What you'll do

In so many words, Drink Up The History! On this condensed version of our Classic tour, we will take a stroll through Alamo Plaza for a comprehensive look at the history of the Alamo and the Texas Revolution. Next we will follow in the footsteps of legends in the historic Menger Hotel bar – you will share the space where Teddy Roosevelt recruited many of his Rough Riders. With drink in hand we will take an in depth tour through the oldest hotel west of the Mississippi. After discussing the rich and varied history of this classic San Antonio establishment we will take a look into another of San Antonio’s most historic bars and explore the associated history. Warm welcomes, prompt service, heavy pours and exclusive access await you all while you learn history not found on any other tour. * food & beverages not included

Emzy

A San Antonio native I have been researching and guiding guests through my hometown for twenty years. Despite my experience or perhaps because of it, I strive to less of a "tour guide" and more of just a genuine guy with a passion who you would would want to have a drink (or 4) with. I will not greet you in a period piece costume carrying a "ghost meter" or a PA. I cannot promise you a ghostly experience. I am just a guy and I dress accordingly. What I can promise you is authenticity and that I will be well prepared to prove the validity of the stories that I tell. Cheers
