We took the food tour on our last afternoon in San Antonio. What a wonderful way to spend our last few hours in this beautiful city. Our guide was vivacious and informative. The food stops were all great.

Bethany was a great guide. But my favorite part of the tour was being with my family, who surprised my husband and I, by joining us for a few days on our February Texas Trip. The Cuban Sandwich was my favorite food. I wish it was a larger sample. There were plenty of sweets, so anyone with a sweet tooth would leave very happy! We enjoyed the history of the city and the areas we visited. We wouldn't have found these places on our own. It was nice to see an area that was a bit away from the River Walk.

Our bus tour started right by the Alamo. You can get on and off all day as you need to. The tour is very educational and entertaining. It's a great deal and you must be a part of it when in San Antonio. The only regret I have is that we didn't do the Mission tour.

We just finished our food tour with Sharon. We left mid-tour. We’ve done many food tours in many different cities so we were super excited to do this tour with our friends, none of whom had done food tours. Now I fear they’ll never do another one. Sharon, our guide, was a nice person but not very exciting. The tour began with a lengthy discussion on the front porch of a hotel. We eventually went around back to a restaurant called Ocho and were served a pretty amazing Cuban sandwich. That was the highlight of the food served. The rest went down from there. In general, the pace of the tour was very, very slow from the conversation to the time spent sitting and waiting to move to the next location. The food was fine but....it was just..fine. I’d suggest picking up the pace and re-thinking the food selections. Consider telling some of the interesting facts while walking or during the food eating portion of the tour. Stop briefly to discuss a building or some other interesting fact. Sharon clearly could not “read the room” as most of the guests were yawning and looking at their watches as the tour wore on. One of the stops had menu at the table meant for our group that listed a “complimentary” appetizer then a list of drinks for purchase. So, basically, here’s 1 lovely nacho chip with shredded meat (which was good) and buy a drink with a group gratuity included. Weird. Never had that happen on a food tour. it just felt wrong. If a drink should be paired with the food choice, serve a small taste and price it in to the tour. That’s how all other tours we’ve taken handle it and we are happy to pay for it. Obviously, if you choose to buy a drink at a stop, great, but for it to be presented on a menu that way is odd, in my opinion. All in all, I would not recommend this tour. Save your $$ and pop into places on your own. It will be way more fun! We left, went straight to a bbq place and ordered food.
