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 Tour From San Antonio
We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour with Loretta. She was very kind and knowledgeable. The group was small (4 people). Our favorite stops were Fredricksburg, LBJ’s Airforce 1 1/2, and Luckenbach. If you like to see the countryside, you will enjoy this tour.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Tour From San Antonio
What a great trip. We had a small group of 4 and Victor was our guide. The van was comfortable and he provided us ice cold water to stave off the Texas heat. He provided us choices along the way to customize our tour. We never felt rushed, plenty of bathroom breaks and loved the experience so much we booked the Missions tour for later in the week.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Options
Our family of 7 (including 2 children - 6yr & 9yr) had an amazing time on this tour! I was a little hesitant to book such a long trip, but it truly flowed so nicely and the kids were always entertained. Our driver, Victor, was so nice and knowledgeable! He kept everyone engaged and always checked in to make sure we were comfortable. We will definitely be recommending this tour to friends and family!! Thank you so much for an amazing day in Texas Hill Country! We learned a lot and took home so many family memories!

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Options
Domingo was a great guide. We really weren’t sure what the tour was going to be when we signed up but we’re pleasantly surprised. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of the hill country. We never felt rushed. LBJ childhood home through his President years and death was a wonderful glimpse of the man and his foundation. I will be back in March with a group of friends and definitely will sign up for another tour

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Options
This was one of our favorite adventures yet! Perry, our very knowledgeable tour guide kept us all engaged and we shared some good laughs. Our favorite part of the tour was the LBJ ranch. There is so much history and beauty on that land, I’m sad we could only stay a short time. We are very appreciative of the experience we gained. We look forward to booking with greyline more in the near future!

The trip was presented very well. Our guide was Gary. He was excellent. He was very informative. His personal experience as a working cowboy, added to the tour. His tidbits of local knowledge was extremely interesting and added to the enjoyment of the tour.

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”).
