Description

Embark on an adventure to some of Austin’s major landmarks, quaint neighborhoods, and hidden gems that only the locals can show you. Ride through town in a comfortable van, and even get a tasty treat from one of Austin's signature food trucks.

Meet up with your interesting and inquisitive guide to scope out everything that’s cool in Austin, hitting all the hot spots and historical sites. Check out the bars and restaurants along lively 6th Street, admire the ornate façade of the 1886 Driskill Hotel, and see political landmarks like the Texas State Capitol and the elegant colonnaded Governor’s Mansion.

Scope out the Bullock Texas State History Museum, the Blanton Art Museum, the Harry Ransom Center—a massive library known for its collection of rare books and manuscripts—and the University of Texas stadium and campus. Take in the serene natural beauty of Lady Bird Lake, and ride across the Congress Avenue Bridge, which is home to the world’s largest urban colony of bats.

Drive on from site to site as you discover the city’s must-see landmarks, including the Greetings from Austin Postcard mural and the “I love you so much” graffiti, as well as some hidden locations that visitors might not normally find. Take it all in as you chat with your fellow travelers and guide. Learn about the city’s famous people, parks, history, food, and culture, seeing firsthand why locals care so much about keeping Austin weird.

I wish we could remember our guides name because she was terrific (Wednesday, 2/19, 12:30pm tour)! If you are looking for a tour that helps lay the groundwork for the best Austin experience while you are here...this is the one! My teens and I learned a lot, found ourselves referencing much of what the guide taught us during our stay. Highly recommend this tour!

Taking a tour of a city I’ve been to after years was a great idea! Chris our tour guide was very knowledgeable, funny and full of great “dad joke”. Learned a lot about a great city through the eyes of a local! Chris even provided great restaurant/bar recommendations... I would definitely recommend this tour!
