German Food and LBJ Ranch
Dianna_L
, May 2022
The tour included the LBJ Ranch and home he grew up in and that was wonderful. Were disappointed that the ranch house was being renovated and could not go in. We enjoyed the singing at the Luckerbuck, but it was not long enough. Loved Fredicksburg but was too short as well. Had a wonderful German lunch at the Ratskeller. Our only disappointment was the stop at the winery. This place was terrible. Of all the vineyards in the area this was certainty not the best. Was a waste of 30 minutes. We loved our tour guide, Lorretta. She is a skilled driver and had lots of information to help make our trip enjoyable.

LBJ seen as truly shaped from his roots. Disappointed as the drought has made the scenery drab and brown. Had been hoping to see wildflowers. Longer time needed in Fredericksburg. Could have skipped Luckenbach.

We had a great guide. Since we weren’t staying downtown, she volunteered to pick us up at a local Walmart which was on the way. This saved us time and searching for parking. She was informative and a very pleasant person. She highlighted a map for for Fredericksburg which was helpful. Enjoyable day!

See the LBJ Air Force One 1/2., the ranch was surprisingly modest for the statue of who the Johnsons were.

We felt more time was needed for the LBJ section of the tour. The Luckenbach visit could have been eliminated.

We appreciate your feedback. Our sightseeing tour is not just a tour of the LBJ Ranch. It is a highlights tour of all the gems the Texas Hill Country has to offer, which does include Fredericksburg, Luckenbach, and Johnson City, and we do list the amount of time we spend at each stop in the itinerary of the tour page.
