Would highly recommend. Tours are offered and bus service VIA 40 takes you right there. Beautiful restoration and the best tours of all the missions. You will learn the history of the missions and of Texas.

Pick up a voucher at the visitors centre across the road from the Alamo. Give yourself time to enjoy the intro movie and a walk around the mission.

It was so neat to be able to walk through the ruins and learn about the history. You can go in the church where they still have service.

This mission is huge and so well preserved. We enjoyed touring it and taking many pictures. There is a gift shop, restrooms and loads of free parking. There is also no entrance fee either.
