1. Austin: 2-Hour Sightseeing Bike Tour

Embark on a 2-hour bike tour of Austin and pedal down to some of the famous spots around downtown and the river front. A local guide will lead you along a route that also takes back streets and hiking trails beloved by locals.

Then, take a stop at the South Congress Avenue Bridge and learn about the largest urban colonization of bats in North America. From there, head towards the new boardwalk for amazing views of the Austin skyline. See Austin's hottest entertainment district, Rainey Street, and learn how it came to be.  Finish your tour by heading up north to the Texas State Capitol, where you'll be able to go inside and admire the famous rotunda.

We (teenage daughter , husband and I) had such a great time on our 2 hour bike tour of the city. Our guide Tanner was great - friendly and knowledgeable about the city. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Austin. If you are on the fence- book this tour!

Our guide, Parker, was amazing. He seemed to be enjoying everything as much as we were. He was genuine, engaging, informative, humorous, safe. He made our experience enjoyable and educational.

Our guide, Tanner, was awesome! It rained off and on, but we still had a blast exploring Austin. We took his advice and came back to the Congress Bridge at sunset to see the bats!

Excellent tour of Austin. River trails, parks, State Capital and neighbourhoods. Parker was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, great sense of Texas history.

Small group which was great! Informative and fun. Learned a lot about Austin.
