Austin: Panoramic City Center Tour with Stops

1. Austin: Panoramic City Center Tour with Stops

With an Austinite as your driver and guide, explore everything from Austin’s towering downtown buildings to its historic architecture, murals, and nature. Enjoy GPS audio narration and stops along the way to fully experience the city’s iconic spots. Put on your sanitized single-use headsets and listen to a GPS-powered audio tour featuring real-time entertaining conversations about the sights you see along the drive, conveniently available in both English and Spanish. For your first stop, visit the James D. Pfluger Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge that arches over Lady Bird Lake. Get out and stroll along part of the bridge, taking in breathtaking views of the water and the city skyline. Learn about Lady Bird Lake’s ecosystem and lesser-known facts about Austin from your guide as you look over the city. Along the way, expect to find out more about gorgeous architecture—and entertaining historical anecdotes—including The Driskill Hotel, the University of Texas campus, and the new development happening downtown. Get plenty of 360-degree views from the comfort of your seat, making it that much easier to see all the special details that line the city streets. Catch glimpses of murals and public art, which might include Monopoly Mural, Dazed & Confused, and the Harmony mosaic, as your guide tells you more about the artists who created them. Stop at the Texas State Cemetery and get out to hear more about the Texas legends who have been laid to rest here. Stephan F. Austin, General Albert Sidney Johnson, Governor John Connally, and Chris Kyle are among the Texas officials buried at this cemetery.
