What people are saying about Austin

Martin Moeller is very personable and is very knowledgeable about local city history and nuances of the local music scene in Austin. We enjoyed his conversation between venues almost as much as we enjoyed the three clubs we visited. I think this could not have gone better and the evening was everything we hope it would be. Martin's knowledge and professionalism was a big part of fulfilling our expectations.

Great bars and presentation. Lots of discussion on the many Austin murders. The weather made it more difficult to enjoy, but that's outside the guide's control.

The views were amazing! But the stories were told in very loud areas that made it hard for all people on the tour to hear.

A nice walk from bar to bar with Austin true crime stories.
