Travel along the beautiful, scenic backroads of the Texas Hill Country, with a brief stop at the LBJ National Historic Park Visitor Center in Johnson City. After, you'll visit the town of Stonewall, the peach capital of Texas and home to the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site. Enjoy a tour of the LBJ Ranch, located along the picturesque Pedernales River.

During your tour, you will discover how the German migration of the 1840s and 1850s influenced the development of this picturesque area. You will hear about the role of the Texas cowboy, and the great cattle drives from South Texas to mid-western markets, and you'll learn about the legacies of both LBJ—America’s 36th President—and Lady Bird, his beloved wife.

We will visit the quaint German town of Fredericksburg, known for great shopping, western & regional art, biergartens, bratwurst, Texas-European fusion furniture, and home & ranch decor. In this picturesque little town is where you can visit the Nimitz Museum & National Museum of the Pacific War. If you prefer, you can shop and eat lunch at an authentic German biergarten, or go to a wine tasting (or 2!), or sample award-winning beer at the Fredericksburg Brewery. We make this Fredericksburg part of the tour flexible, so you'll have time to browse the town and do whatever pleases you!

We will stop and take in the storied musical history of the colorful town of Luckenbach, made world-famous by Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P Nunn, Hondo Crouch, and many more artists and colorful characters.

Finally, we will discuss the development of the Texas wine industry as we drive through Texas vineyards and visit one of the area's award-winning local wineries. (Optional)
We’ll be traveling from Austin, one of the fastest-growing cities in the US, to the west, on Highway 290 into the heart of the great German migration of the 19th century.

Until further notice, guided tours of the interior of the “Texas Whitehouse” are canceled per the National Park Service due to needed repairs. However, guests can still explore the LBJ Ranch grounds, view exhibition pieces and artifacts in the JetStar Hangar, watch an award-winning 14-minute film, and get a picture with LBJ’s infamous JetStar aka “Air Force One-Half.”

After reservation is complete please follow voucher instructions to call Gray Line directly 48 hours prior to your tour departure to confirm your reservation. Details
