Excellent Tour and guide
Alex was great and made this tour interesting and easy. He called ahead and got us great reservations for lunch (we got to jump the line ahead of a lot of people) had great recommendations for the rest of our trip. I would recommend taking this tour your first day in SA so you can plan out the best places to revisit

Great Tour of a Beautiful City
Aug 2021 • Family
My family and I really enjoyed this tour. Alex was great! He was prompt, fun and very knowledgeable about the city. He provided much needed ice-cold water, took several pictures of our family together at the different stops, and even got us seated for lunch with no wait in a very crowded restaurant. We learned so much and cannot wait to return to this beautiful city! The only thing that bothered me is that I noticed we were the only family who tipped our guide! Alex was with us 8 hours and very much deserved to be tipped be all passengers. Please don't forget this step, people! Thanks, Alex!

A leisurely sight-seeing day in San Antonio
Aug 2021
I booked an all-day historic tour with Gray Line Tours using the Viator,com website, It was a wonderful experience, and although it didn't rain, I brought my umbrella just in case. SPECIAL NOTE: Even though I was the only one on the tour, Gray Line didn't cancel the tour. This is incredible customer service! I know of tours that would cancel if there weren't a certain number of people going. Fantastic.

My tour guide was Alex, who was extremely informative and friendly. I highly recommend doing the tour with him. It was well worth the money I paid because I would never have gone to as many areas on my own, nor gotten the amount of information about those different areas on my own. My stay in San Antonio was 3 days.

Please note: This is not a Riverwalk tour so be sure you allow yourself time to visit and have a bite to eat at this special place on your own -- or through another tour.

Full SA Historic Tour
We did this tour just this Tuesday with my mom and we both think its great! Our tour guide Alex was very friendly and accommodating, and even offered to take pictures for us. He toured us throughout downtown and around SA center and taught us about the history of each places we visit. Pick up, depending on the hotel’s location, was right on schedule. Overall an amazing experience and a wonderful way to get an overview of the city and learn its history, especially if you’re unfamiliar to the place. Definitely would recommend!

A fun interesting tour of San Antonio
Feb 2021
Our tour guide Domingo grew up in San Antonio and was able to add his insight as well as historical perspective in his descriptions of the sights we visited. He made the day trip very enjoyable and interesting. We got out of the van numerous times so be sure to wear loose comfortable clothing as well as good walking shoes.

Ultimate introduction San Antonio
Jun 2020
"During our all day tour 6/03/2020 our driver/guide, Domingo Reyes, did an outstanding job of showing us San Antonio. In spite of the restrictions and closures we had a full day. If you want to get to know San Antonio, historical and current, Domingo and Grayline are the way to go. Great value."
Thank You,
Bill and Dee P.

Historic Tours
Mar 2020
Our tour guide, Alex G, was very knowledgeable of San Antonio and shared good information about the historic sites we visited. He accommodated our group well since one member couldn’t walk to see all rather details! It worked out fine. I would highly recommend the Full day tour as I felt the gentleman who joined us after lunch was at a disadvantage and didn’t get to see the morning sights. The restaurant we ate lunch at, Mi Tierra Cafe y Panaderia, was excellent for food and service. Our server, MaryLou P, answered questions about our food choices and everyone at our table enjoyed their food! A “10” in our opinion! The bakery attendants were also helpful and friendly! The many festive decorations made you smile! Although we did not get inside the Alamo due to an event, we learned the history and will come back in five years when the expansion is finished! The many missions showed us the deep history os San Antonio and marvel at the preservation efforts they have done. The church portions were beautiful. The Riverwalk did not disappoint and Alex gave us information that our river guide never mentioned. Highly recommend Alex for future travelers!
