Tour Itinerary

We will pick up at the North Entrance of the Henry B. González Convention Center (900 E Market St, San Antonio, TX 78205). Buses will begin loading at 11:45 AM and will Depart at 12:00 PM

The World Heritage site is comprised of five missions (Mission San Antonio de Valero – commonly known as the Alamo, Mission San José, Mission Concepción, Mission San Juan and Mission Espada). These five missions represent the largest concentration of Spanish colonial missions in North America and have been named a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

UNESCO encourages the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and national heritage around the world. To be chosen as a World Heritage Site, the missions had to meet demanding selection criteria that verified their historic importance. This rare honor has been bestowed upon only 23 sites in the United States. The missions are the first World Heritage Site in Texas.

This truly is a gem of a tour!
