Looking for what to do and where to go?

We’ll show you all the highlights from “Fixer Upper,” take you downtown and to Harp Design, and share about our city’s rich history. We’ll also show you the secrets of Cameron Park, invite you into the story of East Waco, explore gorgeous neighborhoods you’ve seen on TV and much more. In addition, we will treat you to a local coffee or ice cream!

So, what do we mean by the “restoration story” of Waco?

Waco is a city that has been transformed over the past several decades. This restoration includes so much more than the homes that have been restored on TV, because our entire community as a whole has also been revitalized. On our tour, we’ll share about the trials and struggles Waco has endured, as well as how it became what it is today. It’s a beautiful story that you won’t want to miss!

This tour is one of the most FUN things you’ll do in Waco.

Our extensively trained Tour Guides and Drivers are some of the best in the business – they will get to know you, make you laugh, and are experts on Waco! They will be your personal concierges for your Waco visit, showing you where to eat, where to shop, and the best things to do to make the most of your time.

River Cruise was great Sam & Bobby were great guides. Passed along lots of history of the Waco area. They were very personable as well. I told my wife there were two highlights of our Waco trip and the River cruise was one of them.
