Custom Tour Reviews

Brilliant tour, brilliant team

"Mary set up a custom tour to orient a group of international interns for our Hotel. Our guide Keith was exceptional! He took the group on a West Austin hour-long tour that was amazingly informative, funny, and perfectly paced. Even as a long-time Austin resident I learned a ton and visited a few spectacular locations that I have never visited. Whether you are just visiting the city or have been here for decades - you will learn more about our wonderful city than you ever thought possible."

Custom Private Winery Tour

"I used AO Tours to coordinate a private tour to three wineries as part of my bachelorette party. The planning process was a breeze, and it was clear that the relationship they had with the wineries really helped. Our tour guide was fun and charming, and his knowledge of Austin was on point as well! One of the best days I have ever had."

Custom Bachelor Party Tour

INCREDIBLE TOUR OPERATOR FOR A BACHELOR PARTY!!! The best decision I made for this trip was to use AO Tours. I was planning a Bachelor Party and I realized that Austin has so much to offer. I reached out to a few tour operators but Mary was by far the most flexible and professional. She planned out a custom tour through Breweries and distilleries, we had reservations everywhere we went and an amazing tour guide. Bri was our tour guide and she made the tour stress free and fun. Thank you so much for this experience and your hard work setting it up.

Private 3 hour tour - Just the BEST!!!

We booked two morning private 3-hour tours for our group of 12. Actually each ended up as 4 hours as there was so much to see and do. Each tour was unique in that we selected where we wanted to go, what we wanted to see, and when we wanted to stop. Mary Davidson could not have been more helpful in designing the tours to meet our special interests. We went to places, not on the usual tour route, including Casa Neverlandia, Laguna Gloria Sculpture Gardens, Rick Van Dyke Studio, outdoor sculptures, etc. Our bus driver/tour director was Bri Tomlin, an incredibly knowledgeable individual and willing to make changes and stops as we went along. An added advantage was the comfortable Mercedes van that picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off where we asked.

Great private group tour

The week before a wedding in Austin, I arranged two private tours for our group of family and friends on Saturday morning. AO Tours was great to work with, great customer service, fast response and I would highly recommend them.
