The Real Austin Tour

Monday, October 16, 10:30 am-1:00 pm
$105.00 per person

Discover the best of the city in just two hours! This fast-paced “bucket list” tour gives visitors a great snapshot of Austin: get dizzy gazing upward at the Capitol’s dome, indulge in a decadent treat from a local Austin eatery, explore cool outdoor art, snap photos at city landmarks, and check out funky neighborhoods only a local would know about. This detour is jam-packed with facts, history, and trivia on everything from Whole Foods to the UT campus, and everyone from Michael Dell to Willie Nelson. By the time you’re done with this tour, you’ll be able to say you “get” Austin – the history, people, music, culture, food and what keeps it “weird.” If you’re looking for a snappy quick overview of the city, or just need to prove to the social media universe you were in Austin, this is the tour for you!
