Cowboys, music legends, and a former president are just a few of the historical characters featured in a full-day tour into Texas Hill Country. The extensive itinerary takes you to Lyndon B. Johnson's former home, followed by a scenic journey through wine country. Visit the historic German town of Fredericksburg, where you can dine at a typical biergarten, enjoy a wine tasting, or pick up souvenirs (all at own expense).
