This is a great tour of Branson and surrounding areas. Our driver, Michael, was informative, easy to talk to and knew a lot about Branson and its history. The van was very comfortable and cool. We love to take tours everywhere we travel. We would recommend this one!

I've never experienced a more comprehensive tour by any other company. I've been to all 48 states and this company has to be the best there is in providing you the true taste and feel of a town. The history and all the important sites one never knew existed in Branson you get to see. Joe and staff are outstanding in their work but exceptionally nice people.

I don't even know what to say to this amazing review. I am nearly blushing! I do LOVE being a tour guide, and LOVE where I get to be that tour guide. Me and the other guides all feel the same way, and we take our job very seriously, but we make it fun too. Thank you for the very humbling review and for being such a wonder guest. I look forward to seeing you again sometime! God bless! Joe

Very disappointed, we stopped at the fish hatchery, but we didn’t get out to feed the fish which didn’t take a lot of time,( we went back later), we stopped at and RV park along the lake and stayed for a few minutes while he talks and we could have listened to that while riding. The time would have been better spent at the hatchery!! A lot of time was spent driving when the entire tour could have been done in half the time. I had a hard time staying awake. It could have been shorter and less expensive. None of would recommend the tour and it became a joke all week when someone would ask what your favorite thing that we did was, or if we were looking for something to do, we’d say “how about a tour of Branson.”

Thank you for touring with us and for your review. The Discover Branson History and Scenic Tour covers over 30 miles and takes 3+ hours. I am sorry you were disappointed about not getting to stop at the trout hatchery. Trust me, I wish we could stop and go in multiple places, in addition to the places we do stop and go in. But if we did, the tour would be 4 or 5 hours long, and you and everyone else probably would be falling asleep! LOL Thank you again! How about a tour of Branson?

Bob was very knowledgable and took us places we had never learned about as we were preparing to come to Branson. We learned about places to eat, and additional places we might want to visit if we have time or come again. He was very friendly and made the day fun and informative. Than you Bob, it was a great tour!!

Took the 4 hour tour in the morning with Dan - have to say it was definitely worth the time and money. Hearing about the history of Branson, how it came to be and went through various changes, then seeing the sights in surrounding area was a pleasant change to visiting the typical shows/museums. Dan was very knowledgeable, pleasant and accommodating. Even if you've been to Branson many times, this is something worth doing to get the history.

I did not want to rent a car in Branson but wanted to see some of the outlying areas like the College of the Ozarks and Table Rock Dam and Shepherd of the Hills locale. I also wanted to drive through Branson, see the sights and learn the history. This tour ticked all the boxes for me and I highly recommend that you take this tour as you won’t be disappointed. VIP Tours gave prompt and professional communication when I contacted them. Special shout- out to Dan who was my guide and was so interesting and informative.

Bob our guide did a fantastic job of presenting the history of the city and local attractions in the area. He is extremely knowledgeable and presents the information in a very easy to remember manor. We would do another with them if we were here longer.
