Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Options

68 reviews
Making all the stops on this Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch tour would require renting a car, if you were planning your own trip. Avoid the hassle of car rental and driving on this tour that takes you to Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, a Texas Hill Country winery, and the German-influenced city of Fredericksburg. Plus, with guided and free-time portions, you get the best of both worlds.

Brought my 3-year-old grandson for a fantastic afternoon. most of the animals were so gentle in eating the food right out of our hands. We had squeals of laughter coming as the ostrich got closer and we threw the food out the window. It was a safe and paved road all the way around so no worries of getting stuck in the mud. The people inside were incredibly friendly and helpful. We got a little confused on which way to go but just meant we could see one pin twice because even though we went the wrong way, the staff directed us the right direction cheerfully! The animals look very well taken care of and it is definitely worth your time if you love to feed exotic animals. The babies were everywhere!

My fiancé and I came to the area for a weekend getaway without planning any activities in advance. We drove by the Exotic Resort Zoo and decided to check it out and I was so happy we did! There was an easy online ticket purchase and my trip inside the office when we arrived was quick. A simple form to fill out and then I grabbed the bags of food we had purchased and we were ready to go. I recommend you buy at least 2 bags of food for anyone who wants to hand feed lots of animals. Honestly, when we go back, I’ll probably buy 3. My fiancé was fine with just one. I was so excited to experience the up close interactions with so many animals and none were aggressive or intimidating. Although some could tell what a sucker I am so they jogged along side our truck for a bit. Hahaha I LOVED IT. We will definitely be coming back to bring our grandkids! Thanks for a great time!

I visited at least 3 times in 2020 and we were all happy. This is a nice place and my kids like it. My bad experience was only on 1/3/2021. We waited inside the car to get checked-in and no one came to help us. Secondly, I used to get free bags of animal food when I mention that I have a 15% discount coupon. This time I also had the coupon on my phone but they insisted that I have to have it printed. Since I bought the tickets online already, I ended up getting nothing and my kids were disappointed.

Thanks for visiting us time and time again! We really appreciate it. Our gift shop is currently open for check-ins. If a customer prefers curbside service during this time, there is signage outside indicating to call us and request so. You might have visited us before during the height of the pandemic when we were strictly curbside, which is not our typical operations. Additionally, our emailed coupon has to be printed because that is the only way we track it’s usage. It states that on the coupon itself. We apologize if one of our staff members honored a non-printed version before and caused any confusion. Lastly, we hope that you enjoyed the visit. Again, thanks for your business and we hope to see you again!

Came here with my family for a fun, safe, contactless activity. The person who checked us in tried to get us to come into the gift shop with her and she was not wearing a mask. Every day we are breaking records with COVID numbers, this is unacceptable. When we asked to remain outside the building she came out and stood a foot away from me with no mask on! Why couldn’t she at least put on a mask for the 70 seconds it takes to check somebody in and give them their bag of food. It felt unsafe and disrespectful.

We appreciate you visiting us and leaving some feedback! We apologize that you did not enjoy your check-in process. Nicole has an underlying condition that prevents her from wearing a mask for all ten hours of her work day. We are all responsible of making our own decisions regarding our health, and that is simply hers. However, she does respect our customers wishes when they ask her to put on a mask or to remain more distant during check-in. Additionally, our customers are responsible for their own health and well-being, therefor, if they’re uncomfortable, we expect them to voice it. Had Nicole known your discomfort, she definitely would have done anything in her power to keep you comfortable. Unfortunately, we cannot read our customer’s minds even though that would be real handy sometimes! We appreciate each and every one of our guests and do everything in our power to keep them happy when given the chance. Again, we sincerely apologize for your discomfort at check-in but hope that the drive-through experience was enjoyable!

There are so many amazing animals at this exotic zoo that you can literally see different animals every time you go. You must get food to hand feed the animals to get the full experience. So fun!!!
