Jacob was the best tour guide! Very personable and knowledgeable. I learned so much about Austin that I didn’t know in the 20 years I’ve lived here. He gave great tips/ideas along the way for other things to do and see around the area. The tour itself encompassed everything we had wanted to see, and more!

The host (Young gentleman at the desk) and guide “Chip” were kind, caring and patient. The host made sure my bike comfortable, provided helmet, water and sunscreen. The guide waited for one of tour participants, who was slightly late. He was making sure I am as a slow rider not left behind. Chip told a lot about major Austin attractions, history and buildings on skyline.
