Experience the real Austin

This “bucket list tour” gives you a city overview in just 2 hours. Major landmarks, lesser known gems that only a local would know about, real neighborhoods, and of course, the food trucks! This is definitely not a typical “van tour.” We drive in Mercedes vans, but you get out at many stops. Along the way we’ll chat about art, music, culture, food, history, parks, famous people, and much more! We’ll also discover secret spots, hear funny stories, and decipher local legends. Make new memories and laugh a ton as we show you how we “Keep Austin Weird.” Finally experience Austin, don’t just see it through a window!

Public tour is only $35
Private tour starts at $50 (7-10 people)
* Final price is dependent on number of people. Inquire for more information! *

Daily — 9:30am, 10:30am, 12:30pm, & 1:30pm
Friday & Saturday — 4:30pm
