Eric, our tour guide was magnificant! This gentlemen knew the city and I think... threw in some extra fun. I liked how although we may not have been able to gain entrance to some places (museums, zoo, etc) it gave us a real feel for what was available to come back to see on our own (which I did on Wednesday, the fantastic McNay Art Museum). He knew what attractions had free admission and when. This tour is a MUST for anyone visiting San Antonio and Eric was truly the bomb. Thank you Eric for making my stay in San Antonio so special and fun.

Our driver, Eric Clark, was excellent. He was so knowledgeable, giving us full and complete info at every site. He answered all questions with his full knowledge and patience. We could not have asked for a better guide.
