Come see the unexpected!
Our Offbeat Austin Tour (2.5 hr) will take you on a journey through the Austin that isn’t always talked about in the history books. You’ll be seeing hot spots of legends and the still blossoming sagas of local figures and cultural districts, while perusing highlights of the city with the chance to hop off the van and explore on your own!
Who is this tour good for?
This tour is great if you want to know more about the eccentric history woven through Austin’s day to day life. It’s perfect for those that love being immersed in a new culture and it’s grassroots beginnings, fans of true crime and spooky places, as well as having the chance to hear the heartfelt tales of those that made Austin such a proudly offbeat place in the heart of Texas.
What you will see
This tour gives you the behind the scenes stories on the heart and soul of Austin’s music scene, the local heroes like Janis Joplin and Matthew McConaughey, and the tales of hippies, ghosts, and historic sights throughout town. We will be exploring the beauty of Barton Springs Pool and its healing spiritual waters that burst up through the limestone once upon a millennia ago; there will be tales of drum circles and a prancing donkey at Pease District Park; take the chance to explore the famous names of Texas heroes throughout the Texas State Cemetery; and learn about the ghosts with the rise of the luxurious Driskill Hotel. This tour will make you feel truly one with the locals and lore of our great city of Austin!
