Your Itinerary

Table Rock Dam

We will see the dam from the river side and the lake side. We also see and talk about the Shepherd of the Hills Trout Hatchery.

College of the Ozarks

Find out why C of O is so dearly beloved by the people of the Ozarks, as well as people from all over the world. This school has been visited by Presidents, First Ladies, Prime Ministers, Military Leaders, etc. You will LOVE the stop we make at The Keeter Center, too. Enjoy coffee, ice cream, baked goods, shopping and talking to the C of O students you will meet.

Shepherd of the Hills Farm & Playland

See where tourism REALLY began in Branson. The catalyst of tourism to Branson, was due to the worldwide success of the book, "Shepherd of the Hills" by Harold Bell Wright. This stop is literally the property that the book was written and written about! (It's also a restroom stop! Hehe!)


(Pass by)

You will love this quaint little Old English Village, with its Tudor style architecture, fun shops, galleries and restaurants. Find out how the railroad "turned this town around!" The Downing Street District is a place you will want to return to for some unique shopping and dining options!


(Pass by)

Downtown Branson, on the shores of Lake Taneycomo, is where Reuben Branson and his wife, Mary, built the Branson General Store, around 1881, and the town had been growing and changing ever since. You will see several shops and restaurants in the historic downtown district. Like Hollister, this is a place you will want to come back to after the tour is over. No franchise restaurants or retail shops in this district. However, Branson Landing Mall, is just down the hill and across the railroad tracks. So you can shop old and new!

Loved getting overviews of and History of Branson .Gave us places to come back to for more exploration such as College of the Ozarks, Hollister, and assorted music and theater venuess


Very informative and entertaining! Lots more to Branson than we had known! Michael was a great tour guide as well


Michael was a great host. His knowledge of the area was super. He was a lot of fun on the tour. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.


We enjoyed seeing the Branson area and hearing the history. A highlight for us was the stop at The College of the Ozarks. We would have liked more time there to visit with the students, shop at the gift store, and see the Veteran's Museum. Hearing about the fish hatchery was interesting too. A stop there should be added to this tour once it is reopened. We appreciated the stops for photo shoots but did find the driver's narrative during the tour to be a bit confusing.


Great tour of the Branson area with a knowledgeable driver. Comfortable van with big windows. Various stops at interesting places.


I recommend this tour when you first arrive to Branson. Michael does a amazing overview on the History and the Lay of the Land. It's so informational that we go every time we visit. One of our favorite parts of the tour is stopping in at the School of the Ozarks. Definitely will do it again. 👍👍


Michael is so great at telling history of Branson and he’s funny too. He did a wonderful job. I’m Judy and better at doing this then Bill. We both enjoyed the tour.


We like to take a tour to get familiar with the area and this tour was great!! Our guide, Michael, did a fantastic job. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. In addition to the sites, we enjoy info on places to eat and things to do. We highly recommend using VIP Tours of Branson.


Just finished a tour today and let me say Michael, our tour guide, was superb…. and would highly recommend him! Very knowledgeable and what a sense of humor he has! I would definitely recommend this experience especially if you plan to spend a few days in Branson……. as we were able to see many things that we would not have otherwise! The College of the Ozarks and the Keeter Center and its restaurant inside is a DO NOT MISS! Thank you Michael!


Guide was very van clean....very interesting way to see and hear about Branson and decide on other things to do
