A note from Austin Murder Walk
Texas does not require masks to be worn outside and the vast majority of our toru is outside in the great downtown area of Austin! That said, this tour includes a stop into the historic Driskill Hotel and the Driskill does require masks until we are seated for drink service.

Overview
In the year 1885 America’s first serial killer stalked the streets and alleyways of the young, emerging city of Austin. More terrifying than any ghost story, this monster brutally and systematically hacked eight women to death using an ax. For one calendar year, he terrified a city and came to be known as the “midnight assassin”. He was never captured and his identity remains a mystery or does it...? This tour is our longest at 1 hour 45 minutes and covers 2 miles of historic Austin including West 6th street, Guy Town, the Warehouse District and a drink stop at the iconic Driskill Hotel. The pace is leisurely and, in addition to a drink stop at the Driskill, (drinks not included), there are short rests along the journey. Join us on this exceptional true crime walking tour investigating exact crime locations and the various theories surrounding the midnight assassin. It’s a “killer” tour.

I absolutely loved it. The guide was on time in the exact place he said to meet. Even called a few people who where late to see if they were on their way. He was very knowledgeable. The time flew by. I could have used a couple more hours to pick his brain! Definitely going to do
