Spend spring or fall in Fredericksburg, when you can witness the phenomenon of the Mexican bat migration. Fredericksburg Trolley Tours offers a variety of tours and shuttle services around historic Fredericksburg and the surrounding area, including the Burgers & Bats Tour. Hop aboard one of the vintage style trolleys and let someone else do the driving while you enjoy this unique experience just a short ride outside of town and experience bat caves in Texas.

The air-conditioned trolley will transport you in comfort to the old tunnel area at Alamo Springs in Old Tunnel State Park. Thousands to millions of Mexican bats emerge from the tunnel at dusk, spiraling up and into the night sky in a dramatic display. The sheer quantity of bats in one location is astounding. Bring along your camera to capture this sight, as long as the flash is off. After leaving the park, you will enjoy a casual dinner at a nearby restaurant, reminiscing about your experience with one of the top Fredericksburg TX activities. Gluten-free menu options are available.
