Get an insight into the glorious Battle of the Alamo by visiting the iconic Fortress accompanied by your personal audio guide! Please, note a free timed-entry ticket is required to visit the Alamo Complex. Reserve the ticket at the Alamo official website before you go. The complex has free (!) admission. By buying this audio tour, you don’t pay for your entry. However, you get an opportunity to explore the complex at your own pace, following the carefully planned route, seeing the best it has to offer, and listening to amazing stories. The most visited historical site in Texas, the Alamo Fortress, secures the history of the Texas Revolution and its breaking point – the 13-day battle at Mission San Antonio de Valero, now known as the Alamo. Learn the history of Texas's independence from Mexico by strolling amidst the ancient walls that witnessed the stiff battle of 200 Texian rebels against 1,500 Mexican soldiers. Start the tour in the Alamo Shrine, which played a key role in the battle and is still marked with the traces of the fight. Hear the story of James Bowie, William Travis, and Davy Crockett, who gave their lives defending the liberty of Texas. Alamo site showcases historical artifacts you will not see anywhere else. Tip: Plan your visit to see the free Musket Firing show every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 11:30 am and 2:00 pm (summer season)! Note! This audio tour is not affiliated with the Alamo Complex but is provided by an independent creator.
