About this trip

Join us for a fun filled weekend - Texas style! An uber-cool house filled with fun travelers to hang out with and explore the Texas Hill country. Much to do in this beautiful area of Texas just a short ride from the San Antonio airport and walking distance to all the festivities! There are all kinds of natural settings, hiking, shopping, wine tasting, horseback riding, golfing. You can even take a bi-plane ride!

Why Fredericksburg?  It holds one of the best Oktoberfests outside of Munich! Although Munich's Oktoberfest has been cancelled on us the last two years, let's go to Oktoberfest this year...deep in the heart of Texas! 

Come celebrate Fredericksburg's German heritage with food and drink, a waltz and yodel contest, music on four stages all weekend; artisans, Kinderpark, souvenirs and more! Will be fun for the whole family!   

Let's enjoy OkTUBAfest on Friday and come meet the Brewmeisters. Meet the brewmeisters: Shiner and Leinenkugel Brewing Company, Kraut Run, Hauptstrasse Chicken Dance, Histriker Competitions, Samuel Adams Beer Stein Hoist. On Saturday, there will be a 42 Domino Tournament, Family Dirndle and Lederhosen Contest, and Yodel Contest. You can even register for a 5k or 8k run!

When you are not two-stepping to an oompah band, you could spend time in one of the many beautiful spas, walk the urban wine trail, shop the cute little shops, rent a bike or sit on our front porch swing watching the world go by. That is the beauty of this type of travel flexible, personalized and exactly what you want it to be! JOIN US!!

Itinerary

Outdoors & Nature
Exploring the Texas Hill Country

It’s no wonder people flock to the Texas Hill Country. The rolling hills, colorful wildflowers, and winding country roads are enough to make anyone want to commune with nature. If the outdoors is your cup of tea, you’ll find it hard to fit all this is in on one trip. For the binocular-toting crowd, the Fredericksburg area has everything from bats (and millions of them) to 300 species of birds. For the gotta-get-up-and-move types, Fredericksburg is also known for its hiking, rock climbing Enchanted Rock, and for bicycling and horseback riding.

We had a great time! The lodging (Glamping) was very unique and fun, I enjoyed the people, and the activities were wonderful. Tricia did a fantastic job of putting this together and making sure that everyone's needs were met. Thanks!

This was an absolutely amazing, once in a lifetime trip!! Well organized and lead by Tricia and 2 wonderful Egyptian tour guides, this trip was packed full of history, fun and adventure! If Egypt has been on your bucket list, I strongly encourage you to pack your bags, lather on the sun screen and join the camel train! Our team was well cared for, safe at all times and with Covid precautions maintained. I am so grateful for my Egyptian experience with Alt Esc and will forever cherish the memories!

Egypt welcomed us with open arms. The people were so warm and eager to see us and talk with us. Our guides were the perfect ambassadors to this marvelous country. They called us their goddess and I truly felt like a goddess. The food was plentiful and delicious. The itinerary was full and so well planned. We experienced "Egypt" in the sites, in the sounds, and all of the flavors. Tricia had this trip organized, kept our spirits and excitement at a "12" . Each day brought a new surprise or a special activity. Thank you for offering this fabulous trip. My heart grew by 17 new sisters in the travel family.

Fascinating! That word best describes Egypt for me. Our May Epic Egypt Escape was just wonderful, great group of travelers, we experienced so much of the culture and people and saw so many amazing sights. There were so many highlights, I just can't name them all, but the sunrise hot air balloon ride and Abu Simbel have to be at the top of my list. Tricia did a wonderful job setting up, planning and organizing this trip. Fascinating trip and I highly recommend Egypt, Tricia and Alt Esc for your next travel adventure.
