We highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Marty Moeller was fantastic. Very attentive, entertaining, informative, funny, caring, and knowledgeable about Austin. He gave us plenty of tips to navigate our way around the city. He made suggestions about where to eat and what to see. Choose the tour and you will be happy you did.
Our tour guide, Nick, was great! He was so informative and funny! We learned a lot about the Live Music Capital of the World, with lots of history and lots of fun facts! I highly recommend this tour and you will be especially lucky if Nick is your tour guide!
This company is top-notch! We booked two private tours, one to Waco, one to San Antonio. Our transportation was super-high-quality. Our guide for both trips was Chris Gonzalez. I can't imagine that anyone could be better than him, because he was the BEST!!!! Courteous, fun, extremely knowledgeable in history, answered all our questions. Our trips were customized to our requests and interests. The whole experience with Austin Detours was wonderful!!! Thank you so much. We four ladies from the Badger state highly recommend Austin Detours....and it turns out the owner is from Sheboygan, Wisconsin!!! Again, thank you, Chris and Austin Detours.
Hi. I signed up for the Real Austin Tour for tomorrow. Is that a walking tour or do we ride in a vehicle?
