Great views and insight into Austin history.

Great outing for my parents they didn't require walking. Scheduling was easy and we even received a reminder text in the morning with parking suggestions. The Van was very nice and our tour guide, Doug was very nice and informative. Great views and insight into Austin history.

Austin cemetery, it was very enlightening to know all of the famous people who are buried there. Overall the history of Austin. also, our tour guide Doug was very charismatic and very knowledgeable and I was happy that he was able to share these things with us. Thank you so much Doug.

Rainy Day Monday Tour

This was the first thing we did when we got into Austin. Great tour to get to know and understand the layout of the city. And where our preteens wanted to spend more time for our trip in the upcoming days. Our tour guide was great & knowledgeable, but I’m sorry we can’t remember his name.

Austin in a Nutshell

Doug was an an integral part of making the tour enjoyable! Humor, explanations and a great introduction to the city and hill country.

– Climber277099 on TripAdvisor
If you have a tight schedule, this is what you want!

It was my first time in Austin.The tour was so rich and covered almost all the places I wanted to see. It was in an air conditioned car, so that came very convenient with the cold raining weather. Jack, the guide was so nice and informative. I would definitely recommend it, especially for those who have a tight schedule.

– MireilleSoli on TripAdvisor
Well organised tour

Tour provides a framework for the Austin experience. Takes you through the city's main spots, up to the highest hill and through residential areas so that you get a flavor of Austins past, present and future.

A great way to get a sense of what you want to explore while in Austin

The Library, it is amazing! With beautiful walking space right across the street. Also Doug the driver was a great host, a little bit of historical data with current history of each section of town and interlaced with some funny personal stories. Glad I went!

Austin overview in detail

What a great way to experience Austin. Tour covers a lot of ground with a mix of prerecorded information about the parts of Austin we’re traveling through, alongside the commentary from our tour guide (Doug - who was superb). Highlights for me were Mount Bonnell & Texas State Cemetery (Gene Cernan - what a hero) The tour provides great information, and I’d suggest you do it early in a visit to Austin, it’ll give great guidance on where to spend the rest of your visit.

Doug the Tour Guide

Very well presented and humorous; made everyone in a comfort zone. Doug was very pleasant and helpful. Taking time to explain everything in details. Will recommend this tour to my friends.

– BackbenchersInt on TripAdvisor
A brilliant whistle-stop introduction to Austin and Hill Country with great views.

Can I give this tour six out of 5? A true whistle-stop tour of Austin and Hill Country, with an excellent introduction to this beautiful city, its history & future, and stunning views from Hill Country. Our tour guide was Doug, knowledgeable, funny and a safe driver. His commentary, anecdotes and tips of where to go for food, nightlife and more were spot on. I had originally planned to do a more localized walking tour (but didn't due to timing issues) and I'm glad I did the AO Austin and Hill Country tour instead as it gave me a better introduction and understanding of the city and what it has to offer - and has added lots to my "must see & do" list, much of which I may have remained unaware of without the tour. Thank you Doug for a brilliant 90 min introduction to this amazing city. Please note: this tour (Austin + Hill Country non-stop 90 minute) does not have any photo (or other) stops but you will have great views from the minibus.

– SabineBogeCro on TripAdvisor

Austin city and hill country

This tour was very informative. We were not staying in Austin, so it gave us a good highlight of the city. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and took the time to point out all the best places to eat, activities and history in the area. She gave great history and current interesting facts of the city.The van was very comfortable and it was nice having the top open to see everything more clear. The tour had some audio and also the guide giving the details. It was easy to hear everything It was well worth the money and time. If you do not have a lot of time and want to get a good overview of the city and outlying areas, take this tour!

Doug was a great Tour Guide! Funny, fun and informative about everything Austin has to offer. Comfortable seats, great views, a very intimate tour. Would do again if we came back! Favorite part was definitely the Lake Austin views and stop at the Monarch! Very cool.

– Makenzie C on Google Reviews
It was a really good value.

I did the "Austin + Hill Country Panoramic Tour with Stops" tour, and really enjoyed it. Since I flew in and did not rent a car, this was the best way I found to see the areas outside of downtown that I could not get to on foot. Ari was an excellent guide, and it was a beautiful day for an open-air tour. It was perhaps a little on the pricier side, but when you consider it's a very small-group tour (I think the van only seated maybe 12 and there were only 4 of us on board) and the tour lasted 2.5 hours, it was a really good value.

– Amy J on Google Reviews
We enjoyed the tour and hope you give them a try!

This is a great company with fun people to show you around the Austin area. They have a nice, comfortable Mercedes van that is perfect for sightseeing. We enjoyed the tour and hope you give them a try!

Great overview of Austin to get your bearings and decide what more to see! Highly recommend! (Air conditioned comfy van)

We were going to do the hop on hop off bus tour but it didn’t run early in the week. The Austin Tourist centre recommended this trip and we are so glad we took it! We enjoyed being able to have an overview of Austin, before deciding what we want to see more of. Our driver/guide Doug was entertaining and shared stories and pointed out good places to visit. It was great get up into the hills and see another perspective of Austin. Thanks to Doug we now plan to see State Congress and the city library.

– Wendy M on TripAdvisor

My wife and I had a lot of fun. We went on the Austin + Hill Country Panoramic tour with stops.

We followed some of the suggestions for activities after the tour and got to enjoy a nice evening out as well :) thank you!!

Great tour - especially at beginning of your trip

Tour was great! I think our tour guide was Carson and he was hilarious and so chill. Very knowledgeable and the route taken made a lot of sense for when I wanted to revisit many of the spots we passed. Just the right amount of time for a tour and especially in this hot weather - well air conditioned van was very much appreciated. PS - do this tour at the beginning of your trip if you were being spontaneous like I was! Wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for my trip and this tour gave me some ideas.

Excellent value to get a good look at Austin

If you want a good look at Austin and the surrounding Hills area and do it in comfort and be informed and entertained by a local driver then this tour is for you. It runs for 2.5hrs and with four interesting and scenic stops. Driscoll’s Hotel which is stop #4 is certainly saving the best until last. Stunning historic building and you can leave the tour here and stay and have a drink at the bar.

Be prepared to laugh!

Carson, or whatever his name was, was the man. He was so hilarious I forgot to get clarification on his name. Floral shirt, ear rings, and really funny. He kept us smiling and enjoying the tour the whole time. The van they had was very comfortable and easy to get in and out of. Only 4 people were on the tour, but even with only 4 of us the tour felt full. Overall, awesome experience.

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!

Amazing views!

It was my first time in Austin, so I wanted to see the full city and this tour was great. Tour guide had good energy and the vehicle was comfortable! I only gave it a 4 because there was no glass ceiling on the vehicle I got on ... I was a tad disappointed, but the views were amazing! I did the non-stop, so I'm sure the other option is amazing.

– A Demitri on Google
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.

The tour guide Ms. Ari was awesome. My family enjoyed the bus trip. Very helpful staff(Mary) when called for the parking information and even during the last minutes arrival call I made she made communication to the guide that we were there and waiting at the bus instead we supposed to be at their visitor center. Great price and bus. It's worth to use their service and strongly recommend it. Thank you AO Tours.

A side to Austin we didn’t know existed

The tour was amazing - gave us a great perspective of the many sides of Austin from the stunning hills in the West to the best food trucks in the east. Bus was brand new and very comfortable and the driver made sure we weren’t stuck in traffic wasting the tour. Would highly recommend doing this early in your trip to get your bearings.

Very informative hour and a half tour. Ari was very friendly and helpful with advice on what to do after the tour. Definitely recommend.

– LanceJudy on TripAdvisor
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.

Comfortable way to learn about Austin

We worked our way to the visitors bureau where we met our tour guide Carson. He was very friendly and considerate as he gathered our group together. We were in a comfortable, clean Mercedes air-conditioned van for our tour. It was a great way to see the city as well as the outskirts-Hill Country. Carson was very knowledgeable on his own and, there was a scripted narration as well. He also knew the area very well as he had to navigate traffic and road blocks. There were no opportunities to take photos except through the windows as there are no stops. Thanks Carson for sharing your home town history with us.

Great way to see Austin!

We enjoyed a terrific 90-min tour of downtown Austin with Joel as our driver/guide. The open air van is very comfortable (rides nicely) and most lines of sight are clear and easy to follow. Joel very clearly described what we were seeing, pointed many interesting landmarks, as well as the relevant history and people associated with them. The two brief stops were well-timed to stretch out legs and see some interesting feature up close. We highly recommend to broad overview of downtown Austin.

Just had an amazing whistle stop tour of Austin. We arrived at 12.30pm today and booked this tour for 2.30pm. Great value and as we only have one night in Austin this short but comprehensive tour gave us a really good feel for the city. We had a a fantastic tour guide called Ari who was very knowledgeable, engaging and also drove with ease whilst talking about the sights and recounting lots of interesting facts. If you are short on time like us and would like to take in as much of this beautiful city as you can then you have to do this tour.

Very good way to see Austin, TX

The tour covered a lot of Austin and the tour guide was ver6 knowledgeable about the area. The recorded narrator gave some very good historical information about the different landmarks and sites as well. Seeing the tall man looking up and the view from Mount Bonnell was my favorite sites.

Our tour guide Ari was so great and we ended up hitting up 2 spots I personally wanted to check out! All the stops were lovely, Mt. Bonell and the Greetings from Austin mural. The open bus is a lot of fun and a nice idea to embrace to nice weather!

Solo traveler photographer

The driver Ari was amazing, full of info, and answered all our questions. As someone who loves to take photos, there were not a lot of opportunities other than one stop. I was able to take take a few out the window. But this was a very enjoyable tour, especially because Ari spoke a lot and did not rely just on the audio recording. My one issue is traveling solo feels like a crime. I get charged more!! This seems to be a theme in this city. However I would certainly do this one again.

Make sure to choose AO you won't regret it

Let me premise this with I am not a fan of tourist city tours and if I ever do go on one it's usually just a map I paid to go on. With that said this tour was extremely entertains and our driver Joel was very easy to listen and very engaging! I thought for sure I had just paid $49 to take a nap but I was severely mistaken!! The tour was very informative and gave some excellent details about the amazing city of Austin!!! If you're choosing to do a tour in Austin make sure to choose AO you won't regret it. Also make sure to ask for Joel you won't be disappointed

A View of the Eclectic City of Music and Food

Dow was our tour guide. He is a native Texan and knew so many unique things besides the highlights of Austin. The vehicle was warm and comfortable with large windows for easy viewing, the audio was clear, Dow was open to questions and interested in where the guests were from. Even though the weather was chilly with a light rain, the tour was great!!

First time to Austin, I’ll be back!

I was in town for a meeting and had time to spare. Not knowing the city of Austin at all I decided the tour would be a great way to get a good overview. It was 90 minutes with both narration by recording and information from the driver/host. I thoroughly enjoyed the time and what I learned about Austin. It made me want to return to actually enjoy what the city has to offer.

Ranks at the top!

Our tour guide was knowledgeable friendly, humorous and easy to understand. We had head phones with some prerecorded narration plus the driver’s comments. Both were appreciated. Every stop was enjoyable and nicely timed. We were blessed with beautiful weather so the top was open. We have done city tours in many places as we travel and this was one of the best. It was nice to avoid Austin traffic!

Sunday's tour, Austin +Hill Country 90-minute Non-Stop was very nice.

I think our guide was Kim and she explained all areas as we drove past with exciting views. I had been waiting for a long time to see the Penny-backer bridge and I finally got my wish. The van was kind of uncomfortable since it was smaller than the larger Mercedes black van with open top. Overall, I would recommend this day trip. Thanks go to our knowledgeable guide.

The whole experience was effortless from the booking, finding the pick up spot and completing the tour. Our guide was a native of Wisconsin but claimed Austin her home of 20 years.

The tour guide was great. He drove past all the interesting spots in Austin. Viator, on the other hand, was the middleman and not great. I booked the tour and then had to find the physical address to drive to. It was nowhere to be found online. I called and a man with a very thick accent was difficult to understand, and took 15 minutes to find the address. Luckily, someone from the tour company called and guided me into the right parking lot. The Mercedes van was spacious, comfortable and clean. So the tour company was A+, the Viator folks get an F.

Go for the hills AND the town tour

Truly enjoyed the broader perspective of both town and the hills - no one on bus had realized how many hills and lakes surround the city of Austin; some great stories and history; very comfortable to ride around in air conditioned van on such a hot Austin afternoon; And very clean van with HUGE windows so everyone can see easily; fun to see the vastly different neighborhoods; to hear the back story on some of the buildings, etc. then we got off at the stop closest to Velvet Tacos which were excellent

Relaxing tour

This tour gave us the experience of seeing an area of Austin to which we never would have ventured. The weather was hot, but the A/C was pumping and the retractable roof allowed a nice breeze to cool things off.

Great Start to a Visit

We took this tour on our first morning in Austin. The vehicle is one of the best touring vehicle I have been in. The top opens so you can see everything and even with the top closed, the glass surrounds you so you can still see very well. There is a canned narrative keyed by GPS. In between canned messages the driver interjected a lot of additional information. You should definitely do this early in your visit so you get a lay of the land for planning the rest of your stay.

– Stephen C on TripAdvisor
Fun in the sun!

We had a wonderful, knowledgeable guide and she handle the bus like a pro with all of the extra holiday traffic. Great off the beaten path sights and beautiful views. We had the top down so be sure and bring sunscreen and water to keep hydrated. Excellent trip, Thank you!!

Great Tour!

Great tour, wish I did this at the beginning of the trip instead of before heading home. I missed seeing a lot of Austin, I guess it gives me another reason to return.

Comfortable Trip

It was a great experience. The driver/tour guide was very nice and considerate of my parents (they are late 60’s-mid 70’s). Great way to see the sights and not have to personally drive around town. This was a 46th anniversary trip for my parents and they thoroughly enjoyed it and so did I. Tips: wear a hat and sunscreen due to heat and bring water/beverage. The tour we took was 2.5hr in a convertible and we loved it because we were prepared.

Our guide was excellent.

Our guide was excellent. We were a party of six sisters 5 from St. Louis MO, and a transplant from Alaska. We enjoyed the tour with Ari.

Highly Recommend!

This is one of the best, if not the best, tour we have been on. Guide was fun and informative, van was immaculately clean, and took us to interesting places in Austin we would not have seen ourselves. The weather was nice so the open air part of the trip was wonderful.

– Susie on Viator
Great City Tour

A very comprehensive city tour of Austin in the comfort of an open convertible Sprinter driven by Ari, our expert guide. Included landmarks, parks and architecture as well as interesting history! Nice photo ops and 2 stops to stretch our legs and do a bit of additional sightseeing. An excellent value for the experience!

Highly recommend it to anyone going to Austin as a tourist.

Our tour guide Ari was very enjoyable and gave great advice and insight about the city. What I loved most about this tour was that it gave us a chance to see not just downtown, but some of the hill country, suburbs, and other places that you otherwise would have never gotten to see if you were only spending your trip downtown. This was the PERFECT way to start our 4-day vacation in the city, and I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Austin as a tourist.

Excelente y divertida experiencia

Gran experiencia para conocer la ciudad y los alrededores. Te llevan en una camioneta con el techo descubierto, así tus fotos salen muy claras, con las vistas panorámicas. Hacen paradas para fotos o comprar algo rápido. Sí hace calor o el sol está muy fuerte lleva líquidos para beber, sombrero o gorra. Puedes escuchas la narración en español a través de audífonos que ellos te proporcionan. Muy puntual el servicio. El trato del guía es personalizado. Lo recomiendo vale el precio. El tour sale del "visitor center", en el centro de la ciudad, que cuenta con estacionamiento de pago.

– pacolounge on TripAdvisor
Enjoy the ride

So happy we chose to take a tour while in Austin. Ari was our guide and provided facts and trivia and humor throughout the tour. The 90 minute tour time is perfect for busy tourists. And the prices for souvenirs at the Austin Visitor Center are great.

Thank you AO for the service

I and my family are happy that we took the city tour. The guide gave us a good insight into the vibrant Austin. Austin east west north and south all have their own distinct identity. Unfortunately we took this tour on the day of the return. I recommend this to be taken on the first day of your first time visit to Austin so that you can plan better. The tour made us leave Austin with a happy note.

Great way to see the City/Hill Country

I was in Austin for a weekend and this was a great way to see the City/Hill Country with the time I had. Our guide Joel was extremely knowledgeable of the area and gave a lot of interesting historical insight and suggestions on places to visit after the tour. The drive through the hill country was also wonderful, lots of amazing views of the hills and city in the distance.

This was a very comfortable and interesting tour. In the past we have always booked on the hop on/ hop off bus, this is so much better! Love the open top of the van. Love that we are able to get out and explore at different stops. Love the commentary provided both by the guide and the pre programmed audio. Loved that it was a small group with extra Covid precautions. Really loved everything about this❤️

All incapsulating tour

My trip on a yucky rainy day had a bright spot in it with the superior guide - Avery - a handsome, articulate and well versed young man. The highlights, the architecture, & history-all amazing! A well conducted, entertaining and informative tour. And just the perfect length of time w/o becoming boring. Highly recommend.

Amazing tour and Bri, our tour guide, was fantastic!!

Amazing tour and Bri, our tour guide, was fantastic!! She was super knowledgeable and made the whole tour fun. There is so much history to Austin and we learned quite a bit. I actually wish the tour would have lasted longer. It was so nice to see all the different neighborhoods of Austin and see what they all offered.

We had a great time!

Scheduled a private walking tour with AO tours. We had a great time! Our tour guide Tyler was very knowledgeable and able to answer any history questions we had! He was very friendly and seemed to really love showing people around! Highly recommend if you want to walk around downtown! Only recommendation I would have is that for the restaurant portion they had a pre-fix menu and the food was ready when you arrived so that way it was quicker stops! I know this is a new tour for AO so they are probably working the kinks out. But that would have streamlined the process.

– Emily R on Google Reviews
Malina was such a SWEETIE!!

She was so nice to my kids and family . I often tend to be a guy that is outgoing and cheerful and it’s tough to get others to match my energy but she was just as cheerful as i was. She went above and beyond for our family. the customer service is top notch, I was getting recommendations for places before the store even began by texting the number on their Website once I had booked a tour. They’re a company that value safety . I really appreciated the extra precautions they take on the kids wearing appropriate car seat equipment. It shows they’re truly caring people and want the best for the customers. I will def return again and bring my parents from Houston.

Last minute call

We were in Austin for the day and decided on a last minute tour. We had no problem getting tickets, our driver Ari was great. We drove by different points of interest and stopped at Lady Bird Lake. The van was clean, masks are required and temperature was taken prior to boarding.

– lbglorione on TripAdvisor
Very informative!

Went on the tour with Joel as our guide. There is a lot of ground to cover in 90 minutes and Joel did a great job explaining everything, giving us tips where to eat, what to go back to see, etc. The tour was well worth the time and cost. Would highly recommend to see Austin and all it has to offer.

– Meterrose on TripAdvisor
All of Austin!

We had a limited amount of time to explore Austin so chose to take this 90 min. mini-bus tour. Our driver, Avery, was wonderful. He was great company, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. There was another couple on our tour, and Avery made sure we followed the safety protocol carefully -using hand sanitizer and wearing our masks, and, the bus was large and comfortable enough for us to stay safely separated. So we felt safe. We got to see all that Austin has to offer, and learn about the history and geography of this vibrant city. I loved riding up to the top of the escarpment and seeing the beautiful homes on Mount Bonnell. I never expected anyplace in Texas to look like that! After the tour we had some time to explore one of the beautiful city parks along Lady Bird Lake, visit the “Bat Bridge” and returned to an area full of great places to enjoy a bite to eat - all of which we learned about on our tour. A wonderful day!

I really enjoyed this tour. Normally I’m not a big tour guy but this won me over. The fact that it was open air on a gorgeous day certainly helped. Ari was a great guide.

Would definitely recommend it Thx, Ari!

Austin in a Nutshell

The guide was very nice, good energy. The bus was very nice and clean. It's a a "cliff notes" version of the city that gets your feet wet quickly in 90mins. It sort of leaves you wishing for more depth but for the price I thought it was entertaining.

– CrDave1983 on TripAdvisor
Very good overview of the town!

Loved the tour! Quick, prompt, quality. The bus is really new, clean, and the windows are also clean!!(most tour buses usually have dirty windows). Really sweet and knowledgeable guide, took her time to explain/tell information that was interesting for us. This is for sure the best way to see the city and the hills to get overall good understating of the area. We were very satisfied!

A New Sight to See

I appreciate this tour because I have lived in Texas all of my life. I learned more on this tour then what I knew about Austin. It made me really look at Austin differently and understand why it's a great place to visit and live. My tour guide was so full of knowledge and she was pleasant.

Great Intro to Austin

If you are new to Austin and want an overview of the area, this is the tour to take. It is about 90 minutes long, and our tour guide Andrew was well-informed, friendly and interesting. The starting point of this tour is difficult because there is so much construction going on around the Visitors Center. Once we parked in the suggested pubic parking lot (only $5 flat fee) we walked around looking for the meeting place at the Visitors Center. I called the tour company and spoke to Mary, who was extremely friendly and helpful, and she led us to the spot. Thanks to Andrew and Mary for a very pleasant morning touring 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!

Wonderful guide, with COVID 19 we were a 2 person tour, and we were accommodated well.

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.

She called me right back and made it happen. We had Malina as our tour guide and she was amazing. She went over and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our trip. She was a joy to meet so make sure to ask for Malina.

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.

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!

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.

We did land and a boat tour, but this by far was the best.

We loved this Austin tour.

My husband and myself had been to Austin before but didn't really know where to start. This weekend we planned a vacation there and decided to go on a tour to gain some insight on the good spots to see, things to do and good places to eat. We loved this tour. The guide was a ton of fun and he showed us everything great about Austin, he also gave a ton of information on spots and why for instance the Court House has an armadillo tail sticking out the back of the building. The next day we drove the tour route in our own vehicle and knew right were to stop for some fun and views.

Amazing Austin Tour with Ari

All you wanted to know about Austin in under two hours. Aria was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. A touch of humor sealed the deal. I highly recommend this tour if you are pressed for time. I doubt you will have a better guide than Aria :)

Good Austin Area Tour.

Our guide Joel was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was also a very good driver. The van was clean and in good condition. We enjoyed our tour which provided a good overview of the Austin area.

So knowledgeable!!

Ari was an incredible tour guide for us! We are new to the city and loved learning about our new home!

Just what we wanted!

This is a great little tour. Perfect amount of time. My 24-year-old son and I had taken the tour before moving to Ausin 2 years ago, and I knew it was the best way to give my visiting friends a quick intro without the stress of fighting the traffic and being tour guide. We took the tour on a Thursday at 12:30. That gave us time to have breakfast and enjoy a walk around Lady Bird Lake before the heat kicked in. It was one of those hot days and it was so comfortable and relaxing in that Mercedes van. Each tour guide has their own style, and they give you the historical highlights spiced with some of their own favorite places and experiences. A heads up here: The tours run very efficiently and leave right on schedule. We almost missed it, but my tour guide gave me a personal call to see where we were. We parked in the visitor center garage on 5th Street. Very convenient. Do give yourself a minimum of 15 minutes after parking to browse the visitor center and use the conveniences before boarding the van! After the tour, at 2:30, we were able to walk to Stub's, one of the recommended, for a Texas BBQ lunch after the crowds! And we still had time to visit some of the other places that we saw on this tour. WORTH EVERY PENNY!

A must do Austin tour

Instead of driving around, getting lost and not knowing the history or importance of the places we'd find, we took the tour to really hear and see the different parts of Austin. Andrew pointed out the highlights of each area. We were really glad we did the tour.

– Carolkn_12 on TripAvisor
A great Austin tour.

A really well done and informative 1.5 hour tour. The bus was very comfortable and the guide, Andrew, extremely knowledgeable and charming. He mixes his chatter with some prerecorded facts presented by actors, a clever mixture . Excellent value and a really effective way to find out about Austin.

Rainy Day Activity

Our first morning in Austin was cold and rainy so we decided to take a tour of the city so we could see where we wanted to come back to. Ari, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was good to see the Hill Country which we probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise. If you are looking for a way to see Austin and learn about its history, I highly recommend this tour!

Perfect for getting an overview of what Austin has to offer

I enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we were able to get an overall view of Austin and the surrounding hill country. Easy, convenient pickup point. Great if you want to leave the driving to someone else!

Beautiful Austin

I really enjoyed this tour of Austin. We drove to places I never would have found on my own. The van was very comfortable and the driver was knowledgeable and friendly. I'm glad there were opportunities to get out and explore at some of the stops.

The tour guide, Ike, was awesome! Recommend for sure!

Austin tour was among the best

Great tour of the Capital and surrounding areas of interest in the Austin area. Driver was knowledgeable and friendly. It's a bargain to get to know Austin in about 90 min., and it gets you out of the heat on a hot humid Summer day. Busses are first class and very comfortable. Having done bus tours in many cities around the U.S. and Europe, I can say that this tour was among the best I have been on.

Outstanding Tour of Austin!!

I took advantage of this tour during my visit to Austin. Very pleased that I made this decision. Outstanding use of 90 minutes!! Ari, our tour leader, did a great job of telling us all about this great city. Going on this tour is a “must do” tour opportunity!!

Lots of fun facts

Aiden was able to fill in lots of fun facts and info in-between the recorded messages. I also took the double decker tour and although that was fun, this was much more informative.

Visit to Austin

As this was our first time to Austin, my wife and I wanted an overview of what Austin was like. Our guide Ari, was terrific in showing us the geography of the Hill Country, the various cultural, artistic and dinning areas of the city and surrounding area. 90 min to an hour and we then knew what we wanted to see and do for the rest of our stay. Highly recommend this tour for a quick and informative way to plan your visit.

Cotton Bowl w/Texas vacation trip

AO Tours was a nice SAFE tour company recommended to us by the local Marriott hotel. We toured in a luxurious go anywhere 4 wheel drive Land Rover. The tour guide was very nice and professional and showed us a good time. We bought her lunch at great little dive on the strip. It beats being on a big bus with a bunch of loud talkin know-it-alls that can ruin a tour. Also, you get to work with the tour guide in selecting what is of your interest in visiting. In my opinion, it's certainly worth paying extra and always going the private custom tour route when traveling.

Austin + Hill Country Sightseeing Tour

We did not rent a car while In Austin so took this tour to see more of the city than we could see on foot and also to see some of the hill country. The van was comfortable and we were fortunate that not all seats were filled so we were able to sit in the most forward seat with plenty of room and where we could see out the front windshield as well as the side windows. Not all passengers enjoyed the same broad view. It was a great way to see the city and hill country with a guide to highlight the key sights!

Made enjoying Austin so much easier

Our tour was nice and we enjoyed seeing Austin. But the best part was the recommendations from the driver for entertainment and food.

Had a great Austin tour.

Bri was our driver/guide. She is very knowledgeable about Austin. I would recommend this tour for sure. Hook ‘em

This is a great service!

This is a great service! Had some family in town that wanted to see more than we really had time to see - we set them up on an AO Tour and they LOVED it! It was perfect. And left plenty of time for al of us to do our family event together as well. GREAT for visiting family or probably business travelers who dont have tons of time but want to see more of Austin than just the few blocks around their hotel. Air conditioning too! Not all of the tour companies have it, surprisingly.

Christmas visit

We had a wonderful time and it was so informative. Unfortunately we did the tour our last day, would suggest doing it one of your first days to get a better overview of everything to do. We had a wonderful tour guide, can’t remember her name, but she was funny and kept you entertained.

Andrew was an excellent and thoughtful guide on our tour of Austin and the hill country.

– Angie Gearig Gallegos on Facebook
Very informative

Excellent tour! Our guide was Andrew and he was very knowledgeable and we felt like we got a great overview of Austin and the hill country. The tour gave us several ideas of areas we plan to return to and explore in depth. He also gave us some restaurant recommendations and a bar where we could enjoy live music with a family member that is under 21. I highly recommend this tour!

– HaveFamFun on TripAdvisor

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.

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. 👀 You might be thinking, "It's just a tour, not that biggo deal lol" but for a person who grew up in these areas, went to grade school in these areas, had weird first dates + pep rallies in these areas, had fist fights + field trips in these areas - it's absolutely bittersweet to be reminded of just how every building + every tree comes into play for the bigger picture. 👉🏼🖼 So much has changed + is still changing, growing. 🌱It's weird to pass by a place you used to have to sneak into lol 🤫+ see that now it's become a condo with food joints on the first level + corporate across the street. Change is the only constant, that's for sure. Even though Austin's scenery is (always) in flux, it's just as beautiful if not moreso. This tour reminded me of that fact + for that, I'm thankful. 🙏🏽✨

Austin City tour

If you only have a few days in Austin, these people run a great tour. Don't miss it. You will get a good overview of the area and learn where to go on your own.

Good overview of Austin for a reasonable price

We took this (90 Minute non-stop) in January of 2020. Was very comfortable....we had only about 7 in our van. It covers a good amount of territory, but no stops.

a great way to see a lot of Austin

A friend and I toured with Malina. The recordings were informative. Malina was enthusiastic and filled in any gaps. It was a great way to see a lot of Austin in a relatively short time.

Wonderful & Beautiful Austin!

Excellent tour of a beautiful city. You get to see so many places, plus the beautiful Hill Country. The tour tries to cover some parts of all the directions of the city (east, west, north, and south Austin). The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was smooth and informative.

We saw Lyndon B Johnson’s birth home and his ranch. We saw the Texas Hill country, went shopping in Fredericksburg and wine tasting. It was sure an amazing time since this was my first visit to Austin, TX.

Great overview of Austin

My sister and I took the 90 minute tour to get an overview of Austin. We had 3 days to explore Austin and this was a great way to get the “lay of the land”. We took several suggestions from our tour guide, Andrew, including lunch at Franklin Barbecue, a visit to the amazing Library, a visit to Shady Grove, Rainey Street, Zilker Park and the spring fed pool. Fun times!

Nice Introduction to Austin Tour This review is for our Austin + Hill Country Sightseeing Tour 90 minute non-stop tour

We enjoyed the tour and it gave a good introduction to the city. Note that this is not a stop and get off (even for a minute or two) tour. I would have liked just one stop at the most scenic part which was the Hill Country.

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. The tour starts downtown, takes you into Westlake/The Hill Country, passes by UT campus, and wraps up with the East side. They cover some basics that tourists want to know, like Sandra Bullock living here, but also some really great nuggets, i.e. the history of Clarksville.

Great tour!

We enjoyed the tour in the minivan. Our guide, Tyler, did a fantastic job, he drove well, he told fascinating and took plenty of time for us. If you want to see a lot of Austin in a short time, this is highly recommended! (original - We hebben genoten van de tour in de minibus. Onze gids, Tyler, deed t fantastisch , hij reed goed, hij vertelde boeiend en nam ruim de tijd voor ons. Als je veel van Austin wil zien in een korte tijd is dit echt een aanrader !)
