I had a limited amount of time in San Antonio, so I booked this mini-City Tour. I cannot say anything but so happy that Perry was my guide. He was funny, informative and was a local. He provided us with an 'insider' point of view with what we were seeing and experiencing. The Alamo was definitely one of the highlights of the tour. If you're in San Antonio, book this tour and ask for Perry.
This tour was amazing!
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.
This review has nothing to do about the tour guide as he was fantastic! It has everything to do about the state of Texas and the City of San Antonio. Why on earth was the Alamo and the Missions not preserved? These attractions are a joke. Selling bricks for 10? Wow!
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).
