Full description
How did Austin get its “weird” reputation? Why is Willie Nelson worshiped like a god-king? What’s the deal with all the bats? Why are locals getting into bar fights over the best breakfast taco? Find out all these answers and more — even if some of it may shock you — on the Weird Austin City Tour.

Your guide trolled the archives, pestered locals, and maybe even did a little dumpster diving to know all the weird and wild tales of Austin. And now they want to share them with you. You will discover the best of everything Austin has to offer: live music, food trucks, weird people, and oh so much more.

Make lots of killer stops along the way, with chances to sample local foods, have a snack included in your tour, buy local craft beers, and snap cool photos of local street art and the downtown skyline. As an added bonus, a local musician is riding shotgun to strum up some singalong classics and a few original tunes. So if you are ready to do a little dance and make a little love to this incredible Texas city than this is the ride for you.

Great, fun experience. Our guides were engaging and informative and very focused on making sure the group had a good time. Little Willie has a great voice and serenaded us with silly songs about Austin. Good times!!
