Michael was our tour guide and has been a local since the 80s, so practically a native! He was very knowledgeable and humorous on our guided tour. He was also excellent when it came to safety. While we were a group of adults only, I would definitely feel safe taking kids through town on this tour if he was leading it. He even had bottled water to keep us hydrated in the Texas heat! It was fascinating to hear about the city’s history and anticipated future. Austin is certainly a one of a kind place and Michael definitely encouraged us not only to Keep Austin Weird, but also to embrace the oddities while in town. Felt like a local and definitely know some hidden gems of the city to check out next time I am in town!
