It's a well-planned tour. We started in the morning in Houston and drive to the University of Texas. I was lucky that the whole tour was only me with another couple, so the trip became extremely relax and flexible. The university was ok, we saw a lot of students taking graduation photo shoots. The Military Forces Museum is a great stop. There weren't many people in the force and they let us wear the uniform when taking the picture. It was a great experience. State Capitol was also good.. you can join a guided tour if you are lucky. There were some volunteer free guides.
I recommend this tour!
