With such a rich history and so many fun things to do, choosing the perfect activity in Fredericksburg can sometimes feel overwhelming. Luckily, there are several companies that offer guided tours. To help make your vacation planning easier, we’ve carefully compiled a list of our favorite Fredericksburg tours. We believe that these tours showcase quintessential sights, tastes, and history of Fredericksburg.

Wildflower Trolley

From April until June, the Fredericksburg Trolley rolls out to the countryside daily to bring visitors to one of Texas Hill Country’s crown jewels: the Willow City Wildflower Loop. Wandering for 13 miles through rocky canyons, over rolling hills, and overlooking panoramic views, The Loop showcases the beautiful and varied terrain that makes Hill Country so unique.  This Spring trolley tour is not to be missed but tickets do sell out quickly. Instead of driving yourself along the Willow City Wildflower Loop, treat yourself and your family to a climate-controlled, guided tour of the most beautiful display of wildflowers that Texas offers.

Texas Grapes Wine Tours

For those who prefer wine over beer, then you have to check out one of the best Fredericksburg wine tours! Texas Grapes Wine Tour offers fully personalized wine tours that are led by knowledgeable guides. Relax in a stretch limousine while your friendly wine guide transports you and your guests to three premier wineries in Fredericksburg and Texas Hill Country. Your Fredericksburg tour will be customized depending on your taste preferences – whether you like sweet, dry, bold, red, or white wines, the knowledgeable tour guide will make sure you get the most out of your trip.

Explore the Historic District With Fredericksburg Tours

If you’re feeling up to choosing your own adventure, Fredericksburg’s Historic District is full of interesting, mysterious, and beautiful buildings to explore. Home to descendants of German immigrants who arrived in Hill Country in the 19th century, Fredericksburg boasts a large number of historic buildings that mimic period European architecture.  Pick up a self-guided walking tour map at the Fredericksburg Visitor Center and wander through historic churches, saloons, hotels, banks, homes, and a well-preserved apothecary. As they zigzag through the Historic District’s grid, guests can read informational placards with loads of information about each building.
