If you have one day in which you would like to explore Austin, Austin Bike is a terrific way to do so. Our guide, Yoni (rhymes with Tony) was fantastic. His pace was great, the commentary helpful, and the tour gave a good overview of the entire downtown area and city. Even if you do not have a reservation, as... More

We made a reservation for a guided tour, that included the cost of renting the bikes. We met the owner and our guide Lisa at their parking spot downtown. The tour went around a lot of downtown and the river. Lisa was very knowledgeable about Austin. She recommended things to do, places to see and eat. She also shared lots... More

I called a few days ahead to book a tour and rentals. The guide didn't show up, I called and he came with the wrong bikes and hadn't scheduled a tour. After 45 minutes, he brought better bikes (still pretty ratty) and gave us a map with lots of good advice and only charged for one bike. So, no tour,... More

Bikes are the way to explore Austin! We rented bikes from Austin Bike Tours & Rentals while here on vacation. It was an absolutely great experience. We planned to keep the bikes one day, and we ended up keeping them three. It was a blast and Keith was very accommodating. He was professional, friendly, and prompt. Bikes were dropped off... More

Satisfied Customer! Without a doubt touring a new city by bike is the most comprehensive way to get a feel for the town and ABT&R did not disappoint. Arranging for our tour was simple, easy, and efficient. As it turned out my friend and I were the only two clients that day so we really were able to customize our... More

I was in charge of finding a place to rent bikes in ATX. Luckily I was able to find this and get in touch with Keith. Even though we were dealing with strained lines of communication ( no cell phone signal ) we were able to rent four bikes from this vendor outside of their normal operating area. Although we... More

I landed from Australia and rented a bike from Keith over the internet on the day I arrived in Austin. He answered my email within ten minutes and brought the bikes to my door with helmet, map, locks and lights within the hour. When my bike was stolen by a dude with some bolt cutters, he was back at the... More

After reading reviews, I was excited to book a bike tour while we were in Austin. I used the contact section of their website to request a tour a week before our trip. I didn't ever receive a reply. I understand that sometimes emails fall through the cracks so I contacted Austin Bike Tours again and yet again...no one ever... More

Sorry we missed your call. We try to return everyone's inquiries as quickly as possible. Our tours were booked full that weekend and we must have not gotten back with you to let you know. Please try again next time your're in town. More

We were closed for the month of January and our online reservation system accidentally took this reservation. A refund was given as soon as we returned to the office and noticed the error. We apologize profusely for the confusion. More

Last summer my wife, 12 year old daughter and I had the great pleasure of spending an evening riding bikes around Austin with Travis. The three hour trip turned into four, with Travis going out of his way to personalize the trip for us. We saw bats, parks, cool buildings...heard quirky stories...took a night-time swim in Barton Springs. Travis should... More
