“Run Through History”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

You could ride a boat or a horse-drawn carriage or you could do something really different and fun and run through history. The guides love their city and it shows throughout as they beam with pride along each stop as they tell snippets of San Antonio history along every step. Do this!

“A MUST when in San Antonio!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful time w/my husband doing the run this morning! I'm almost 5 months pregnant and never felt like I needed to hurry or catch up to the others. One of the tour leaders, Vanessa, was really nice and stayed w/us at the slower paces. Tommy was very knowledgeable and I learned facts even after living in Texas all my life! Must do again!!

“Fun way to see more than the boats and horses show you!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Great way to start the morning. Been to San Antonio many times and this has been the best way to see the river walk area. Got to see familiar sites as well as new ones. Run tour lets you go into a couple interesting buildings that you don't see on boat or horse tours. There were different levels of runners but we all could go at our pace and enjoy the run.

Lance and Johnna were great guides. We had a blast jogging around downtown San Antonio learning about all the significant sites.
