We were so lucky to have a private tour (since nobody else signed up) with Michael as our tour guide. We covered so much ground and received such great information about the city of Austin. Michael did an outstanding job in asking us what WE wanted to do/see while on this tour.

We had a small tour with a guide and four visitors. The guide was knowledgeable, safety minded and relaxed, and we saw some very cool sites around the city. I strongly recommend this place!
