We had a group of 16 so we had a private bus which was great. We also had the best tour guide. He really knew his history and was funny too. I would go on any tour he was giving.

Informative tour. The tour guide seemed knowledgeable about the missions. The day before we did the Hill country tour, with a different tour guide, both were very informative, most especially at San Antonio's festival time downtown.

There were some misunderstanding on the meeting place so we waited outside of Alamo for 1/2 hr doing nothing.

Overall, I didn't find the guide very knowledgable. She had answers for many questions and was friendly but the level of knowledge was superficial. For example, she didn't know much about the natives or the dates of the buildings. It would be great if she could study history a bit more to provide more stories in the tour.

It would have been cheaper and faster for me to rent a car and drive around than to take this tour.

The tour guide/driver was excellent, very informative, very nice and interesting. The admin staff at the office were horrible. I had booked via Viator and was told to email or call a number to confirm. I emailed and NEVER received a response. I called and talked to someone to confirm the date and my name.

About 15 minutes after I was supposed to be picked up, I called the office and received the first of many lies. I was told there was traffic and they should be there within 10 minutes. When I called again, the 2nd lie I received was they went to the wrong hotel. Another 10 minutes passed after I called another time and was put on hold multiple times. The bus driver picked me up and told me he had just been told I was waiting. I wasn't on his list to be picked up, and he just found out. When I told him the excuses I was given, he agreed that they were just excuses.

Anyway the tour was good. We had our own time at the Alamo. Then we were driven around San Antonio and out to two missions. The excellent tour guide gave us a history about both missions.

Don't waste your money on this one. Love Viator and will continue to use them, but they are not necessary in San Antonio. You can easily do these stops on a hoho bus. But, regardless, the tour guide was very confusing - multiple times didn't know what he wanted us to do (follow him or be on own).

The first hour and a half was on our own at the Alamo prior to meeting the guide. The missions were free and the market as well. We could have done them as well on our own. We thought this would be more an overview of the San Antonio area. Not worth the money paid for 1 12 hour bus ride. We left the tour at the market.
