My friend and I visiting from the UK took this tour on the 6th July this year. The tour is taken in a comfortable air conditioned van as shown in the photos. Areas covered included downtown Austin, the area south of the city, the hill country (the main event where the bulk of the tour takes place), and the north of the city. Our tour guide and driver, whos name I regrettably forget, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and clearly took a lot of pride in his city and his job (he's native to Austin). There was a wealth of information on the various landmarks around the area, complimented with some pre-recorded talks on the more prominent points of the tour. The atmosphere was both informative and light hearted, with interesting tidbits and humour thrown in. The area covered was broad and provided some great views of the hill country and the city itself, as well as a trip through some historic outskirts. A range of interests were also catered for, from the music scene, food, history, politics, arts, all the way to notable local residents past and present. Overall, you will be treated to some unforgettable views and local flavor that are well worth the price of admission. Absolutely recommended for first-timers in the city as well as people who have been there before, like my friend and I. Overall a fantastic 90 minutes that was a great addition to our trip.
