"Downtown Dives Bike Tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 24, 2019
We were a group of 6 ladies away on a girls trip and loved this tour. Our guide was Trey, and he was super enthusiastic! You could feel his love for the city of Austin. The weather was pretty hot, so the indoor stops at several "dives" were much appreciated. We learned some interesting facts about the city and also felt like we got some exercise along the way. Sarah was very helpful at the beginning and end getting us fitted on the bikes. Definitely recommend this tour!

"Bike and Taco tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 19, 2019
We did the tour as a team building event. Trey was our tour guide and he was great. Even the native Austinites learned something new about their city. The taco stops were great to enjoy a good taco and take a bit of a rest. I highly recommend this tour.

The service was great on the phone prior to our arrival and great when we got there. We rented 6 bikes prior to leaving for Austin. They were delived to us as scheduled and all adjustments were made and off we went. We had an issue with the brakes on one of the bikes and made a pit stop by their physical location. They were quick to remedy the situation and we were on our way again. Austin is a great place to ride bikes and you can see much more when you are riding on two wheels rather than in a car/bus.

"Great rental experience!"

I rented a bike for a few hours on a hot fall afternoon. The bikes are much better than the clunky, heavy rideshare models! Rates are very reasonable; the staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable.
