Great overview of San Antonio, wonderful tour guide
, Mar 2020
Mel was a great tour guide! Really enjoyed seeing some of the Missions and learning the history about them. The tour gives you a nice overview of the city without being too long.
Great experience!

Michael was our tour guide, and did a wonderful job of bringing history alive as we walked back in time and learned of the stories and people of significance to San Antonio. We loved the small group concept, and the on-line price promotion, and fabulous cinnamon roll treat, made it even better! I Highly recommend this tour company!

Great tour, Tour Guide Melvin was fantastic. He provided enough history to make it interesting without turning it into a classroom lecture. He was very funny, informative about options to see later and great places to eat, and was simply one of the best tour guides I have experienced, and I have toured over the years with quite a few! I would highly recommend this tour, especially if Melvin is leading it.

Truly, the best guide ever is, Melvin! From start to finish, chuck full of information and exciting stories to share. Melvin was waiting timely at the start destination with name tags and let us know what was going on at every stop and turn- we had some folks that was a no show-which we waited an extra 5 more mins for them. As a result of the no shows, what a loss for them we had a very small group of 3 people in our group, which turned out to be a very fun, intimate and informative day. This small group guide tour is the best and if you get Melvin as your guide, its your lucky day. You will, for sure enjoy this guided tour. Our best regards to Melvin-San Antonio will always be fond memories for us because of you.
