I joined this trip with my husband. My husband loved visiting the Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Dallas Museum of Art were the top notch in this 6 day trip. Bus was of big size, to enjoy these 6 days there was a huge crowd inside the bus. I must say that hygiene of bus was properly maintained and that neatness enhanced the pleasure of smooth driving as well. Places were very new for both of us. We were glad that informative guide was joining us all the 6 days and to the point information about destinations was very attractive part of this trip. I personally loved being a part of Natural Bridge Caverns in this entire trip. Thanks a lot to all the management team for making this beautiful arrangement.

I was there with my mother and loved this wonderful trip. We were experiencing such bus tour for the first time and destinations were also new for both of us. I enjoyed The Dallas Museum of Art and George W Bush Library a lot. Thanks, Alex (our tour guide) who was a big support of this long 6 days trip. I never thought of night trips but I joined St. Antonio Night Tour with my mom because guide was a man of spirit joining us and simply loved it (had no worries at all). Thanks

I loved the destinations a lot. Every single day was very exploring regarding destinations and meals as well. It was a long trip of 6 days but the comfort level of bus never made it boring. Luxurious accommodations were the best thing in this trip to feel fresh every day. Water Gardens, John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza and Pioneer plaza were the best places in this entire trip. I felt really cool to be a part of this long tour and learnt enough about places as well from the amazing and informative guides. I do recommend it to all people who want to make their holidays memorable that go and get this bus tour booking because there is much more for the visitors to enjoy. Many thanks with all my heart. Well deserving 5 stars! Highly recommend.

The pleasant fragrance of this amazing 6 day trip is always going to be a part of my memories. Fun time, tasty food, amazing outlets and attractive destinations are never going to leave you in this entire trip. The real spirit and strength of this bus tour is the organized team. There are guides to guide you and there different ways to entertain to about destinations and was very notable. More or less all places were amazing but I loved the attractiveness of Battleship Texas, NASA space center and San Jacinto Monument of Houston in depth tour. There is fine management and that matters a lot in bus tours. I appreciate it and certainly suggest it to others. Thanks a lot.

The best tour of my life. The whole tour was well planned and managed in a great way. Our tour guide was the professional and active man. He tells us how to hang out on the beach. This tour is a true combo ofhistory, art, scenic beauty, fun, trill and much more. We have lots of activities. I spent the best time at Downtown Disney and Fort Lauderdale. Special thanks to Mr. L who become my good friend. I must recommend this tour to others. Missing good days.

I am from Belarus and joined this long tour of 6 days with my husband. We were never into such bus tours before that’s why were bit worried in the beginning. I must say that after meeting the bus driver and guide I found myself very lucky to book this amazing bus tour. Exploring destinations like Rodeo as Night Tour and Fort Worth was very informative in this bus tour with knowledgeable guide. His interesting and lovely style to tell about the destinations and their history never bored me. Bundle of thanks!

I joined this tour with my wife and two kids. Our selection of timing was a bit wrong as the weather was hot and humid. We loved the scenic views all the way. Thebeaches were beautiful. We visited Universal Studio Florida and we never forget that day it was amazing. Chosen hotels were good; their service was extremely attentive and professional. The bus was comfortable and air-conditioned. The tour guide was a nice man. He was not fluent in English and given his best. He helped us a lot during the shopping. Thanks for your hospitality.

We covered almost all places of itinerary and captured the beauty of all places in my camera. I hardly manage such long trip in my hectic routine of a job. I must say that I just paid of this bus tour and everything was on plate for me. Thanks a lot for an amazing trip. Buckhorn Saloon& Texas Ranger Museum and Rice University were the exceptions for me in this entire trip.
