Great way to see the city! Love having a run tour (as opposed to walking) because you're able to see so much more in the same amount of time. Knowledgeable and friendly guides share a good balance of facts and interesting stories. Nice little route, too. Great for all levels - my husband (who considers himself a "non-runner") and I...

I would absolutely do this running tour again. If you are in town, do it! My only suggestion is to possibly provide a print out of the places we visited. It was great to listen but my memory isn't as great as it used to be. That's a reach, though. It was worth every penny. So awesome!!!!

I arranged a tour for a group while TDY and it was a phenomenal experience! Johnna and Lance were wonderful tour guides and not only shared great information about the various sites, but a few funny stories as well. I highly recommend these tours to anyone who enjoys running and wants to learn more about the city!

Our group was in San Antonio for the Alamo Classic Gymnastics invitational. Our kids were occupied by team activities so we adults were looking for something active to do too. Some of us are runners and some like me-mostly walkers. There was a pace for everyone. We saw parts of the city that we would not have gone to otherwise... More

Had so much fun touring the city in such an organic way. I'm an avid runner and often do races when I'm in a new city to explore and get a run in.
