  • A very interesting visit to the Alamo, we did not know the whole story and found the displays informative. Alamo not preserved as nicely as San Jose mission and a lot more crowded but still a must...

  • The Alamo was beautiful to see in person. My wife and I enjoyed seeing it because we love to visit historical places. The building holds such rich memories. The architecture alone is astounding. If you are ever in San Antonio, I would encourage you to go by and witness it. We also had a tour guide and it was all worth it.
  • Simply put-you truly need to visit!!! I love visiting The Alamo, and have made the journey twice from Austin in the past year. The preservation and detailed historical data is something to behold. It is amazing for us to look at a historical battle site that is hundreds of years old and be able to envision the events that occurred there. As you walk the grounds to intricately laid out details it will be a huge wake up call and an expansion of your knowledge base. This is a must see for all.
