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

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.

We had Diana Saenz as our tour guide. She was amazing and really went out of her way to make sure we had a great time. She was very knowledgeable and showed us where all the best attractions and places to see were. We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in Texas history and seeing that part of Texas!

Thanx to our tour guide Eve, we had the chance to visit the texan white house (L.B.Johnson's ranch), some very nice towns of the Texas hill country and have some useful information about Austin as well. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Texas and kind to all of us, always making sure that we were enjoying the trip etc Thank you so much Eve!!

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!
