    The announcement in the van was very clear and funny. The driver was very nice. Just too short, 90 minutes was not enough. If the bus could making some stops, it would be better.

    Doug is a great and informative guide. A real snapshot of Austin and Western environs with interesting insights.

    The tour guide was very helpful, informative, and funny. It was a great way to see the city. I would recommend to anyone.

    This was the first thing we did when we got into Austin. Great tour to get to know and understand the layout of the city. And where our preteens wanted to spend more time for our trip in the upcoming days. Our tour guide was great & knowledgeable, but I’m sorry we can’t remember his name.

    Loved seeing and hearing about the old and new buildings and neighborhoods. Pleasant way to spend time on a rainy day.

    Our guide, Jack, provided interesting details. Be aware that there are no stops during the 90-minute tour — though that allowed us to covered a lot of ground.

    It was my first time in Austin.The tour was so rich and covered almost all the places I wanted to see. It was in an air conditioned car, so that came very convenient with the cold raining weather. Jack, the guide was so nice and informative. I would definitely recommend it, especially for those who have a tight schedule.

    Doug was an an integral part of making the tour enjoyable! Humor, explanations and a great introduction to the city and hill country.

    This was a nice overview of the Austin area. Not too little, not to much, but just right. Thanks to Doug for making it entertaining. He was very knowledgeable too!!

    The Library, it is amazing! With beautiful walking space right across the street. Also Doug the driver was a great host, a little bit of historical data with current history of each section of town and interlaced with some funny personal stories. Glad I went!
