Great time, I will book a trip with Viator again.
We enjoyed this tour very much. First stop was the LBJ ranch. The bus driver drove us around the property and gave us a tour. We stopped at the family cemetery and also to view the Air Force Half of One, as they called it. The drive was nice and unlike other reviews I've read, we did drive through the small towns a good deal of the time. Photos are allowed inside the ranch, which was nice. On to Fredericksburg. We made a huge mistake by having lunch at Wheelers, which the driver recommended. I believe his recommendation was about saving time and not about the food. If you want to shop, go to Wheelers and be in and out in a decent amount of time. If not, try any restaurant with a German name and eat authentic. I wish we would have. They had some nice stores and I did make a purchase, but not enough time to see the museum.
Wonderful trip, LBJ ranch was unbelievable, same as I was when the President used it as the White house in the 60s, Government plane their to observe, a lot of history and plenty of beautiful spacious views, including animals being a working ranch. Tour in the house was done so well different tour guide in each part of the house. Trip to FREDERICKSBURG charming town dozens of shops and restaurant and the Nimitz and world war II museum. Driver was very knowledgeable.
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.
Had a great time, Tour was nice, bus was clean, driver informative. LBJ ranch was a blast from the past, learned things I did not know. Ate fabulous homemade German food at Der Lindenbaum in Fredericksburg, the potato salad and sauerkraut were especially delightful. The National Museum of the Pacific War was hands down one of the best museums I have visited in a long time. My only complaint was that there were no benches to sit and contemplate the displays. We spend 1.5 hrs there and wished we had another hour.
Tour was fine - Fredricksburg was a yawn, but we enjoyed the LBJ ranch. It was annoying to have to wait in a hot line for 30 minutes after being picked up to get tickets for the tour, especially since we already had e-vouchers. Interface between Viator and local tour company needs to be improved.

FRDERICKSBURG IS NOT A TOWN BUT A TOURIST STRIP WITH A HIGH VOLUME 8 LANE STREET. MIOST OVERRATED "TOWN" IN TEXAS. ALTHOUGH THIS TRIP WAS THRU HILL COUNTRY THE FREEWAYS WERE TAKEN INSTEAD OF THE COUNTRY ROADS WICH IS OF COURSE DISAPOINTING. THIS TRIP INCLUDES THE OPTION OF GOING TO THE JOHNSON RANCH OR A WINE TOUR. WHY NOT DO BOTH? THIS TRIP WOULD BE SO MUCH BETTER IF IT WAS EXPANDED TO ABOUT 12 HOURS AND INCLUDED A DRIVE ON COUNTRY ROADS THRU HILL COUNTRY, A VIST TO A CAVE SUCH AS NATURAL CAVERNS CAVE, AND A VISIT AND IDEALLY A CONCERT AT NEARBY LUCKENBACK TEXAS WHICH IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST, NO LONGER OFERRED ON THE TRIP. THIS IS A TRIP WORTH DOING BUT IT COULD BE SO MUCH BETTER.
