This is the best week we ever had in Texas, moreover, we truly get in that immersive cowboy atmosphere in both Fort Worth and Houston, of course, Dallas is a developed city, great sites and food there. The tour guiding person was a great facility on the course of our bus tour. According to my experience, this is the best tour in Texas with great hotels, buses, and destinations, but it’s a bit pricey. Thanks a lot, though.

Planning for a 7 days trip covering most of Houston was truly interesting. There was nothing to regret and every place we visited seem to be very meaningful and important. We feared initially to spend 7 days, but the accommodations, the tour guide, the eatery places and all were perfect. Our tour operator ensured each guest has their details available and in a group we were like a family. This tour covered high universities to old oak trees. The Jazz live performance was amazing and this was the first time we were watching it as live performance. A great tour!

To be honest, I have never enjoyed the bus tour to the fullest since there already many people with us, though they were nice, I just prefer my own family-vibe when out on the vacations. However, the journey was great, especially it had such great site for us to us explore and San Antonio Journey was the best – we would remember this bus journey forever. I think Fort Worth has other better lodgings instead of that Radisson Hotel, which was decent but not what we were looking for!

This 7 day tour was perfect, but for small slips and buts. The places of importance were covered. The historical facts of president and old times were really intact and that was surprising. The places we ate were also good and served us exceptionally good coffee. I am a coffee lover and so yes, it was for me. The accommodation could have been better; it was looking a bit old styled rooms with plain walls giving a boring appearance. The bathroom also had basic features available and it would have nice to have more fittings to feel home away from home.
