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!!!

Jazz was wonderful!!! She took the time to tell us detailed stories and allowed us to take as much time as we needed at each stop. Very enjoyable and my family and I would definitely recommend it!!!

We had a great time! Learned a ton about the city, met some new people and had some drinks. Nothing to complain about

Jesse was a very informative guide! Had a great time even though it was very cold outside

It was fun, but the 3rd bar the Cowabunga was not so great. Would definitely recommend
