  • From Austin: Hill Country BBQ & Wine Shuttle

    4. From Austin: Hill Country BBQ & Wine Shuttle

    Meet your guide in downtown Austin at the visitor center, then board your shuttle bus for the day and head out into the sprawling Texan countryside. The first stop of the day is Austin’s most famous BBQ joint, Salt Lick BBQ. At the BBQ, enjoy a tasting session of some of the very best meat and food that Texas has to offer, and soak up this friendly atmosphere. The tour does not include the cost of the tasting. It's recommended to budget $35 per person for your meal, however, you can bring your own alcohol to enjoy with your food. After the BBQ, you'll wind through the hills and stop at two different wineries so that you can sample delicious Texas wines - all while taking in those gorgeous hill country views.

    My friend and I came to Austin for a girls weekend and wanted to experience Salt Lick & some wineries but didn't want to have to rent a car. This was the perfect amount of time and our guide, Jax was AMAZING! Highly recommend!
