This tour is short on walking (about a mile) and long on historical details. Gary was extremely knowledgeable about San Antonio history and was able to dispell myths and expand on commonly held beliefs, such as why the Alamo is so named, why Santa Ana...More

I love the San Antonia walks. It is has fine restaurants and beautiful setting. The boat cruises are excellent but just walking around is wonderful.

What a professional presentation of the history of this lovely city -- from the early 1800s to the present. The Alamo may be the center of the city's past, but it was so helpful to have the Alamo put into the context that made it...More
