About San Antonio Detours
We're a family business that loves to have fun! Often called the "tour company for people who don't like tours," we're different from a standard big tour. Our small groups see the major attractions but then go to off-beat places to see the city like a local. We talk about history, art, music, people, neighborhoods and much more. Most of all our tours are interactive and FUN!

Great tour! Misty, our tour guide, grew up around the missions and was very knowledgeable about them. She took us to see the aqueducts as well. Our group was fairly small, only 11 people, so it wasn’t overwhelming. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting...More

Howdy! Thanks for reaching out. On our public tours we use a Mercedes van. We can add on a boat cruise for those that want to make it a private, customized tour. I hope that helps and look forward to meeting you!
