“Nice driving tour of south San Antonio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

All missions are located south of city. Be sure to get a map, it will make navigating easier. Very interesting history of early San Antonio and influence of the Catholic Church.

“The Beauty of San Antonio's Past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

The Mission Trail links the San Antonio Missions together and gives the visitor a view of life in seventeenth century Bexar County, the role of the Spanish, and the work of the Native Americans in the construction of these missions. The Missions are in top shape now because they are being considered for the UNESCO designation of a world heritage site. Go to the missions and soak up the quiet, the simplicity of the colonial architecture, and say a prayer for the continuation of historic preservation.

“Great place to reflect and think.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

If you haven't been to the San Antonio Missions, you have to go. We started visiting in 2003 and love going back. It is so peaceful and has been kept in its era. You really feel like you were there when it was a settlement. Beautiful. Love taking family photos there.

Coming from far South America, we were interested in knowing more about the Mexican Texas, and how the Texas Republic became a part of the United States. We found this visit very helpful to allow us to understand part of the history

“A beautiful way to experience history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I picked up a brochure somewhere about the mission trail and decided it looked like fun. It turned out to be that and a wonderful learning experience as well. Each of the missions is unique and has it's own place in the history of San Antonio. This tour is an excellent way to learn about the early days of the city and also affords multiple opportunities for great photo ops. It is a prefect tour for any age young or old from infants to seniors.
