The Alamo Trolley Historic Tour I
We took such a tour with those red colored Trolley cabins which so much look like those Memphis-Trolleys! Gosh do I loved the rides in those Trolleys back in Memphis! Absolutely lovely! And if you take such a tour through and out of San Antonio, and you would get "TJ" as your "driver/tour guide" then a most interesting tour is promised anyway!
