A Story Bigger Than Texas Guided Alamo Tour

Starting November 13, the Alamo will begin offering in-person guided tours to visitors again for the first time since March.

On the A Story Bigger Than Texas Guided Tour,  an Alamo Tour Guide will take visitors on a journey through history as they learn about the Alamo's 300-year history as a Spanish mission, U.S. Quartermaster warehouse, and the 13-day Battle of the Alamo in 1836. 

The guided tour spans the whole site, from the historic battlefield in Alamo Plaza to the interior of the Church, and the Alamo gardens, added in the early 20th century, with their Living History Encampment, as well as the special exhibits in Alamo Hall. The tour helps visitors not only learn about the events that led to the Battle of the Alamo, but why San Antonio was so important during the war for Texas Revolution.

Masks are required for all visitors and Alamo staff at all times, and guided tours will be limited to 10 people per group to allow for social distancing. Guided tours will be offered at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 1 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Each tour will last one hour. Tickets are $40 per adult, $30 per child. For military, tickets are $36 for adults, and $27 for children. Visitors can book their tours on today.
