This is my second time here in Austin . This tour was great for me because it gave me a real insight into the layout of Austin, and some cool places to go. The guys at the bike shop were really cool, and Mark is a great guide .

We took our two foreign exchange daughters on this tour. We all had a blast. Seeing Austin by bike was such a unique way to see and learn about the city of Austin. It was definitely one of their highlights of their year in Texas. I highly recommend this tour to locals and visitors alike.

One of the best tours I have ever taken! Our guide was awesome, and even in 90 degree weather it was a very pleasant ride.

Our guide Mack was absolutely fabulous! A true native/local and has a love for Austin and her history. Funny, smart and easy going. Took us everywhere and was quite patient with those of us who had a slower pace than others. HIGHKY RECOMMEND. Great way to City and learn all about Austin.

Two of us took the Austin in a Nutshell Bike Tour on Apr-14-18 and LOVED it. Our guide Cody Rodgers was awesome super friendly, and knowledgeable. We thought the tour was a great way to see the city and especially get an appreciation for the fact Austin and it's climate, really lends itself to an outdoor and active lifestyle. Being on this tour, I felt as though I was a local enjoying a beautiful Saturday morning.

The tour winds its way through a portion of Barton Springs and Zilker Park then rolls along the river, over to downtown and up to the State Capital Building. Cody had stops planned along the way for photo ops and a bit of history/city information -- we really enjoyed these stops and felt we learned quite a bit we would otherwise have missed.

Our favorite parts of this tour: Meeting Cody and Shortythe resident dog at Barton Creek Bike Rental, the stop at the Bat Bridge, riding along the boardwalk, the Ai Wei Wei sculpture, the capital building and the outdoor graffiti park. Please note that it's our understanding the Ai Wei Wei sculpture is a temporary installation and the graffiti park is on private property slated for development -- get there before you miss these great sites!

Super accommodating and enjoyed the ride! Unfortunately, due to extremely cold weather everyone in our group asked to cut the tour short. Too bad for us, because the tour and is beautiful and interesting! Everyone at this bike shop was very nice and helpful and wanted their customers to have a great time. Cheers to the team! I would definitely recommend them.

Everyone working at the bike and your shop was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our group thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the beautiful Austin weather and scenery. The hotel pickup and drop off was a great plus as well! The tour was about 9 miles and not too difficult.
