The highlight of our visit to San Antonio! Beautiful walk with so many restaurants. Be prepared to get a little turned around sometimes. Apparently after Thanksgiving they turn on festive lighting which I'm sure is amazing.

My wife and I had a very limited amount of time in San Antonio. Gary listened to our needs and customized a condensed and combined tour of the Alamo, the missions and the King William district just for us. Take the VIP tour, it's great!

Where can I find more information about the historical walking tour? Where does it go? How long is it? What is the cost? What days and hours is it offered? I will be in San Antonio in September, 2017. Thanks, Barbara
