Michael was an awesome tour guide, he showed us great spots and was super knowledgeable. It was a great way to get to know the city our first day. He pointed out places for us to come back to and explore more and provided us with plenty of cold water (very much appreciated). I highly recommend!!

This trip really covers the highlights of downtown Austin, takes you on the trails and through a bit of the city. My tour guide was a wealth of facts and history. I would definitely recommend this if you’re visiting or new to Austin.

I arrived in Austin without a car and decided the best way to see the city was my bicycle. I signed up with the city bike tour and when I arrived I was told I was the only one who signed up that day. Maybe the humidity & excessive heat had something to do with it. It did not deter me and I’m thankful. Michael, my fearless leader gave me a one-on-one tour of your magical city! Not only was he knowledgeable of each point of interest but he was warm and a pleasure! He stole my heart when we discovered a turtle in crisis and we stopped so Michael could lead her back to safety and water!!! Thank you to ALL of you at the shop for giving me a first rate glimpse of Austin. Your kindness will be remembered!!!
