13-day tour of Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and more…
With its large size and diversity, Texas locals say, “Texas, it’s like a whole other country.” On this tour through the Lone Star State you’ll discover its major cities—Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston—and some of its historical landmarks, museums, and must-see sights before crossing into Louisiana for time in Lafayette and New Orleans. Tour highlights include a behind-the-scenes tram tour of the Johnson Space Center, home to NASA and the U.S. Space Program. Witness engineers, scientists, and astronauts as they shape the future of space exploration. Visit Southfork Ranch, the renowned filming location of the Dallas television series, and the San Fernando Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in the United States. Take a barge tour on the San Antonio River Walk and a boat cruise through Louisiana’s Atchafalaya Basin. History buffs will be fascinated at the Sixth Floor Museum, the location from which Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly shot President John F. Kennedy. At the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historic Park and Texas White House, hear the story of Johnson’s life. Also visit the Bob Bullock State History Museum that tells the “Story of Texas.” Of course, no history buff can leave Texas without visiting the Alamo, where you’ll have a private guided tour. All this and more await on your tour through Texas—the Lone Star State.
