Welcome to Waco

Waco is home to the world's largest Baptist university (Baylor University); college legend claims that students can ostensibly attend a different area Baptist church every weekend during their four years. (It's true – there are almost 100 of them.)

Classic Waco Tour

Our Classic Tour begins and ends at the Hotel Indigo, located at 211 Clay Avenue. Don't worry about printing off your tickets or paying for parking- your tour guide will be waiting to greet you inside the lobby and will check your group in by name! Once we've got the whole group in the lobby we'll load up into our very comfortable Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans where we'll take you all around town. About 30 minutes into the tour we'll make our first stop at a local coffee house and ice cream shop right next door where we'll treat you to a locally-made treat! We'll load back up and showcase Baylor University, more of downtown Waco and a neighborhood on the other side of the Brazos River with rich history. Then we'll take you into beautiful Cameron Park, showcasing one of Waco's best hidden gems including our second stop on top of these beautiful limestone cliffs along the Balcones escarpment for a photo opportunity and quick bathroom break. Up next we'll hit some of Waco's most memorable neighborhoods and showcase several houses from a locally-filmed home renovation TV show you might've heard of! Once we've shown you those neighborhoods, we wrap things up by showing you our beautiful Lake Waco and "Cruise the Valley" back into the heart of downtown. Get ready for a fun time with a few surprises along the way too!
