What are people saying about AO Tours Austin?

BEST Tour Company in Austin, TX!

AO Tours, an iconic company in the City of Austin. Their amazing tours are fit for any size groups. I have been many times with various clients and never disappointed. Recently, we rode in their new lux tour bus, it was so much fun, very comfortable, the glass roof was impressive and when opened you felt the awesome city. The audio explanation of the sights was on spot, including the Spanish version. AND...they are sanitizing their vehicles every day with a hospital grade product via their tech machines. Talk about a Clinically Clean touring service!

Fabulous tour for the newcomer

The tour was a great overview of Austin. The tour guide was knowledgeable about the area and although she had been driving all day, still treated my tour with great enthusiasm and was extremely pleasant. It is a difficult time to be in the tour business and I was just so appreciative they are still up and operating whilst taking the necessary precautions to not spread Covid with hand sanitizers, Temp readings and spraying down the buses. Five stars to the management team and thank you for being in the business of making memories. Hang in there!

The best tour in Austin Texas!

I wish I could give this company more than 5 stars. The company owner reached out and helped us come up with a custom tour in the over 100* heat. While other tour companies are closed during Covid, we were able to have fun during our stay in Austin with our 2 tours in their luxurious air conditioned ride. If it were not for this tour company, we would have been sitting in our hotel our entire vacation. Thank you so much for your tour of Austin Texas.

Beautiful Panoramic and/or Open Air Busses!

My convention booked a private tour with this company and it was great! We had a beautiful bus that was all windows so it offered a beautiful panoramic view of the city and hill country. We had a couple stops, one of them at Covert Park for sunset. The driver planned it PERFECTLY so we were able to enjoy the gorgeous view of the lake and hills at sunset. Our guide was named Will and he made sure everyone had a wonderful experience! They also had an audio tour component where they offer disposable earbuds so every guest can hear the tour, loud and clear! Great for city traffic or the hearing impaired. All appropriate precautions were taken including social distancing, temperature checks, and sanitizing.

Highly recommended!!

Having Malina as our guide was my favorite aspect of the tour — she’s PHENOMENAL!!! This was my second tour with Malina; she knows the city so well that she’s able to share insights and “behind the scenes” details and history, which makes things extra interesting!

Custom tour Austin and Hill Country

Our group of 10 loved traveling in the new glass top vehicle for our private tour. Mary and Bree incorporated our interests into a 4 hour tour of city and Hill Country that was a great combination of riding, walking, eating and photos. Bree was so knowledgeable, accommodating, and fun. Loved hearing her stories! Red and White wine tasting was our final stop - perfect ending for our memorable tour!

Short on time- perfect way to get an overview of Austin

I didn't have time for a long tour because I was in town for a wedding. Still, I wanted to see an overview of Austin and know where to visit in my limited time. AO Tours had multiple start times and the online scheduler was easy to use. I was able to decide at 10AM to take the 12:30 tour. This tour was ideal. It was a combination of a recorded narration and live commentary from our driver/guide. Joel was friendly and informative. Van was comfy. I highly recommend it.

Austin Walking Tour - Great way to be introduced to the city

We did a walking tour that included some food sampling’s as well. It was a great way to be introduced to the city. The guide was very friendly, prompt, and was very knowledgeable about Austin and downtown. The owner was very accommodating as well and helped put a tour together for us during this time of Covid. Great communication and a great tour.

Comprehensive overview of Austin!

"I love the small vehicle aspect of this tour. Bri was a great tour guide, a very competent driver, and very knowledgeable about Austin and the surrounding hill country. It's clear she loves her city. And she is very personable and responsive to questions. The hill country portion of the tour was very informative about the geography of the area and how it influences weather, water geology and even agriculture. The tour helped me to decide what places I want to visit in depth."

Historic Tour of Austin

"The most comprehensive overview of Austin. It is a narrated tour filled with geography, the rich history and culture of Austin. I strongly recommend this tour!"

– Samuel M on TripAdvisor
You can’t go wrong...

Took several tours in a few day’s time. Every guide was extremely personable and knowledgeable. All tours departed on time and sometimes went a bit long in order to answer questions or show us just a little more! Tours are popular and fill up very quickly. All tours are value packed and worth every cent! You can’t go wrong...

Amazing tour

"This tour was better than I expected. Excellent tour guide that gave us the History of the area and showed us some amazing places. I've lived in the Central Texas area and had no idea how beautiful Austin was. This is a MUST SEE tour if you are coming from out of town. The Mercedes bus was very comfortable. We got to see all of the "must see" areas of Austin and then some. I highly recommend this tour!"

Fun tour

"We went on the 12:30, Sunday afternoon tour. It was a great way to see a lot of the city in a fairly short time, and a lot of places we wouldn't have seen on our own. The van was comfortable and we could see well."

– MaribethB24 on TripAdvisor
Seamless

"Just the way it should be. A great way to spend a cool 90 minutes to get an overview of the city. Then, we went back to the sites we wanted to spend more time at. Easy!"

Recommend for first timers

This is highly recommend for first timers to understand the history of Austin and the surrounding area. Enjoyed it and actually goes by very quick and very informative.

A million times I've seen these buildings

A million times I've seen these buildings, those houses, these streets... I thought I knew everything about. Too many times I took the history of these places for granted. A lot of the history shared on the tour, paired with the familiar sights was refreshing, if not a little eye-opening as well. Even though Austin's scenery is (always) in flux, it's just as beautiful if not more so. This tour reminded me of that fact.

Would definitely recommend this to friends or people visiting town!

As a local Austinite, I wasn't sure what to expect from an Austin city tour. I was pleasantly surprised and I learned SO much. It was a rainy day, but our tour guide was positive, happy, and very professional. We rode their pano van (which typically opens all the way up, but didn't due to weather), which is awesome. The whole roof is windows, along with huge passenger windows so you have a gorgeous view.
