We had rented a car while in San Antonio, so we could drive the tour. They also have bikes for rent so you can ride the tour. Each Mission has maps and there are multiple road signs to direct you to the next mission. All...More

It was amazing to see how well built these were. It is wonderful how they have been able to preserve the sites. San Jose Mission was impressive and gave a true visual of life and workmanship in those days. Highly recommend

San Antonio Missions are very special and somewhat different then usual isolated missions. These are uniquely connected and worth while to get the history of their origin. Make sure to observe the roman baths and water connections

You could use Uber to get from one mission to next but best way would be to rent a bike

First timer! We (adult couple) only have half a day to explore the Mission Trail. Which stretch will be most recommended for biking? I was thinking mission Espada to mission San Jose and back? Is B Cycle my best option if we are only renting for 2-3 hours? Thanks!
