Itinerary

Begin the adventure in Dallas, a classic Texan city full of muscle-cars and millionaires. See the historical side of this swarming metropolis by visiting the site of the Kennedy assassination or head out to one of Dallas’s many fine dining establishments.
Get ready for a toe-tapping, ear-pleasing extravaganza in the ‘weird’ city of Austin. A mecca for all things musical, Texas’s riverside capital is renowned for its relaxed lifestyle, laidback locals and diverse nightspots.
Escape modern Texas and experience the simple life on a traditional Western ranch. Learn about the cowboys of the West, enjoy home-cooked meals and explore the ruggedly beautiful landscapes of rural Texas.
Soak up San Antonio’s rich cultural history and storied past. Brave the tourist throngs and ‘Remember the Alamo’, take a stroll along the Riverwalk or hunt for some tasty Mexican cuisine in this Latin-infused town.
Journey through coastal lowlands to the hustle and bustle of Houston, where the curtain is drawn on the Texas ranger adventure. Perhaps stay on after the tour to visit the home of NASA, search for arts and antiques or explore Houston’s eclectic mix of multicultural eateries.
