Really Good Tour

Really enjoyed your tour. We learned a lot about Austin. And really liked that we got to see quite a bit of Austin and some of the surrounding area. Would have liked to go down Congress St. and back around by the Austin sign, and seen a little bit of the UT campus but realized timing is everything. Thanks so much for a really good tour!

Great way to see the city on a time crunch.

Great way to get your bearings around the city and to learn a lot in a short period of time. Arianna was a great tour guide. Small group and air conditioning were a plus. She knew her way around the city and we stopped at some beautiful places.

Great experience

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. We highly recommend for someone who wants to see both downtown and the hill country. The van was very comfortable and with great views of the scenery.

I will definitely do this again any time we have a visitor.

Had to make a change to plans the day before due to unforeseen circumstances, and Mary did an excellent job finding another tour that worked with our schedule. THANKS, MARY! So, i took a visiting friend and we did the 2 1/2 hour tour on Sunday with Ari as our guide. I'd done one before, and thought it was "...ok..." - but a different friend visiting brought me back to try again... AND I'M GLAD I DID! Maybe knowing what to expect helped, or maybe having a friend who enjoys history made a difference, but I was very pleasantly surprised! I love the added stop at the Driskoll, and being allowed to leave from there (our car was parked a block away, but it would have been a 4 block walk from the visitor center). The brief stops at Barton Springs, Mount Bonnell and the Driskoll were short but just right. Ari was very knowledgeable and had a few good stories to add! I will definitely do this again any time we have a visitor. And I plan on bringing my 93 year old mom on the 90 minute (non-stop) tour.
