Our family of 6 adults visited Waco for the "Magnolia" experience. I was the only fan of the show, so I booked this tour so the rest of the family could find out more about what Waco had to offer. Overall, I have to say this tour was a great experience and a great value as our entire family enjoyed it and learned so much about Waco today and its history. Our tour guides, Ben & Ross, were just the nicest people we met in Waco and it was obvious the tour company owners put a lot of thought into providing a quality tour. They took us to parts of the city we would have never known about, like Cameron Park, East Waco, and informed us about all sorts of revitalization projects going on all over the city. The fact that the guides made the effort to learn each guest's name and refer to them directly throughout the tour made it engaging and fun. We were still talking about the tour and all the stuff we learned at dinner and the next day on the ride home.

Also, since this trip was during the pandemic, I appreciated the fact that they required guests to wear masks for our protection. This was a deciding factor in booking.

I highly recommend this tour for any Waco visitor.

My wife and I have been blessed to have been able to travel quite a bit and although I will have to say that Waco itself is not one of my Top Places to visit, I will have to say that this tour (the staff) was one of the best tours, if not the best, that we have ever been on. Out of all the paid tours we have taken around the Country, Waco Tours (big shout out to Daniel & Ross) was fantastic. We have never experienced a tour with so much interaction and being called by our name repeatedly.... ever! Waco Tours Company and staff from the time you enter their office to the end of the tour is "The Real Deal". The personal touch, interaction, blessing at the beginning of the tour are Top Notch, no wonder they are rated high and receiving awards. The content and knowledge that our guides shared with us of the Waco Area was great. We would definitely recommend taking any of the tours that they offer, we took their River Cruise the following evening and it was great as well - I will write another review on that tour:) Highly Recommend Waco Tours!

Waco Tours was one of the best parts of our trip! Drake and Red, our tour guides, were hilarious, entertaining, and so knowledgeable. They were personable and intentional in conversations! We got to know history of the city that we wouldn’t have known otherwise and were able to hear about the restoration being done in Waco. The special treats along the way were a fun addition! Would highly recommend anyone to go on a tour, even if you don’t consider yourself a big fan of guided tours. You will love it!!

This tour was wonderful! We really enjoyed all that we learned about Waco and got to see a lot different parts of the city. We really enjoyed our two tour guides. They made the experience fun and memorable. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Waco for the first time or even frequent visitors that haven't done a city tour before.

Rebecca and Denise gave us the most delightful city tour we have ever experienced. They not only showed us points of interest and historic landmarks, but they made history come to life by “introducing” us to the godly citizens who sacrificed (and are still sacrificing!) to shape this city. We loved the unexpected treats, music entertainment, and special stops, but we are especially thankful for their contagious passion for Waco. Also, a huge thank you to the two families that began this tour company and their commitment to offer an A+ tour.
We were blessed.

We definitely enjoyed our tour, Liz and Jessica were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I will tell you there was a good deal of touring with a side of "cheese". They did some games and did a nice job of keeping people engaged.
I would say this tour is a must do...do it early in your vacay so you can get the coupon book and ideas for sites to visit. We enjoyed the Cameron Park Riverwalk.
Waco is up and coming and has a lot of new investment happening and this tour will help you see a lot of it.

Ben and Rebecca were incredibly entertaining and filled the 2.5 hour tour with laughter and singing while teaching us about all that makes Waco special. The entire staff of Waco Tours was so friendly and inviting. We would take the tour again at a future date.

Good balance of Waco history and Fixer Upper homes, information. We got rescheduled several times...our plane was delayed, not enough people signed up for tour. Waco Tours was very accommodating and communicated well regarding changes.
Comfortable van ride. Rachel and Tim (guides) were very pleasant and knowledgeable.
