I thoroughly enjoyed Tina and Tommy's vast knowledge about the downtown San Antonio area. The run was not too fast and not too slow. Well worth the time and money!

We enjoyed our run and learned a lot. Was a nice start to our time in San Antonio. We got an overview of what we wanted to go back to and spend more time. We didn't even mind the hot weather!

This is a nice morning run/tour. There aren't many other people out so you can get better pictures and the guides are very knowledgeable.
