Here's a recent unsolicited comment from a
Canadian visitor who used the web site for planning his
Just a quick email
to tell you how much my wife and I enjoyed our recent
visit to your wonderful city and our stay at the Westin
Riverwalk. The walking guide we received from you provided
us some excellent advice and we used it a lot. The
souvenir map you recommended on your website was also very
helpful. We particularly enjoyed the walking tour you
suggested, having brunch at the Guenther House and touring
the King William area. My wife enjoyed exploring the
Menger Hotel.We enjoyed touring the Alamo, El Mercado and
La Villita. We thoroughly enjoyed the boat tour of the
Riverwalk. Finally your restaurant recommendations were
bang on and we particularly enjoyed Boudros and Paesanos.
Thanks again and we hope to visit San Antonio again.
And another unsolicited comment from
I am so grateful
that I stumbled upon your website when doing searches on
San Antonio. I most utilized your website for the hotel
selection (we went with Omni La Mansion del Rio) and you
would have thought it was the Texas bible as much as I put
trust in the recommendations (apparently, you sounded like
you knew what you were talking about). We also referenced
your itinerary and found it very helpful. I would
recommend you adding to your itinerary the new part of the
Riverwalk that was recently opened up (and if you get to
the top of the river (the new part) right at 8:30 p.m.
then you can see the bats. We suggested to the Riverboat
Tour folks to offer a Bat Tour where you are guaranteed to
see the bats since we boarded a riverboat at 7:15 at
Landry's and didn't get to the top of the river until 8:45
missing the bats. An official bat tour would guarantee
you to see the bats. Nonetheless, LOVED your site and
have already recommended it to others. Thanks for
providing this for us tourists.
I give suggestions of what
to see and, most importantly, what not to see. Which hotels to
stay in and which to avoid. I'll
tell you at which restaurants the locals go to eat and where we wouldn't be caught
dead. And, as a native, I know well the downtown area, the tourist
attractions and the Riverwalk; so I'll steer you away from the
not so safe areas.
Stop! Wait just one moment! Slow down. Let me
guess, you are google searching for San Antonio information and somehow
stumbled upon my site. This site is not easy to find as the
competition for the words "San Antonio" is terrific. Now that
you're here go get a cup of coffee, put on something comfortable and sit
back and peruse the site. You don't need to go anywhere else.
I've got everything covered here that you will want or need. So
quit your speed reading through the web and just relax for a moment.
There's a whole lot to see, read about and absorb in this web site.
I've made it as complete as possible, a one stop shop. If you
can't find reference to something here, it's just not worth doing.
Really, don't waste any more time searching for info on the web.
Every link necessary is found here. And, if you
have any questions, no matter how far out they are, post them on my ask
me any question bulletin board. I, or perhaps someone else, will answer them there.
So let's dig in: Here's some links to start you off:
