1. Austin: Sunset Boat Cruise with Bat Watching
Experience the beauty of Austin at twilight on a sunset cruise, with a guide and hotel transfer included. See the city's top sites like the Willie Nelson Statue, Paramount Theatre, and the Texas Capitol lit up at night. Join a bat-watching tour during March-October. Be greeted by your guide at your downtown Austin accommodation and begin your evening tour in the comfort of a Mercedes Metris van. At dusk, cruise on Austin's Lady Bird Lake and watch the changing skyline. Learn about the city’s culture and friendly locals. Take this tour between March and October, witness Austin's famous Congress Bridge bats. Join your guide on a bat-watching excursion to see fabled Mexican (or Brazilian) free-tailed bats take flight from underneath the Congress Avenue Bridge. Witness the bats under the bridge where a colony of 1.5 million bats reside, one of the biggest colonies of urban bats in the world. Be awestruck at the sight of these bats flying across the colorful evening sky, with speeds of 60 miles per hour. Hop back into the van to enjoy a narrated drive with stops at several iconic landmarks including Pfluger Bridge, Texas State Capitol, the Willie Nelson statue, and Paramount Theatre illuminated at night. Get local insights into the surrounding area from your guide before being taken back to your downtown Austin hotel.
