We travel a lot and this is the first time using a tour company. Get Your Guide exceeded our expectations. The communication was great and our guide Zachary was knowledgeable and accommodating. We were picked up on time in a Mercedes Van with another couple. I highly recommend this company and tour and will definitely look to book again for future travels in other cities. The best part was because it was New Year's Eve they charted a Go Rio Cruise boat so we didn't need to wait in the long line. Thank you for making our vacation awesome!

We had this leisurely walk through the town of San Antonio and ate some very good food. Stopped at four establishments. First one was the bakery on Houston streetand we had sweet bread. And we went to a bar had brisket fries amazing. Last stop was at menger next to the Alamo where we had a taco and Fabulous fabulous mango ice cream with mango purée. So good!!! Leisurely stroll through the street with a lot of great information. Fun day!!!

We rode the riverwalk during the day, then again with Christmas lights at night. The hop on hop off bus was wonderful, but the Tower of America's was the last thing we did and we didn't get to enjoy it so next time we will do it first.

My brother and I definitely enjoyed all the activities bought online.

Lines were better on the week days and in the daytime hours
