Great birthday experience
Christine_W, Sep 2023
Dano and Goose were not only extremely knowledgeable of Waco past and present, they were hilarious as they were taking us around. The guys were polite and considerate when we got out at the stops. Goose even made sure our photos included my service dog, Gabby. This was my choice for my birthday celebration with my youngest child, and I had loads of fun. Thanks Dano and Goose, and the Waco Tours team.

Linda_G, Jul 2023
Leah and Brendon were both very informative and friendly and amusing. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a quick view of Waco, or even anyone from the area. I am from Hillsboro and I saw things I didn’t even know were in Waco.

Amazing tour! Highly recommend this to get to know Waco. It gives a great checklist of places to check out.
A wonderful tour
Steve_L, Jul 2023
A wonderful tour. We had taken the other bus tour four years ago. We thought aboug taking it again since this one was more money, but we wanted to see if it was different. It was a longer tour with more stops. Liz and Baxter made us have a blast. Liz drove, but both of them talked. We got a bonus on our tour as we were doing a drive by and pause at one of the fixer upper's the 5 wonderful ladies on our tour were staying there and kind enough to let us all go inside. A great variety on this tour with plenty of stops to enjoy and no stops were too short or too long.
We both enjoyed the tour....

My two sisters and I came from different states wanting to see Waco and especially the Magnolia Silos. We thought it’d be fun to learn what else Waco had to offer so I found Classic Waco Tour:Best Sites & TV highlights in Waco on-line and am I glad I did! We would say that the tour was the best part of our stay! My sisters and I learned all the interesting facts about Waco and we laughed, sang, ate ice cream and absolutely loved our time on the bus with Liz and Baxter as our tour guides! They made the tour so entertaining and made everyone on the bus feel welcome and at home. Waco is such a wonderful city and hometown community. Baylor College is such a great College Liz and Baxter are a great team! We loved their energy and cheerful fun humor! We just about want to move here in Waco!thanks Classic Waco Tour and Liz and Baxter! Best Tour Ever!
Best tour ever!

We enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about Waco. Our guides were great. The only constructive criticism is that we felt it could have been about 20% shorter. Otherwise, it was entertaining!
