions and the working aqueduct south on the mission trail. Signage is excellent and a self guided tour is easy to do. The missions are easily found by car, walking, or biking the mission trail. Bring water.

I would highly recommend to visit The mission with free guided tour group. I would not be able to know the history without the tour guide.

It's free to tour the grounds, but they do ask for a donation of $1 to enter the church.
