The tour was a great overview of Austin history. We got to see inside a beautiful old hotel, learned that O. Henry was from Austin, heard some great ghost stories and saw downtown closeup. Our guide Daylen (sp?) was well-informed, friendly, and attentive to all.

Best Sisters experience

I had not seen my sister in over 2 years since this pandemic and we wanted to spend 4 memorable days together. No kids no family. I wanted my sister to experience kayaking for the first time and we booked a guided tour with Lone Star Kayaking Tours. Rives was our tour guide. He made the experience memorable. Not only did he walk us through all the safety precautions but while kayaking in Austin, he took the time to point out all the historical sites of the area while getting to know each one of us in the tour. He even gave us a few extra minutes in the water to enjoy the view and took pictures of each of us which he texted to us that same night. Thank you Rives for making the experience my sister and I had precious.

I’m so glad you enjoyed your Kayaking adventure with Rives! He sounds amazing, I definitely need to check this out :-) We definitely hope you enjoyed your ghost tour just as much!
