My friend and I came to Austin for a girls weekend and wanted to experience Salt Lick & some wineries but didn't want to have to rent a car. This was the perfect amount of time and our guide, Jax was AMAZING! Highly recommend!

Jax was great. Friendly, informative and fun. Happily took pictures whenever we needed. Had some decent BBQ, great wine and enjoyed a scenic ride in hill country. A fun experience!
