We did a tour with Lee and he was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and friendly. You can access the Alamo for free but the walking tour was $15. Well worth it.

It was very interesting. A must see if in San Antonio. We were a little surprised that the park area around it was quiet small.

Not too touristy and an "original" experience with the story and facts shared well by displays and staff.

There's no basement so unfortunately PeeWee's bike isn't there! But that's not actually why we went there. If you go on a weekend they have musket shooting, which was pretty cool. Didn't do the listening tour but enjoyed walking around on our own. Watched the film on the grounds, which was pretty interesting. We went back at night and so glad we did as it was beautiful!

We toured the grounds and building – we didn’t do a narrated or audio tour - just the free self guided tour. This is a 300 year old former Spanish Mission turned fortress. Toured the shrine, courtyards, and fountains. Lots of information posted to read your way thru the history. Guided tours were $15, audio tours with headphones was $7. Very interesting. They had a gun smithing demonstration & other person showing medications used during the period.

We have a toddler so we didn't get to spend a ton of time here. He preferred watching the squirrels outside to reading plaques. Otherwise I would have definitely done the audio tour. We did go into all the buildings and looked at the exhibits. It is definitely a piece of history and shouldn't be missed. I was surprised that this was right in the center of town. They have a wonderful gift shop with lots of fun souvenirs and interesting books.

How does one review an important and cherished location such as the Misión San Antonio de Valero? This sacred place marks such an important battle, it seems silly to rate it. From a visitor perspective I can say that it is not at all what I expected. The chapel is only a small part of the larger Site which includes a garden, courtyard and barracks. There is no fee to enter though a freewill donation is appreciated. Your photo is taken before entering as photo taking is prohibited inside. Interpreters and guides are on hand to explain and demonstrate the history lesson about the location. A do-not-miss venue if you're in or around San Antonio!

Being from Australia, we didn’t know anything about the history of the Alamo, apart from the fact that it was an important attraction in San Antonio. We booked a guided tour which was definitely worth doing. Jillian was very knowledgeable and gave us a good understanding about the Alamo and its history. We also got military discount.

We could not get in to the main building because the line went on for what seemed like a mile so we did everything outside. It is a really neat place to get a grasp on history and was quite surreal. I would recommend going at a less busy time to get in to the main building though (we tried on a Saturday morning).

Sadly, I was never much interested in the history of the Alamo, which I am now ashamed of. This is worth a visit, it's beautiful, the guides are helpful, and the re-enactors are great. Annnnnd, you'll learn a lot, I certainly did.
