There is no charge or need to register; just be outside the Visitor Center at tour time if you want to attend. The tour does not enter the church, but you can do that on your own either before or after the tour. Mission San José typically opens at 9 AM.

Tours of the Mission Concepción grounds are conducted on weekends at 10 AM and 1:30 PM.

Rancho de las Cabras in Floresville, Texas, is also part of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, and the only way to see it is on a guided tour.
