We had a wonderful time. Justin, our tour guide, was charming and informative. We were only in Austin for a short time and this tour gave us a wonderful feel for the city as well as a bit of an insider view!

This is my first time to Austin and my husband is busy at SXSW. So thought I would book myself some tours through Viator. I'm really glad I picked this one. It totally exceeded my expectation. Our guide Jason greeted us with a big smile and lots of enthusiasm. Being a musician himself as well, he gave us a good history/background on the Austin music scene, and where to go for good live music. We drove pass by different neighborhoods, and graffiti art park, and visited the Capitol. Jason really knows his stuff, and made this entire tour very educational, fun and absolutely worthy. We then wrapped up the tour with some sweets from a dessert food truck. What a great way to learn about Austin! Definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to have a good overview of Austin in 2 hours!

What You'll Get

Your tour of Austin begins at the visitor center, where you'll meet your guide, who takes you on an exploration of the city.

Unlike double-decker bus tours where you are dropped off at the biggest attractions to sightsee on your own, this tour introduces you to several locations that you'll pop into for a few minutes each, learning about them from your guide, whose in-the-know commentary provides more insight than you could get elsewhere. As you go, cross of items from your bucket list, including the inside of the Capitol and the graffiti park. Take a photo in front of the Austin postcard, and enjoy a sweet treat at the food trucks.

You'll learn about art, music, culture, food, history, parks, famous residents, and how the locals 'Keep Austin Weird.' By the end of your tour, there is no doubt that you will know why people love Austin. Come as strangers, leave as friends.
