Full description
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.

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.

Our tour guide Kelty was excellent! She was born and raised in Austin and did a great job giving us fun facts about Austin and interesting tidbits about the venues we visited. She was super friendly and at the end our the excursion she gave us personalized recommendations for other things to do in Austin based on the conversations she had with us! BBQ was good and the wine was surprisingly great at both of the vineyards
