The historical parts of Austin were of most interest to us! My daughter and her boyfriend both live in Austin and there were parts they had not seen that we visited and learned about on our tour.

Ore tour guide, Joel, was knowledgeable and professional. I moved to NC from Austin in 2006. I was blown away at Austin's growth. Along the way Joel gives excellent recommendations on restaurants and sights. Worth every penny.

Totally enjoyed our tour of Austin and the Hill country. The weather was nice enough we were able to have the top open, morning tour. Joel was very friendly and informative of everything we did. Other passengers were accommodating by not talking so we could hear everything being said. It was a lot of fun. A great way to see Austin and have some idea of places you would want to go back to spend longer a time. I highly recommend this tour.

Really search out safe...

Really search out safe trips during this covid time so was very disappointed my open air trip was a closed bus after 30 minutes. It wasn’t that hot with the breeze. Expressed this to driver. Was nervous and anxious the entire two hours.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know of your concerns. We're very sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We try to do everything we can to keep our guests safe. This is our first year to use our new convertible van, and we're learning how to best accommodate all of our guests during high temps, wind, and rain. We have made the decision to keep it closed when it can becomes too hot when left open for some of our more heat sensitive guests. Once opened the van is very difficult to cool back down when temperatures are high, so it’s best to close before it gets too hot inside. We understand this made you feel uncomfortable from a Covid perspective. We do not make a commitment to keep the van open at all times. We will take corrective action to make sure this is clear in our tour information. We do ask that our guides wear masks and we offer mask to those who don’t have a mask, and ask guest to not join us if they are sick. Additionally, we have taken extra precautions to make sure the van is sanitized between tours to help us provide Covid safe tours. Please contact us directly if you would like to give us any additional feedback. You can reach me at 512.659.9478 or mary@aotoursaustin.com

Good tour.

Tour was great. Our tour guide was knowledgeable. However, there were people in the van who were talking loud during the trip that sometimes we could not understand what our tour guide was saying. There should be a policy for passengers not to do this.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
Hi Leida, Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your experience was. We're sorry to hear you weren't able to hear over the fellow passengers. We will look into having our guides give some "house rules" around being good neighbors. Thank you for your business!

This is one of the best, if not the best, tour we have been on. Guide was fun and informative, van was immacutely clean, and took us to interesting places in Austin we would not have seen ourselves. The weather was nice so the open air part of the trip was wonderful.
