Wonderful! This tour is absolutely amazing! Highly recommended Everything was great. We made 4-5 stops. Each was fantastic and the tour guide was very relaxed. She gave us enough time to explore each area. The only problem I had with this tour was communication. GetYourGuide confirmation email said that I had to call the company to confirm. That was absolutely annoying because I paid and confirmed that I would go! Why should I call the company! What was even worse the company never answered me. I called and sent emails but received no response. So, I wasn’t even sure that the driver would show up until 10 minutes before the pickup time. This was the only downside of the whole trip. I hope the company would improve the way they communicate with customers and also I hope that GetYourGuide would ensure that a trip is confirmed once payment is completed and confirmation email is sent. Other than this problem, the tour is really great!

Picked up from our hotel and joined the others for our tour. Nice small group (max. 7). Went up to the top of the needle, then to the Alamo, the Grotto, the Pearl, and ended the night with a River Walk boat ride. Brian was incredibly knowledgeable of the city. This was a great tour on the first night in town as it gave us ideas of what to do the next two days. Highly recommend.

It was amazing. The driver-guide, Loretta, was so knowledgeable and friendly so we really enjoyed all her lectures and stories. My wife and I would recommend taking this tour.

Brian Rankin was our tour guide. He was professional and personable. Very knowledgeable. Excellent tour. Highly recommended

It was a perfect evening. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The sites were beyond expectations
