A note about this tour
Note: convertible top may be closed during bad weather, cold/hot/rain, as well as any part of the route that is on the highway where our speed would cause too much wind to be comfortable.

Overview

In Texas, even our convertibles are bigger: Find out for yourself with 360-degree views of Austin in a unique, convertible-top Mercedes-Benz sprinter. Take in major sights, including time to hop off the van and appreciate beautiful views, iconic murals, and historic sites along the way. Expect stops for some light walking at the Driskill Hotel, the University of Texas campus, and the Pfluger bridge (subject to change due to events or closures.)

This small-group tour (14 passenger max) is the one to do if you want a comprehensive look at what makes this city what it is: from the towering architecture of downtown, the humble yet active expanse of the south side, the quaint and historical east, and the perpetually awe-inspiring capitol and campus.

Note: convertible top may be closed during bad weather, cold/hot/rain, as well as any part of the route that is on the highway where our speed would cause too much wind to be comfortable.

We were in town for our daughter's wedding and did a private 90 minute tour. Ari our guide was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We learned alot about Austin. It was a beautiful drive. Vehicle was very nice. She was on time and very pleasant. I would highly recommend.

We were shown all of Austin and taught quite a bit about the Capital of Texas. There's actually a lot of construction going on. It's just there to make more room for more interesting people.

My trip on a yucky rainy day had a bright spot in it with the superior guide- Avery - a handsome, articulate and well versed young man. The highlights, the architecture, & history-all amazing! A well conducted, entertaining and informative tour. And just the perfect length of time w/o becoming boring . Highly recommend

The tour itself and our tour guide were honestly fantastic. We were kept engaged the entire time. Love the few quick stops that we made to stretch our legs and even restroom breaks. The only thing negative to report is sitting in the first 2 rows of the bus are not very good for viewing when the roof opens as the overlapping glass makes it very dark to see through. Would suggest sitting in back of bus if roof opens.

We learned a good amount about Austin. There was pre-recorded narrative as well as a driver/guide. The guide continually talked while the pre-recorded narrative was playing. This was very annoying.

Avery did a good job highlighting the city. Tour could have been longer. Loved the custom van. Would take tour again if more options are available.

The guide was very nice, good energy. The bus was very nice and clean. It's a a "cliff notes" version of the city that gets your feet wet quickly in 90mins. It sort of leaves you wishing for more depth but for the price I thought it was entertaining.

We did enjoy the open air van… when it wasn’t raining. Since we make a practice of doing city tours when we are in a new area, we are used to a tour guide filling in dead space with interesting stories, historical facts , etc. This particular guide let the audio tape do much of her job and let quiet reign or made minor comments much of the time between when the tape was speaking. This was just a city tour… she stopped twice.. one time to look at a cemetery where no one got out. Again… just underwhelmed.

Good overview of the city. Wanted to stop in more places along the route. Guide was knowledgeable. Bus was clean. Very covid safe.
