San Antonio, Texas
Our guide was very informative and had good stories about growing up in the area and the locations to which we saw. I greatly enjoyed the Mission of San Jose and found the living oak in the center area of the Alamo Barracks/museum very impressive. The Japanese Tea Garden was very beautiful too. My wife and I greatly enjoyed our trip, and though we left the tour for last, some may want to take the grand tour first that they may see which areas they'd like to go back to like the River Walk. Our motel was only two blocks from the river walk and we spent allot of our time there, but the "cruise ships" ( a quote from one of our boat drivers) were quite entertaining and each time we took one, a total of five times, we noticed something new. Our only regret was we only had time for five days there and it's not enough time to take it all in.
San Antonio, Texas
The show of Shamu' s was great. there was also a trained animal show that was excellent we saw. The trained animals were largely from animal shelters the way I understood it, but I cannot remember the name of the show. We also rode one ride, I think Voyage to Atlantis, exhilarating, especially when we finally got splashed by the water in the 105 degree heat. One ride we were going to ride, Rio Loco looked fun, but due to technical difficulties, shut down the moment we got into the raft. I think their water pumps overheated or broke down. We went on a weekend and paid for a package all you can eat and drink at five different locations. We thought, due to the heat that keeping hydrated should be important, but be prepared to wait in line for over an hour for a refill of lemonade or to eat. If we had kids, perhaps the SeaWorld would have been a great family experience, but we do not have kids. Friends have told us the beluga whale show is great, but we were unaware of it. At the end of the day, we were exhausted, mostly from the heat and waiting in line though the shows and exhibits were good to great.
