I arranged this 6-day trip to relax my mind and get my attention off of my daily work routine. It was one of the best decisions of my life. The tour service organized the 6-day trip very efficiently and with great skill. We traveled around the cities in the private shuttle service provided by the tour service. The tour guide was in uniform and professional with everything. He explained to us the history of various places that we visited as well as informative facts about them. The hotel was also a luxury. Overall the whole trip was comfortable and I really enjoyed my experience with this tour service. I would recommend this 6-day tour experience to anyone. Nothing could be better than to escape to wild Texas for a vacation. We planned a 6-days trip. We made a list of plans packed our luggage and decided to take the airplane to Dallas. We were welcomed by a tourist guide who took us to the Ramada Hotel which was a treat. We traveled to various places but the most mesmerizing was the Houston city and we enjoyed Maple leaves beauty and Natural Caverns.
I planned to visit the top-notch places in the south with my colleagues. The tourist service we contacted arranged a well-organized trip. We reached Dallas on an airplane and was picked up by a tour guide. The shuttle service dropped us at the Ramada hotel. Our tour started with full Dallas city tour. it was winter season so vibrant colors were treating to the eyes viewed best at Hermann Park. The tour to George Ranch was marvelous. I strongly recommend visiting here because it offers enjoyment for everyone like fishing, golfing, kayaking, swimming, water skiing, hiking, biking and many other varieties of recreation. Basically, there was so much to do on this bus for any person of any sort of taste. For me and my family, we enjoyed at the San Antonio, although it was guided tour we still managed to sneak around for while and do our own thing. Overall, it was wonderful with all the great facilities and tour services a traveler would ever need.
I don’t see the point of spending so much at the Alamo Mission place. Although our tour guide told u so much about the historical war which held at the same place, and there were displays of that time at the site. Glad, we explored the Dallas city the way wanted because that city is bustling with many activities and there is the specific culture of the people of Dallas. My husband suggests us to have the famous Texas Steak meal, so we went to the special Texas BBQ restaurant and tasted all the great cuisines, which was really nice. We could see the rodeo-style culture, and it truly gave us something different as per we were still in the United States, I love the cowboys, yet there is still a massive number of people who still follow the historical cowboy culture in Texas. It was great to tour but it could have been a lot better!
while we were already in the Texas state, and my relatives suggest that there is no tour of Texas without visiting the Fort Worth city, rather our tour tea choose to spend more time in the Houston which was absolutely worth it. The best time we had on this bus tour was at the Houston city where we spent complete two days and explored it to the fullest. One thing I like about this bus tour was this amazing dolphin sightseeing tour, which was unique for tour experience for us, the boat cruise headed in the center of playful dolphins, first I felt some sort of danger from those gigantic animals but then the guiding person call the dolphins towards and the moment was such an enchanting one. I love the way the team delivered this tour with respect to their passengers, and they managed this bus tour so well, that they dropped us back to the airport for free just so we could take a flight back to our hometown, personally I think it was the best tour experiences for me and my crew on board. Love the team!
I wasn’t sure in the start of the bus tour that my kids are going to make to the end or not they already seemed to get pretty lazy and exhausted on the first day. The tour guide did a great job enticing all the visitors with great information and guidance. We spend the first day of the bus trip in the Dallas and visiting all the most popular sites there, but we discovered a slightly different culture of Texas in the Dallas city and that city has grown so fast over the years. I tried to show my kids the charms of the Texas state and hopefully, we had so many wonderful stops on the course of this bus tour, which kept us entertained and excited. One thing I don’t like or appreciate about the bus tours, not this bus tour but for all the bus tours, that we don’t have that personal freedom to go anywhere and do anything we wanted since we had to stick with tour crew, and one thing is true that this bus tour is one great package of fun with so many places to explore and millions of things to do. I definitely board another bus tour on our next vacations, maybe someplace more magical the next time. Thank you, guys!
it was lovely being part of the bus tour which I thought I would never experience in my life. On the other hand, we just wanted to see what is so special about the cowboy culture in Texas, and thankfully we explore the best places in Dallas, Houston, including the raging fun at the San Antonio was quite the sort of thing we were looking for. Our tour hosting person was nice person who had been an amazing help throughout the course of our bus journey. Thanks for dropping us off the airport of the Dallas.
Cheers to everyone on the bus, I made some good friends while enjoying beautiful nights at the San Antonio. This tour was an exciting experience for me, I was hesitated at first but our tour guide, Mary. She was a funny and intelligent person, I quickly felt more comfortable. Hotels were also comfortable and the tour was executed perfectly on time. Although, I wish they add more time for San Antonio.
This year my family planned a bus trip to see the best of Dallas, Houston, and Austin, San Antonio. The tour service was efficient and picked up on time from the Dallas airport. The tour guide spoke English very efficiently and free shuttle service dropped us to comfort Inn hotel which was a luxury. The next day we visited San Antonio and the scenes were breathtaking. We also went to the Dolphin Tour which was the best part of this tour. We were a bit hindered by rain and cold weather. We went to the space center and drove through the rocket park which we found awesome with unforgettable scenes. I strongly recommend this bus trip but must leave with proper shoes and jackets. The tourist guide was very friendly and provided us with all the information and guided us about shopping. I strongly recommend visiting here in small groups because it then offers more enjoyment.
We are an Indian family visiting the US for the first time, it has been an enthralling experience for us. I researched about this agency before booking a tour, they seem to have most reasonable prices among other competitive websites. This tour offers a beautiful experience of the Jazz of New Orleans and the cool water particles splashing on your face on the cruise. Overall, it was a good experience for us.
Taking a week off from the work came out really handy when we had our tickets booked for this tour. Despite all the great places we get to tour in the Texas state, but also, it feels important to mention the great services provided by the management. We stayed in great hotels and the bus tour as a whole was brilliantly managed. Thanks a lot.
I really wanted to show my wife and my kids the best places in the south, so I booked on this amazing new bus tour. I liked the way we booked our bus seats online and picked our tour date. First, they offered us a massive number of tours that they offering in Texas, then chose this one as it fits our budget, time, and demand. To be honest we loved exploring the NASA Space Center more than anything else we enjoyed. The Houston is also best known for its NASA Space Center, initially, they had rocket launch display almost every month, yet they have probably changed the rocket launch site, but that massive collection is still there at the space center in the rocket park. The Houston Natural Museum was also great, because they such a massive collection of living beings from the past, the dinosaur and whale persevered bone structure was absolutely enticing. Thanks for dropping us back to Dallas airport, we returned to our hometown on time. Can’t believe the bus tour was this perfect. Cheers!
