Taking a tour of the area, can show you a highlight reel of sorts, giving you a taste of what there is to see, allowing you to go back later to explore more thoroughly and this guide to the top 5 Dripping Springs tours will give you some ideas!

The Dr. Pound Historical Farmstead, 419-B Founders Park Road

One of our favorite ways of getting to know the area we are traveling in is with a step back in time, and a tour of the Dr. Pound Historical Farmstead might be your favorite adventure. Dr. Pound was one of Dripping Springs first settlers and the home in which he lived served a variety of purposes, including farmhouse, schoolhouse, medical office, hospital, and church. Tours are led by docents dressed in historical garb, and at the time of this writing, one of those docents is actually the great-great granddaughter of Dr. Pound for an added authentic touch.

Texas Hill Country Olive Company, 2530 W Fitzhugh Road

The climate of Dripping Springs actually resembles that of Italy, and our fertile ground has become popular for farmers of grapes and olives, with the Texas Hill Country Olive Company flourishing in its growth of olives. Offering tasting tours on a daily basis, the flavors of Dripping Springs will make you fall in love and the olive oils sold at this wonderful establishment will make perfect gifts and souvenirs.

Westcave Preserve, 24814 Hamilton Pool Road in Round Mountain

Offered by reservation only, these tours fill quickly and open at the beginning of each month, so guests will need to book before they arrive in town. The guided canyon tour and meditative hike is their most popular, but their guided photography tour runs a close second, offering travelers the opportunity to bring home more personal souvenirs, photos of the preserve.

Barton Springs Mill, 16604 Fitzhugh Road Unit B

There is a certain pride we take in continuing with the traditions of our ancestors, Barton Springs Mill, even as it is the first new mill in the area in over 100 years, follows the mill traditions that have been in existence for hundreds of years. The tours they offer of their business explore the history of grain mills, starting in the grain rooms and going through the process of making flour, ending with recommendations on what you should be using in your own home baking and cooking procedures and their products, which we can promise you will fall in love with, can be purchased online, so you won’t have to carry a dozen bags of stone ground flour home in your luggage.

Dripping Springs Mixed Tours, Texas Tipsy Tours
