We went on the 3-hour Discover Branson Tour. Even though we’ve been to Branson many times, we still learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Joe was very informative and interesting. We highly recommend this tour.

If you are new to Branson or you’ve been there before, I highly recommend VIP Tours. It has become tradition for us to take Bob’s tours every year. We always do the Taste of Branson and it is perfect for 21 year olds all the way up to 78 or older! We also joined them this past year for a family tour where they took us to restaurants in Branson and even our teenagers had a blast. We always request Bob and enjoy his sense of humor and he always goes out of his way to make our tour special.

"Excellent Tour Guides. The Lights? Not So Much"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed January 05, 2019
I have a mixed review for this tour. I want to point out that the tour guides were EXCELLENT. Funny, interactive, knowledgeable, and entertaining! The bus was comfortable enough but the views from the left side 3rd row of the bus were TERRIBLE. Don't sit there! The Branson hotel tour was nice. Cupcake was good. Hot chocolate was SO HOT that we had to let it cool for awhile before it was suitable for drinking. So, we opted for moscato/water and a hotel tour in the meantime. The hotel is BEAUTIFUL. But when we got back to our table to enjoy our hot chocolate, the server took them away without asking! Not nice, server guy! He gave me some more in a cup to take with me, though. Learning the town's history was great. The Shepard of the Hills lights tour was TERRIBLE. Displays were so old and dimly lit that I might as well have stayed home. No "wow factor" AT ALL. The second lights display (can't remember the name) was slightly better. The only "wow factor" came at the end, though. But no dice. I wouldn't do this tour again unless they offered MUCH better holiday lights shows.

For a hassle free, enjoyable tour I highly recommend! We did the Christmas lights tour one evening and turned around and did the Branson tour the next morning. We had Joe as our driver/guide and you can tell he cares about the customer experience. The tours were a nice length which mixed well with time exploring on our own.
