Picked up from our hotel and joined the others for our tour. Nice small group (max. 7). Went up to the top of the needle, then to the Alamo, the Grotto, the Pearl, and ended the night with a River Walk boat ride. Brian was incredibly knowledgeable of the city. This was a great tour on the first night in town as it gave us ideas of what to do the next two days. Highly recommend.

It was amazing. The driver-guide, Loretta, was so knowledgeable and friendly so we really enjoyed all her lectures and stories. My wife and I would recommend taking this tour.

We had a great tour guide Trace. He is awesome. Made the ride to and back not boring. Great food at Salt Lick and wine was great at both wineries. We meet beautiful people ❤.

Best tour I have I been on. Vehicle is very comfortable. Trace is a star. If I can give him 10 stars I would. Really highly recommend for everybody.

Would recommend this tour. Great overview of the city from an insider’s point of view. Easy ride for all biking skill levels.
