“Good bike ride”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

We rode the trail from downtown at Houston Street and back. About 20 miles total. Bike racks for storing/securing your bike at each spot. The bike trail was under construction in parts so we went on the roads. Like most of America, they were a bit rough. But the trail was well marked and easy to follow. One should visit by car or bike.

“Don't Just Stop With The Alamo”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

At intervals of less than 4 miles each, you should go on and visit the other missions that are so close to the Alamo. Mission Concepcion is very well preserved and as old as the Alamo. If you want to get a feel for what the Alamo was, visit at least one or two of the other missions on the Mission Trail.

“Long and a bit confusing”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

The Mission Trail was a bit confusing in trying to locate the four Missions but with the assistance of MapQuest on my iPhone, I did manage to find all four.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Amazing tour that gives great insight into the history of Texas. It can be a tiring day but the trolley gives you a chance to cool off and take it all in. I love seeing all the old buildings.

“Gives you real insight into the founding of Texas”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

See all the missions and you will have a better understanding of the origins of Texas and the US. It's a testament to the courage and stamina of the original settlers.
