Overview
Perhaps one of my reviews says it best: "Taking The Barwalk with Emzy is like visiting an old friend in his hometown and having him show you around." The Classic route is the ultimate way to explore and discover the very best of San Antonio. No scripts, no PA's and no costumes, just warm welcomes, prompt service and heavy pours await us as you leave the large groups of kitschy tours behind and enjoy the ultimate insider way to discover the absolute best of San Antonio. From the Alamo, the oldest saloon in Texas and the oldest continually operated hotel in the west you'll skip the ubiquitous franchises and follow in the footsteps of legends. Less of a regimented, memorized tour and more of a conversation you'll learn about everything from the Alamo, grisly unsolved murders, pop culture connections and the "seedier" side of and enjoy unrivaled historical research in a truly magical night all washed down with the best cocktails anywhere. Food & beverages not included in price.

Was the only one for the tour but got shown more in depth than most tours in the area and was easier to get around at night for it, with each stop a decent story.

History, mystery, a little pop culture, and cocktails! Emzy is a great tour guide and took us to places we would have never found on our own and pointed out so many things we wouldn't have noticed with his guidance. He has an expansive knowledge of San Antonio history and

Best time we had in SA. Emzy knows his stuff and is great company as well as extremely knowledgeable of local history myth and lore and is wise enough to know the difference.

The Guide Emzy was a hoot and a wealth of knowledge. I did think the drink prices were a little high though.

Emzy was our guide and as there was just two of us he could tailor the tour information to meet our interest areas.
