You start with a guided tour of the magnificent Mission San Jose, then head to the historic King William District for a stroll through the most elegant neighborhood in the city, and finally a drive by Pearl to get a glimpse of “new” San Antonio.

You'll also explore the Guenther House, stroll through the King William District, tour the King William House, check out the 'new' San Antonio by driving by the Pearl District, and drive by several other attractions including: the Riverwalk, the Alamo, Alamo Cenotaph Memorial, Torch of Friendship Tower of the Americas, Hemisfair Park, La Villita, St. Anthony Hotel, Travis Park, Tobin Center, Mayor’s Office, City Hall, Fairmount Hotel, and the Emily Morgan Hotel.

Very interesting tour for tourists and residents alike.

Really great tour with a fantastic guide named Misty Ray. She had a sparkling personality while reciting historic facts. Made remarks that made you remember facts and date. Will call her again to take the other tours she has. Thanks Misty!
