A pub crawl/boutique walking tour of downtown San Antonio that incorporates stops in historic and unique bars and taverns. The tour features the history of the bars as well as the general history of the area and stops in each bar long enough to...more
This was an activity planned by our friends. We don't go to bars for fun and we don't actually drink very much. But you don't have to be a bar person or a drinker to enjoy this tour! It is actually more of a history...More
Sure it's a great concept but it takes a real master storyteller like Emzy to make it the magical experience it is. There is nothing he doesn't know about San Antonio and every question I had (and I had a lot) was answered with ease...More
I first took this tour in 2015 and I've been talking it up and recommending it to friends ever since. When we scheduled a conference in San Antonio this year, I knew we had to find a way to do it again! Whenever my company...More
Great time with family & friends! Visited 3 bars. Emzy was knowledgeable, entertaining, & kind. Emzy played to our quirkiness and good humor. EAT before the walk. The best was Emzy's interaction with the group. Tour was too long. 2 to 3 hours instead of...More
My husband and and I had an AMAZING time on this tour! We were really just expecting to walk to a few bars and have drinks. This tour is SO MUCH MORE than you can even imagine! Emzy provided us an entertaining evening full of...More
I really didn't know what to expect. I had friends coming in from out of town and wanted to do something fun. Everyone really enjoyed the tour. Emzy was incredibly knowledgeable and had facts and pictures to back up everything he was saying. The bartenders...More
My husband and I did the BarvWalk with Emzy last night. We had a great time! So much more than just going to cool bars. He was so well prepared and has a way of conveying all this great detail in a conversational manner. So...More
Myself and my boyfriend did the Barwalk with Emzy a couple of weeks back, we had such a great night! He went way beyond what we expected in his attention to detail in the stories he told and facts he knew. We visited 4/5 bars...More
We walk about a mile in total, hitting a bar every three blocks or so the distance usually isn’t an issue. We do a fair amount of standing but I am very mindful of accommodating any mobility issues and I have taken... More
We walk about a mile in total, hitting a bar every three blocks or so the distance usually isn’t an issue. We do a fair amount of standing but I am very mindful of accommodating any mobility issues and I have taken out several tours with 70+ year olds. Hope this helps.

As others have mentioned, you pay for your own drinks on top of tour price. It's a great opportunity to try the bar's specialty. In a couple of places the bartender crafted us a special drink based on your favourite... More

However, you don't need to buy a drink at each place. For that matter you don't even have to drink at all. Much/most of the value of the experience is hearing the history of the bar, its architecture, or stories about events which have happened there and just soaking up the atmosphere. If you are travelling with others, you can also just share a drink at each place to try a bunch of interesting cocktails without getting tipsy.
