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!
