Springtime in Texas is very special – beautiful weather and spectacular wildflowers in bloom.

Our dance begins in the Houston/Galveston area centrally located between these two very different cities. There is just so much to see and do, a week in this area hardly seems long enough.

We tour the world-famous NASA Space Center to see where Astronauts are trained and US Space Missions are controlled. You can land a Space Shuttle, see a real Gemini Rocket and even touch a moon rock. We will visit the world-famous Moody Gardens to be astonished at their Aquarium and Rainforest Pyramids. Visit Galveston’s Historic Homes, the beautiful Strand and Pier 21. Tour the Battleship Texas and stroll along the Kemah Boardwalk. In Houston, join our guided tour of Reliant Stadium, Minute Maid Park, The Galleria and River Oaks. Prepare to be amazed at the Museum of Natural Sciences and the Butterfly Center and Planetarium.

We’ll two-step down the coast to Corpus Christi and visit the famous King Ranch sprawling across 825,000 acres in an area larger than the state of Rhode Island. While there you enjoy a Barbecue at a Cowboy Camphouse just like the cowboys did years ago.

San Antonio WOW! What a city at Fiesta time! We have reserved Riverside seats to watch the illuminated floats as they ply their way along the River. We also experience the “Coronation of the Queen” at the Majestic theatre. At the Battle of the Flowers Parade, we’ll have reserved seats to cap off an eventful week. We visit the historic Alamo and charter a boat to cruise through the beautiful Riverwalk area.

In Austin, we enjoy a great sightseeing cruise on Lady Bird Lake and see the beautiful flora, fauna and dramatic landscapes inspired by Lady Bird Johnson. We experience a bat watching cruise surely to amaze you.

From Fredericksburg, we tour the Lyndon Johnson Ranch and Texas Whitehouse before sliding south to the border town of Del Rio. We’ll stop in Langtree, home of the legendary Judge Roy Bean, ‘The Law West of the Pecos’ and then on to Big Bend National Park. Experience the majesty firsthand of the largest protected area of Chihuahuan Desert topography and ecology in the United States.

Beautiful Grapevine is located midway between Fort Worth and Dallas. We’ll take you on three days of exciting luxury Motorcoach tours covering all the exciting activities within a 50 mile radius. We’ll visit the Dallas Cowboys $1.2 Billion Dollar football stadium, tour the NASCAR Texas Motor Speedway, and take the JFK Assassination Trail Heritage Tour. We tour ‘Horse Country USA’, Southfork Ranch and have breakfast at the Ewing Mansion, where the hit TV show Dallas was filmed. In Fort Worth, we visit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, See the famous Fort Worth Longhorn cattle drive and see a live Championship Rodeo. This is one of the best tours we have ever put together.

    Byron & Janet Warner
  • I must say it was way beyond my wildest dreams and thoughts of South Africa. First of all, I have to say that the people were exceptional. They were beautiful not only in looks, their beauty was in everything they did for us. They were so happy to talk with us and question us about America. They all would love to come over here to visit but said they knew they would never be able to afford the trip. I was overwhelmed with the young children and their attitude toward us. They laughed, smiled and waved to us all along the highways on their way to school. I have to admit, I was so proud of how they were dressed and their pride. Our American children have so much and appreciate it so little.
    Carole & Len Adams
  • “Excellent trip! We experienced so much in a relatively short period of time. The length of this trip was perfect for us. The amount of free time was perfect.”
    Frank & Roz Jaronzyck
  • Thank you so much for sending me your 20th anniversary DVD of my Adventure Caravans' New York City 10 Day Rally. I really enjoyed this trip so much and meeting all the people on the trip. I enjoyed watching this video and it brought back so many wonderful memories.  I am really looking forward to taking another trip with Adventure Caravans! Would you please tell your staff what a pleasure it was meeting them and what a wonderful job they did on this trip and hopefully I will get to tour with them again soon. Thanks again for everything.
