We had a fantastic time with Capitan Ryan, his van was clean and warm (it was a chilly day), the tour was fun and informative and he took great photos of our party at some historic Fixer Upper homes. It was a memorable trip and he was so nice to have sent us all the photos he took as well as some recommendations for restaurants and wine bars that we wanted to visit in the short time we were there. We highly recommend this tour!

We ended up booking this tour because we hadn't booked ahead of time and didn't realize most tours would be full, but boy are we glad we ended up on this tour with Captain Ryan! He was very friendly and accommodating. The tour was fun and informative. We visited sites of homes that Chip and Joanna flipped and other sites of interest related to them. We also got some general history and background of Waco. It was a great balance of information. We got out of the van several times for pictures-- which Ryan offered to take for our group every single time-- and to visit Jimmy Don's store, Harp Design and Magnolia, Joanna's first brick and mortar store. He provided plenty of time for us to shop and get photos. We also went to Cameron Park and went to Lover's Leap. We were so impressed with the park that we went back after the tour to explore it further. At the end of the tour we also made a stop at a candy store right by the silos and he treated us to some candy-- wonderful touch! I definitely recommend this tour and am confident that any tour by Ryan and the Waco River Safari & Tours will be informative, enjoyable and totally worth taking!

Our tour guide “Ryan” was friendly, Informative , knowledgeable on each of the Homes we stop. He was patient with our group of 9 ladies to allowed time for pictures and shopping. A tour worth taking for first time in Waco, Texas!

It was a good trip. There were people on the trip with little or no knowledge of Waco and various levels of experience with the fixer upper people of Waco. This could have been quite challenging but Captain Ryan made it interesting and enjoyable for all of us on the trip. I would highly recommend his tour to anyone traveling to the Waco/ Austin area. It was well worth the trip to join his tour and he was most accommodating of the current mobility issues I have due to recent surgery.
