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.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Options
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.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Tour From San Antonio
Enjoyed the tour. Wish there was more time in Fredericksburg. After having lunch there was only 30 minutes to enjoy the town. Loretta was a great tour guide. She provided a lot of information for each stop. She had cold water and snacks on board the bus for the passengers.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Options
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.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Tour From San Antonio
We were only in the area a short time and this was a great way to see the highlights of the TX Hill Country. LBJ Ranch park and TX White House was more interesting than I would have imagined. Learned about the German heritage with Fredericksburg and the music venue of historical Lucenbach topped off with a wine tasting. Loretta was a great guide and driver on our small Grayline vehicle, which are my favorite.

Domingo the tour guide, made our trip especially nice as he was very friendly and informative. You find out so many more facts about LBJ when you go on a tour than if you would have went by yourself.

When to Get There

You can explore the Hill Country year-round, as it benefits from temperate weather most of the year. Summer months are the hottest, and snow is possible in winter. Spring starts as early as February, with peak tourism months in March and April, and is a lovely time to see the wildflowers, which sprawl across fields and even along roadsides.

Is Your Dance Card Full?

The Texas Hill Country is home to some of the oldest dance halls in Texas. You can find one of them in Luckenbach, right next to the tiny post office and bar. The oldest is considered to be Gruene Hall, located in the quaint Hill Country town of Gruene (pronounced “green”).
