  • The actual tour of the LBJ Ranch was very good but I rate it only a three because we were hoping to get some information or stories from the driver but he didn't say a word on the entire drive to and from the ranch. The actual date that we went was Feb 20 because they didn't have enough people to go on the 19th.

  • We were fortunate Joanne and Tish to have our tour guide, jim mcduffie, as our personal tour guide with only two of us on tour. Jim was very informative and knowledgable, as well as personable. We started out in Fredericksburg and visited the war museum and saw the sights and then went to the LBJ Ranch......very interesting. We would recommend this tour and any future tourists will be lucky to have Jim as their tour guide.
    Thank you

  • I really enjoyed this tour, first of all the tour guide, Jim was awesome...I liked everything about this tour. To go back in history and to remind myelf that I lived in that era.....wow, how much things have changed!!!! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone who likes history.

  • We enjoyed our tour, the LBJ ranch and history is very interesting. Fredericksburg is a neat town, has good food and shopping opportunities. Our stop at the wildflower seed farm and also the Peach Haus were nice treats. Perry, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. This tour is well worth the money!

  • Edward was the guide and he knows his subject. We went where he said we would and he was most courteous to all, answered all the questions, is an excellent driver it was a great time of year to go to the hill country and LBJ's home.


  • Excellent trip and tour...but my Viator price included admission to Nemitz museum but tour guide said that was a mis print.

    That was unfair and I felt cheated

  • Great time, I will book a trip with Viator again.

  • Tour was fine - Fredricksburg was a yawn, but we enjoyed the LBJ ranch. It was annoying to have to wait in a hot line for 30 minutes after being picked up to get tickets for the tour, especially since we already had e-vouchers. Interface between Viator and local tour company needs to be improved.

  • We enjoyed this tour very much. First stop was the LBJ ranch. The bus driver drove us around the property and gave us a tour. We stopped at the family cemetery and also to view the Air Force Half of One, as they called it. The drive was nice and unlike other reviews I've read, we did drive through the small towns a good deal of the time. Photos are allowed inside the ranch, which was nice. On to Fredericksburg. We made a huge mistake by having lunch at Wheelers, which the driver recommended. I believe his recommendation was about saving time and not about the food. If you want to shop, go to Wheelers and be in and out in a decent amount of time. If not, try any restaurant with a German name and eat authentic. I wish we would have. They had some nice stores and I did make a purchase, but not enough time to see the museum.

  • Wonderful trip, LBJ ranch was unbelievable, same as I was when the President used it as the White house in the 60s, Government plane their to observe, a lot of history and plenty of beautiful spacious views, including animals being a working ranch. Tour in the house was done so well different tour guide in each part of the house. Trip to FREDERICKSBURG charming town dozens of shops and restaurant and the Nimitz and world war II museum. Driver was very knowledgeable.
