Texas Hill Country and LBJ Tour From San Antonio
Discover the rolling orchards and historic towns of Texas Hill Country with a full-day tour from San Antonio that includes the essential Lyndon B. Johnson sites. See the former President’s boyhood home at the bucolic LBJ Ranch, and enjoy a tour of his 'Texas White House.' Learn how cowboys and German migrants shaped the Texas landscape, and explore Fredericksburg at your own pace with time to shop and eat. Explore the heritage of country music in Luckenbach, then sample wine (additional fee) at a local vineyard as you return to San Antonio.
What to Expect
Travel along the beautiful, scenic backroads of the Texas Hill Country, with a brief stop at the Johnson City Visitor Center and boyhood home of LBJ. Only a short distance away is the town of Stonewall, the peach capital of Texas and home to the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site. Enjoy a tour of the LBJ Ranch, located along the picturesque Pedernales River.

During your tour, you will discover how the German migration of the 1840s and 1850s influenced the development of this picturesque area. You will hear about the role of the Texas cowboy and the great cattle drives from South Texas to mid-western markets, and you'll learn about the legacies of both LBJ—America’s 36th President—and Lady Bird, his beloved wife.

We will stop for a break in Johnson City at the National Park Services’ Visitor Center and Boyhood Home of President LBJ.

After our brief stop in Johnson City, we will head west to tour the beautiful LBJ Ranch and Texas White House on the Pedernales River.

After the LBJ Ranch, we will head further west and discuss the development of the Texas wine industry as we drive through Texas vineyards on our way to the old German town of Fredericksburg, where you will have 1 to 2 hours of time on your own. If you prefer, you can shop and eat lunch at an authentic German biergarten or visit one of the many wine tasting roooms. You can visit the Nimitz Museum & National Museum of the Pacific War. This Fredericksburg part of the tour is flexible, so you can do whatever pleases you!

From Fredericksburg we will drive past more vineyards on our way to legendary Luckenbach, Texas—where "everybody’s somebody." We will stop and take in the storied musical history of the colorful town of Luckenbach, made world-famous by Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P Nunn, Hondo Crouch, and many more artists and colorful characters.

After Luckenbach, we will take a scenic route through the Texas Hill Country, through Sisterdale and its Sister Creek Winery, through another quaint German town of Boerne, and then on back to San Antonio.

**Important Note: Starting 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. However, guests can still explore the LBJ Ranch grounds, view exhibition pieces and artifacts in the  JetStar Hangar, watch an award-winning 14-minute film, and get a picture with LBJ’s infamous JetStar aka “Air Force One-Half”.

If you stop at the wineries, you will have to pay to taste their wines; all other admissions on our tour with Ray were taken care of.
