Awesome guide, awesome tour!
Chris was a great guide for our tour. He was knowledgeable and personable. We saw cool sights that we would not have experienced on our own and we learned a lot about Austin. Stopped at Nuha’s dessert truck for delicious fresh baked cookies along the tour. Chris had great recommendations for restaurants and other things to do in this cool city.

Getting acquainted with Austin
Oct 2021 • Couples
Ike was a great guide who imparted lots of information along with some interesting stories. He also asked each of us in the group if there was anything special that he would like to see. Ike said that if possible he would accommodate the request, and he did. We had some great photo ops and a special treat, as well. All in all, this was a great way to get acquainted with the city!

“Keep Austin Weird” w/ Trace
I enjoyed the tour from Austin Detours! There were 10 of us who experienced a nice drive through several different areas in Austin, including a walk into the Texas State Capitol building and a stop at a Gelato food truck! Our guide, Trace, was very personable, friendly, and knowledgeable about the city. He intertwined historical facts with current-day news and jokes to keep us laughing and entertained. (Trace is also a standup comedian.) If you’re visiting Austin and have two hours to spare for a quick tour, this is the one. You’ll get to learn of Austin’s history, sight-see different parts of the city and receive great restaurant and bar recommendations from Trace.

Great way to see Austin
Oct 2021
My husband and I visited Austin for our anniversary. We chose this tour at the last minute so that we could learn some things about the city. Jax was our guide, and we had such a great time! She was very fun and knowledgeable. She showed us some very interesting spots with a lot of history facts. This is the way to go to see a lot in a short amount of time.

Amazing Ike
Sep 2021
I traveled to Austin with little knowledge of places to see, eat, etc. I decided to take a tour to help me out. WOW, you need to look no further than this one and at an incredible price. I would recommend this tour a thousand times over. Ike was my tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable of history, good music, food, and places to see. I told him my plans for the couple days and he went above and beyond and went out of his way to show me places I wanted to check out. The capitol building was incredible, and showed me The White Horse (amazing honked tonk bar) and Terry Blacks BBQ for amazing food. If you ever head to Austin, this is the only tour group you need to use, Ike is incredible, cheers!
