The guide, Domingo was excellent. Very knowledgeable & available at each stop for questions. Didn’t overload with details but gave great information to understand the missions & their purpose. Learned a lot even with the hot day it was a throughly enjoyable day. On hot days definitely take the morning tour!

The tour and driver were excellent! We made the reservations online and were told that pickups were available for our hotel but there wasn’t a way to arrange that online. I had to call but could only leave a message that we wanted the pickup. There was no confirmation call so I called and asked to get a confirmation call. The next day, I did not hear back till much later which made me very nervous.

Our tour guide, Perry, was extremely knowledgeable and fun during our tour. We learned and saw a lot and enjoyed the overall experience of the Missions of San Antonio!

Great tour. Anthony our tour guide was extremely professional. His wealth of knowledge was extensive. We were only two of us on the tour and he was able to tailor it to our needs. If we wanted to spend more time at one place vs the other he made the appropriate accommodations. The tour was extremely well thought out and we felt it was the right amount of time to see the Missions and truly learn about the unique history of each. I highly recommend this tour and Anthony.

While the tour of the four Missions in San Antonio, Texas was interesting, this was the only tour out of the three we took where the tour was late by almost 20 minutes and did not bother to apologise for his delay.
