San Antonio Group Tour Highlights
The Alamo began as the San Antonio de Valero, a Spanish Mission, in 1718, and one of the first in Texas. The establishment of this mission played a crucial role in the settlement of Texas and the Southwest. The Alamo church has been designated a shrine by the State of Texas and, as such, is a place of reverence and reflection.
IMAX “Alamo – The Price of Freedom” is a 45-minute docudrama about the 13-day siege and fall of the Alamo. Watch the battle unfold, where 189 defenders fought and died for the cause of Texas liberty.
Fort Sam Houston was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1975 and is one of the Army’s oldest installations. Fort Sam Houston boasts a large collection of historic structures with more than 900 buildings. Even more consequential than the numbers is the historical integrity of the post’s different sections which represent different eras of construction. The first soldier arrived here in 1845.
Known as the “Queen of the Missions”, Mission San José is the largest of the missions and was almost fully restored to its original design in the 1930s by the WPA (Works Projects Administration). Spanish missions were not churches, but communities, with the church the focus. Mission San José shows the visitor how all the missions might have looked over 250 years ago.

Settled by German immigrants, the district represents their achievements as they prospered and built opulent homes and mansions. Among the homes, several are notable for their architectural style.
