The Basics

The Texas Hill Country offers a choose-your-adventure style of itinerary, depending on your interests. There are tours especially for wine lovers, taking you right into the heart of wine production in and around Fredericksburg, home of 50 wineries. If beer is more your style, spend an afternoon sampling craft brews in San Antonio. Take a day or two to explore San Antonio on a pass that includes various activities, including the Witte Museum, San Antonio Zoo, and San Antonio Museum of Art.

President Lyndon B. Johnson was born in Stonewall, a Hill Country town near Johnson City, and his sprawling estate is open for tours that provide insight into his life and presidency. Fold your tour into one that also gives you a sample of the area’s German roots, plus a stop in Luckenbach—made famous by singer Waylon Jennings.

Our tour guide, Loretta, was knowledgeable. At the end of the day, after being dropped off, I realized I left my purse on the van. I called Loretta & she kindly returned with my purse!

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Tour From San Antonio
LBJ seen as truly shaped from his roots. Disappointed as the drought has made the scenery drab and brown. Had been hoping to see wildflowers. Longer time needed in Fredericksburg. Could have skipped Luckenbach.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Tour From San Antonio
We had a great guide. Since we weren’t staying downtown, she volunteered to pick us up at a local Walmart which was on the way. This saved us time and searching for parking. She was informative and a very pleasant person. She highlighted a map for for Fredericksburg which was helpful. Enjoyable day!

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Stop
Domingo was a great guide, very knowledgeable. We were looking forward to the wine tasting, but it did not happen. Great tour though, not quite as advertised. Plenty of time at the stops to look and see.

See the LBJ Air Force One 1/2., the ranch was surprisingly modest for the statue of who the Johnsons were.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Stop
Our guide/driver was Loretta & she made this day trip so much fun! Picked up on time at our hotel, provided drinks/snacks on the van, & was very knowledgeable on the history of each stop. We loved LBJ’s childhood home stop! You couldn’t rent a car, buy gas, & hunt for these stops on your own for less than booking here & letting them take care of all the arrangements. Lunch in Fredericksburg was amazing & stopping at Luckenbach on a Saturday & hearing the musicians & shopping ended a perfect day. Would definitely recommend!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
