What's included in this trip
Texas Ranger SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Farewell the city of Dallas and drive to San Angelo, a tough town with a charming heart. If there’s time, stop by the historic Fort Concho, which gives an insight into what it was like trying to protect frontier settlements of the old west, or Miss Hatties Bordello Museum, Texas’ most notorious brothel.
Spend two days in the incredible Big Bend National Park, a stunning desert and mountain landscape that follows the Rio Grande. Explore the Chihuahuan Desert environs on one of the many hiking trails, take a float trip down the Rio Grande and head deep into the park to uncover the Lost Mine Trail – offering an unparalleled view of the desert and across the Mexican Sky Islands.
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.
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.

Texas Ranger, May 2014

This tour was just amazing! We were able to see so many different places of Texas, nature, deserts and cities. Our group was fantastic, and Amanda is probably the best tour guide ever. Before the tour started I had no idea what to expect, and it turned out that I had the time of my life. THANK YOU!!!
