  • It was a fun time. We all sat and had a good laugh. Everyone was really feeling really at ease. This is a really good travel agency for vacations. They are efficient. And they only need like one charge and you are good to go on your vacation. I wasn't too bad. Would suggest. Will be back.

  • As a tourist, this building along with it's fountain is eye catching from right across the Historical Main Plaza. It stands to be the Bexar Courthouse of the fourth largest County in Texas and the 19th largest County nationally. The building was built right before the 20th century and designed in a Romanesque Revival Style.
