Driver was very knowledgeable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

This was an excellent day trip with a very knowledgeable and funny guide. We are Canadian but we enjoyed the visit to the LBJ ranch very much. The Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg was just amazing but we had less than 2 hours, which is not nearly enough time. All in all, it was a great day.
