Viator makes it easy to see all the sites when on vacation. It was convenient, lots of great stops, tour guide was great and informative, luxury van had air conditioning as the Texas weather was triple digits. I downloaded the app for future trips!

Driver was very nice and personable; but such a long drive with no breaks. There were at least four out of 13 that actually fell asleep during the tour.

Hi Gary, We're sorry to hear you weren't happy with your experience, but we appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback on how we could improve our tours. We designed our non-stop 90 minute tour for those who want a whistle stop tour without stops. For our guest who are specifically looking for a tour with stops and photo ops, we have several other options. Hopefully we can better accommodate you in the future. -AO Tours Austin

Ok. But not great
Paul_K
, Mar 2022
The Driver was on time and friendly But he depended on taped information rather than speaking for himself. Not what I expected. More time spent in hill country than in Austin, city. Even more irritating was the inability to stop and get out and take any pictures. Even though these were scenic stops. What’s the point of seeing it when there was an area to stop and take photos? So overall not a bad tour but not one I’d recommend
