Full description

Explore Austin, the state capital of Texas, with a local guide on a van tour of the city's highlights. Enjoy top attractions and visitor experiences while avoiding long lines and wait times on a fully guided and narrated tour with all entry tickets included.

Meet your guide at your downtown Austin hotel and begin your fully guided tour in the comfort and style of a Mercedes Metris van. Kick your tour off with a self-guided visit of the Texas Capitol - the seat of government for the state of Texas. This Italian Renaissance Revival style building was constructed between 1882 and 1888 and sits atop a hill overlooking the downtown Austin area. Ranked within the top 100 "America’s Favorite Architecture" (2007), it is the sixth-tallest state capitol.

Walk around the grounds and visit some of the monuments and statues scattered throughout the grounds such as the Heroes of Alamo, the Confederate Soldiers Monument, or the Volunteer Firemen Monument. After the Capitol, hop back into your van and enjoy a narrated driving tour with stops at several iconic landmarks. Stop at several places to get the best views of the city, including the French Legation — one of the oldest houses in Austin —, Pfluger Bridge — a beautiful pedestrian and bicycle bridge spanning Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin —, and Lou Neff Point —a stunning look-out point with a gazebo overlooking the city. At the end of your tour, head back to your downtown Austin hotel.
