They didn’t show up even though they allowed us to book it. Now I cannot leave this review until I make it longer.
Richard rocks!
, Mar 2020
Our guide was very knowledgeable and also fun. We saw the mission sites that we wanted to see. One suggestion to improve the tour would be a handout with the names of the missions with some of the major dates. After the tour it was hard to match the names with our photos
Interesting tour!

Missions excellent tour

Melissa our guide was very knowledgeable about the Missions and this an excellent guide Also has a pleasant personality
Meandering the Missions
, Jan 2020
Michael was an entertaining guide, full of facts and humour. The tour was well organized and lengths of time at each location was appropriate. I would highly recommend this tour with Michael as the guide. *Just a footnote, although the website stated that water was provided, a change in the business philosophy has occurred and water was not provided. Furthermore, the owner apparently decided not to change this on the website immediately, but rather to wait until sometime in February. Although I applaud the ethics for the decision, the implementation is flawed. It was hot during the tour and access to water would have been appreciated.
Great Tour
, Jan 2020
The San Antonio Mission tour is a “must see” tour to understand the history of Texas. Our tour operator, Michael is very good and very informative. Excellent service. Get this tour with him.
Excelent tour
, Dec 2019
We wanted to see the Missions and this tour was great. There were only 11 of us so we had a lot of personal attention. The best was our guide, Michael. He has a broad knowledge of the missions, their history and about history of the zone in general. He was ready to answer all our questions and very adaptable to our needs. I recommend it wholeheartedly
Perfect Way to See the Missions
, Nov 2019
This is a small group tour (11 in our group) and our guide, Mel, gave us the perfect amount of time at each of the four missions. I am so glad we took this tour, as it was very affordable and personalized.
The missions are not to be missed! Tour guide not very knowledgeable, but quite pleasant.

Our tour was cut short bc we waited for folks who were late which some of us did not appreciate. Our guide couldn't answer many questions beyond her spiel.
Best part of our trip!
, Oct 2019
My husband and I enjoyed this part of our 5 day trip more than anything else! It was great hearing about how Spain tried to settle on the New World! The Missions were gorgeous! This is a must do for any trip to San Antonio! Our tour guide was so energetic and truly loves her job!
