I wanted to do something special for my husband’s birthday, and thought a bike tour would be a perfect way for us to share something he really enjoys. I connected with Deaton and explained what I was looking for – she took it from there and created an amazing experience that we can’t stop talking about! We had a two-hour bike tour through Fredericksburg, learning about the local history and culture from an interesting and knowledgeable tour guide. Chuck let us pick up the pace and slow down as we wished.
Then we headed to URBANherbal, which is an eclectic spot – including gardens, art gallery, herbal products shop, and greenhouse. Mr. Bill Varney hosted us for a delicious and amazing dinner of 4 courses, selected just for us! We were warm and cozy in the greenhouse, being served each course at a relaxed pace, surrounded by plants and artwork. The ambiance was perfect – and it became even more romantic as the night became darker and we were enveloped in a cone of light from the beautiful chandeliers. Bill brings such obvious passion to his cooking, and to the gardens, the art gallery and the products that he makes by hand. It is clear that he has found his calling, in taking care of people through food and art!
And Deaton and her crew take care of their customers as well! This is something we won’t forget – and are looking forward to more trips with Texas Bike Tours!!
