Take a relaxing riverboat cruise down the beautiful Paseo Del Rio, shaded by towering cypresses, oaks and willows, and bordered by gardens of ornamental foliage.
A visit to historic Market Square is a fun experience. From the famous 24-hour restaurant and bakery, Mi Tierra, to an outstanding art gallery and century-old pharmacy, this is a great place to shop for gifts or to just relax and enjoy a little people watching.

We enjoyed seeing the Missions and learning more about the history of San Antonio. Prepare for lots of walking, wear comfortable shoes. The variety of sights included in the tour and our guide, LeRoy, made the tour worth our time and money.

Edward guided our total group of 16 on the all day tour. Could we have done all this on our own? Sure, but he moved us around on a full size bus, got our tickets for the paid attractions, and gave good local depth to everything. The Alamo, two Spanish missions, Market Square with a stop at THE best Mexican place in San Antonio, Japanese Tea Garden, the Cathedral in the Main Plaza, and a 45 minute Riverwalk cruise. The best way to experience the must see places in San Antonio.
