We have used "AustinDetours" for both a regular driving tour & later for a private tour for six. I highly recommend that you use the Public Tour if there are only 2-4 of you, but for larger groups a Private Tour is even better.Th Public Tour is a great way to get acclimated to Austin & then be able to follow-up on specific areas of interest. You should try to take the tour as soon as possible on your visit to AustinWe took the Public Tour 2-years ago & a Private tour for six this week. The Private tour allowed us to linger & focus on areas of particular interest to our private group. Our guide (Marty Moeller) was extremely knowledgable and accommodating to our interests.Using "AutinDetours" will enable you to make the very most of your time in the Austin area.

Chris was an enthusiastic and entertaining tour guide! The tour covered lots of history and current events in the city. I attended UT a few decades ago and it was interesting seeing all the changes to the city and the things that don't change. I would recommend you put the at the beginning of your trip to help you prioritize your visit.

Great experience! Ike was fun, entertaining, and catered the tour to what we wanted to see around Austin. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants a group to meet others while also getting a more intimate tour feel. Ike was very knowledgable and was open to answering our questions.

Very nice tour of the area. The tour guides obviously love their town and are very proud of it, warts and all. Very covid safe.

Overall good tour of many of the neighborhoods, hot spots, history, restaurants, and culture. We explored the state capitol and got some of the local flavor. This tour met expectations for an informative couple hours!

Going to the Capitol Building in Austin, and taking the tour and then our driver, Ike, got down on the ground and took our picture. He was a wonderful tour guide as well as photographer!
