“Great History Tour - Truly Discover San Antonio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Great Tour. Highly Recommend. My wife and I arranged for a private 4 hour tour on Friday, our first day in San Antonio. We are not history buffs, by any stretch, but we wanted to get a deeper understanding of the area. More than we would normally get on a superficial quick tour or on any self guided trips. Gary has a great way of taking the history and connecting timeframes, events and locations throughout the tour. Even beyond that, his explanation of the multi-national cultural influences that shaped this history is what surprised and intrigued us the most. If you really want to learn about the amazing history of San Antonio, you must take this tour.

“Very good tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

I had the opportunity of having a "VIP" tour, since I was the only customer on that Monday morning for the standard tour. The guide was very professional, gave me a lot of explainations about the different phases of the battle and also about the growth of the city.
The walk itself was not so long, with plenty of place to sit if you're not as fit as you could.
I would definitely recommend this walking tour.

“Easy flat walk filled with information”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

My sister and I recently took the History walk and really enjoyed it. Gary spins a great tale of the history of the city, especially the battles around the Battle for the Alamo. He re-creates the scene very vividly and you are transported to the past. He then walks you around the downtown area explaining the history of Texas, San Antonio, the river and virtually everything you would like to know about the beginnings of Texas. The walk is easy, and through most of it you are seated. He does ask you to wait until he finishes at each stop to ask questions. Well worth the money and far superior to those on-off bus tours where you spend half the time waiting for people to get on and off, This is individual attention
