In the saga of Texas history, no era is more distinctive and accented by epic events than Texas' struggle for independence, and no battle is more legendary than The Battle of the Alamo. Journey through the days leading up to this historic battle as we explore Mission Concepción, the site of the first significant engagement of the revolution; pause for a moment of remembrance at San Fernando Cathedral, where Santa Anna raised the red flag of "no quarter"; take in an amazing diorama depicting the Alamo battle at The Briscoe Western Art Museum, and engage with an Alamo Historian during our private tour of The Alamo, after the site closes for the day.
Travel the historical path that would lead Texans to stand their ground for independence and pay the ultimate price for their freedom.
Meals will be on your own at Buc-ee's and the Rivercenter Mall.
Ticket includes transportation and museum fees. Maximum tickets: 48
