Great tour!!

We loved this tour. Domingo was our guide and he was great. He was on time for pick up and we were pleasantly surprised that the tour was in a van versus a bus. We were able to meet new people! We never felt rushed at any of the stops. My favorite was Luchenbach, but all of the hill country is beautiful!! We would definitely like to do this again some time.

Specific takeaways: LBJ’s contributions to education originating from that one room schoolhouse, Jose’s ability to read the group and personalize the tour, the charm of Luchenbach, value of farmers in our nation’s history

Our tour guide/driver José Y. was excellent. His commentary was interesting, kept everyone engaged, and was accommodating to our interests. We never felt rushed at any of our stops. I particularly enjoyed the NPS Visitors’ Center at the LBJ Boyhood home displaying a timeline and history of LBJ’s life and accomplishments. Although neither the Home itself or the house at the ranch were not open inside, it’s still well worth visiting.

Our family of 7 (including 2 children - 6yr & 9yr) had an amazing time on this tour! I was a little hesitant to book such a long trip, but it truly flowed so nicely and the kids were always entertained. Our driver, Victor, was so nice and knowledgeable! He kept everyone engaged and always checked in to make sure we were comfortable. We will definitely be recommending this tour to friends and family!! Thank you so much for an amazing day in Texas Hill Country! We learned a lot and took home so many family memories!

The tour guide, Herbert, was excellent. Very friendly and well informed, it was a joy to be in his company. Both my wife and I learned so many facts from Herbert about the Hill Country.

Not worth money

The reservation and pickup at hotel were perfect. Gray line advertising states optional tour of Texas White House was included in the price. Closed due to COVID. Don’t understand why we could not stop and see LBJ cemetery and get out and walk the grounds of Texas White House. Originally told we would be back at 4:30 pm to San Antonio. Dropped off at 3:15 pm. Could have spent the additional time at Fredericksburg after touring museum. Another stop was dropped from tour due to traffic. Solution should have been more time in Fredericksburg.

Hello, we appreciate your feedback on our Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Options. We make accommodations to pick up all downtown guests, so we are glad that is working properly. While we have had to make adjustments to our itinerary due to covid 19, in the What To Expect section of the tour page we state that as of August 3, 2018, and until further notice, guided tours of the interior of the “Texas Whitehouse” are cancelled per the National Park Service due to needed repairs. Length of the tour varies on number of guests and if those guests want the full amount of time at each of the stops- our Gray Line Tour Guides try and make accommodations. We strive to provide 5 star tours, as evident by our Badge of Excellence on our tour page. If you would like to provide additional feedback, please reach out to us at sanantonio@grayline.com"

We did not know what to expect on this your. Perry was our guide and he was awesome. We learned so much about LBJ and Hill Country history from Perry. I can not say enough good things about him. We will definitely use aviator again and request Perry as our guide.

LBJ tour

Domingo was a great guide. We really weren’t sure what the tour was going to be when we signed up but we’re pleasantly surprised. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of the hill country. We never felt rushed. LBJ childhood home through his President years and death was a wonderful glimpse of the man and his foundation. I will be back in March with a group of friends and definitely will sign up for another tour

Thank you for taking your time to write such a positive review. We truly appreciate you. When you come back I think you’ll enjoy either our San Antonio Missions UNESCO World Heritage Site Tour or our San Antonio Grand Historic City Tour, both five star tours.

LBJ ranch tour

This was one of our favorite adventures yet! Perry, our very knowledgeable tour guide kept us all engaged and we shared some good laughs. Our favorite part of the tour was the LBJ ranch. There is so much history and beauty on that land, I’m sad we could only stay a short time. We are very appreciative of the experience we gained. We look forward to booking with greyline more in the near future!
