We did both a city tour of Austin and a full day tour of the Hill Country. The city tour with Bree was very interesting and gave us a good road map for the restaurants and entertainment districts. The Hill Country/wine tasting tour was excellent. Will was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We enjoyed the wine tasting venues and historic Fredericksburg. It was a great way to see the countryside.

Just the way it should be. A great way to spend a cool 90 minutes to get an overview of the city. Then, we went back to the sites we wanted to spend more time at. Easy!

"A perfect Overview of Changing Austin"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 10, 2019
The 90 minute ride in a comfortable van seeing the sights of Austin and the hills around it was the perfect introduction to a city I didn’t know. There was both “canned commentary “and relevant comments by our guide ,Dow. By the end I had a mental map of what to see, why I should see it and aspects not to be missed. A very reasonable price for all this good information
