Description

Get an immersive ride through the streets of San Antonio on a unique tour through the city's history and culture. This outing shows you famous places from downtown to the Alamo, all while you listen to your guide share facts about the city's origins and take part in Texas trivia games.

Your experience starts when you board the roomy tour bus in the heart of downtown. Friendly guides are on hand to liven up the ride with games and trivia that help you get to know the city, while an audio experience takes over at each destination to let you hear voices and sound effects that take you back through the events that shaped its history.

Check out HemisFair Park, site of the 1968 World's Fair, and the charming La Villita Historic Arts Village. Get a look at the historic theater district and follow the route that John F. Kennedy's parade took on the day before his fateful trip to Dallas. Learn the history of bluesman Robert Johnson's recordings at the Gunter Hotel, and then see the Cathedral of San Fernando, one of the oldest cathedrals in the United States.

After lunch at the old Mexican market of El Mercado, you visit the San Antonio River locks, hear the story of the Pearl Brewery redevelopment, and see the green oasis of the San Antonio Botanical Garden. Get a look at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mission Concepcion, site of one of the first battles of the Texas Revolution, and finish your tour with a look at the Alamo itself before you head back to downtown.
