We got a comprehensive overview of the city. We saw famous landmarks, different neighborhoods & restaurants. We learned about the history and culture of San Antonio from our guide. We travelled with a small size group for a more personalized tour.

Very well done. Pleasant and personalized experience. Tour guide was wonderful. We've been on San Antonio tours in the past but this time we were introduced to sights we hadn't seen before.
