Cool tour
Oct 2020
LBJ's ranch was beautiful and huge. Cows are allowed to roam freely on the property and one decided to block the road so we couldn't pass, but it was only for 5 minutes or so. Fredericksburg was fun, a lot of quaint and quirky shopping boutiques. Shout out to the Wild Hare Bistro. Their complimentary signature desert was amazing (scoop of ice cream, whipped cream, rum and cinnamon topping, I think). Luckenbach was a cool spot to hang out and listen to live music. Great time. If you don't do well site seeing during the travel times, then bring your phone or tablet to occupy your time (or a book). However, electrical plugs to keep your electronic devices charged are only found in the front seat, so you may want to think about bringing a charger as well. The tour guide was great and accommodating to bathroom breaks on the road and was knowledgeable about the areas.

Herbert did a great job juggling our schedule and navigating traffic. We almost ran over a maniac scooter rider who was not watching and ignore the lights ! I am 6'5" so the back rows of seats were *very* tight. Pro tip : make sure you call the tour operator up front and arrange your pickup - even check twice

Jose is a great tour guide
I had a wonderful day with Jose acting as a guide to Hill Country and LBJ sited. Jose was a tireless and knowledgeable guide. He’s has gotten me into LBJ and lady bird and history. I loved the whole thing. I think you get way more than your money’s worth. This is my 2nd tour with Gray Line which is an easy way to get an exceptional tour. This tour makes me want to come back to Texas many times again.

Great day out in the national park and LBJ White House!!
This was such a fun filled day. We drove around the city for about 30 mins and got a nice overview of some stuff, and then we headed out west of Austin to the hill country and what a beautiful day it was! The tour guide was a very nice lady who played a history tape along the way but also chatted along with the tourists on the drive. We played trivia and got to know each other. My favorite part was the LBJ national historic park and we got a very quick tour of the house LBJ grew up in as well as the visitors center where they played a short movie of his young days in Texas. The national park was very beautiful to drive through and I loved hearing the history of the LBJ White House (even though you couldn’t go inside cause of the renovations in May being done). We visited the school on the national park where LBJ singed the education bill. Then we had a lovely lunch in the city of Fredericksburg where we got to spend 2 hours in and see on foot by ourself. After that we swung by Luckenbach which has a hilarious history (it’s only got like 5 buildings and a bar) for a town. We got really lucky with the weather and it was a great day!! Highly recommend to see something special when you come to Austin and get outside the city and noise for a day. 😊

Entertaining and Educational ~ Our tour guide, Ray was GREAT!
Apr 2019 • Friends
The tour was fun and our tour guide, Ray went the extra mile to make sure we all had a good time and got the most out of our day. He has made it a point to point out special sites along our journey and added his humor along the way. We had a sing-a-long, personal introductions and interesting tidbits of history with chocolate treats for those answering trivia questions correctly. While the tour was great, the tour guide is what made our day delightful! My recommendation is to take the tour and request Ray, the Chief Experience Officer!
