Very informative tour!!
, Mar 2020
The trip was presented very well. Our guide was Gary. He was excellent. He was very informative. His personal experience as a working cowboy, added to the tour. His tidbits of local knowledge was extremely interesting and added to the enjoyment of the tour.

Gary was very knowledgeable and personable. I loved that he was a roper and rancher and that authentically his heritage was Germanic. This tour is worth every penny!!!

We had a wonderful time on this tour with Ray. He was one of the best tour guides we've had. We enjoyed every stop (LBJ Ranch, Fredericksburg, Luckenbach, Sisterdale and Johnson City). Not only was Ray a patient driver, but he was very informative and funny the entire time. He took the time to learn our names and gave us a lot of personalized assistance. He definitely enhanced what was already a fun itinerary. Thanks for the fun day, Ray!

We are so glad that you had a great experience! Ray and all of our guides are wonderful. Come back and see us and try our San Antonio Grand Historic City Tour (with 60+ sites) or our new San Antonio Missions UNESCO World Heritage Site tour. Thanks for taking the time to submit a review, we appreciate you and your feedback is very important to us and our Guides.
Beautiful scenery

While our driver was great, the company tries to cramp too many things in so you don't see enough of LBJ ranch or Nimitz museum They need to cut out Lukenbach and winery. Winery was too short a visit and no tour. We were rushed through LBJ and Fredericksburg museum and town.

Thanks for taking the time to submit your review. Sorry you did not like Luckenbach, that is the most popular of our stops and people usually love a quick visit of the little winery on the return trip. There is a lot to see in one day, and the Nimitz and War of the Pacific can take one or two days if you have that amount of time. Please come back and see us and we will try and make special arrangements for you to spend more time at the places you would like to spend more time at, just let reservations know your name and previous travel date.
Great tour.

Gary was great. Outstanding. We would follow him on any tour. My wife is born and raised in Texas but we live in NC. This was my first time visiting Texas. Gary was very knowledgeable, friendly and humorous. Highly recommend. Thank you Gary.

Highly recommended - Great tour and guide!

One of the best group tours out there. Our guide (Gary) really knew the ropes, and obviously loved sharing his knowledge of the sights and our group really appreciated his enthusiasm. The pace and locations were perfect: LBJ childhood home and exhibits, his Ranch/National Historic Site, lunch and exploring Fredericksburg, and listening to live music in Luckenback. The only disappointment was the wine tasting; expensive and rude service. Overall it's a great way to safely see the area with a local, friendly guide!

We enjoyed the tour, but LBJ house was not available to tour. This was not stated until we were on tour. I didn't feel enough time was offered in Fredericksburg, skip the winery. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The driver went very, very fast. We should have said something. Several of us commented about this later. We sat in the very back and bounced around horribly. I have back issues and this was very uncomfortable.
The tour and the tour guide was great...

The tour and the tour guide was great. LBJs boyhood home and the Texas White House was outstanding. Learned a great deal and enjoyed every one of the stops. I recommend this Texas hill country tour to anyone who enjoys history and seeing new places.
