Our guide was informative and funny hit on a lot of info about Austin plus a quick trip to the Capital and then a sweet treat at the end. Guide made everyone feel comfortable and at the end of the tour everyone was talking and enjoyed the tour. Highly recommend.

Great tour and super informative. Tour guide (gosh, sorry forgot his name but he is also a stand up comedian!) was awesome! Super knowledgable and full of fun and interesting facts and anecdotes about Austin and Texas history. Was exactly what I was hoping it would be. Really enjoyed the experience!

Jason Weems, our tour guide this past weekend is both knowledgeable and passionate about Austin. His attitude rubs off; I'm ready to return for another visit. Jason also has a great (non-snarky) sense of humor. I was amazed at how much this tour managed to fit in to only 2+ hours. I highly recommend this tour.
