Had the amazing opportunity to spend the evening with the incredible Emzy of @thebarwalk. We had the joy of doing his drunk history tour, 7 hours later I was basically inviting him to come back to nola with us. Absolutely wonderful, if you have a night free In San Antonio don’t miss your chance to learn the history while drinking around the city.

This barwalk tour was awesome. We took the 2.5hr tour. Emzy was very personable and knowledgeable about San Antonio and its history. He had a lot of trivial information, as well. If I return to San Antonio in the future I will definitely sign up for the 5hr barwalk. I wish we would have done this on our first day in San Antonio. Emzys sight seeing tips and food recommendations were on spot! This was one of the highlights of our vacation. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys history and a great drink!!

What more could you want than ghoulish tales mixed with the fascinating history of SA and a raised blood alcohol content? Emzy, yes his real name that has a story of its own, has researched his tour so well it’s truly fascinating. Having visited from abroad we got talking about wider topics and bonded with Emzy over a few too many cocktails. Passionate about his work he makes sure that his bar crawl is not like others being dragged along the riverfront drinking frozen cocktails instead you get a history tour, a ghost tour and the bars he’s picked out serve some really good quality drinks. We’ve recommended his tour to several friends all of whom have enjoyed the tour and the company of the man himself. Cheers!

Honestly this was probably the coolest experience that we’ve ever had as far as being on a tour in a new city!! We had no idea what we are getting ourselves into but it was so awesome, our tour guide Emzy was such a cool and fun guy to be around he had all the most interesting facts about San Antonio and we bar hopped around the city getting to know one another and had such a blast the entire night!! This is great for couples who love history, and just want to have an awesome time checking out bars they normally would not have if it wasn’t for this type of tour!! I would recommend taking us tour 100% even if we went back to San Antonio we would take this tour again LOL such a great night to remember!!!
