We had just moved to TX in October and were anxious to visit the King Ranch, something we had heard about many times on vacations in the area. We decided to take the tour on the day after Thanksgiving, which was a great time to visit since it wasn't very busy. There are a couple of different tours, the agricultural tour and the house tour. We chose the agricultural tour which was absolutely fascinating. Our tour guides father worked on the ranch and she basically grew up playing on the ranch with the King children and the other staff so we had a little bit more of an inside look at the workings of the ranch and the family. I have to say that this is probably one of the most interesting & educational tours I have ever taken. There is so much history there and the ranch has contributed to so much in the agricultural world. I know that when we have company come to visit we certainly will be putting this on our list of places to see. Next time I'd also like to take the house tour.
