Our guide was engaging. We didn't have an opportunity to stop and experience sceneries on the tour. We later found out that we were not on the tour we had paid for. We got a full refund and credit for another tour.

Our tour guide did a nice job keeping us entertained. I had 2 issues: first of all the tour lasted only 1.5 hour not 2.5 as it’s advertised. There is another tour advertised as an hour and a half for less price. I paid more to get the 2.5 hours so I was a bit disappointed.

Hi Judit, I'm glad our guide was entertaining, but I want to sincerely apologize for the fact that you did not receive the correct tour. We are going to look at how we can adjust our process so that this type of mix up doesn't happen in the future. We understand that this doesn't fix what happened with your experience, so we are going to fully refund the tickets for all guests on this tour. Thank you for bringing these issues up so we can address them promptly. I can assure you that your experience is not what we are known for, and I hope that you will give us another chance in the future to show your a better experience. So in addition to a full refund for this tour, we would like to offer you complimentary tickets for a future tour. Thank you!

Having Malina as our guide was my favorite aspect of the tour — she’s PHENOMENAL!!! This was my second tour with Malina; she knows the city so well that she’s able to share insights and “behind the scenes” details and history, which makes things extra interesting!

I really enjoyed this tour of Austin. We drove to places I never would have found on my own. The van was very comfortable and the driver was knowledgeable and friendly. Im glad there were opportunities to get out and explore at some of the stops.
