This tour hosted our VT Elks Association President's Dinner (July 2013) and we had a great time! Wonderful on-board musicians! Good food from a local (not chain!) restaurant - if you have people who are sensitive to spicy food I'd tell Greg ahead of time. Communication ahead of time was a bit of a challenge but it all came together... More

For an end-of 2012 Christmas Week event for my TN, DC, MA, and CHI out-of-town guests (10), I have tried booking this tour (early November 2012), and have heard NOTHING from them in return ~ I called and left messages for them 2x and I emailed them 2x. Absolutely no response whatsoever! I would gladly have included my group with... More

We really enjoyed our trip on the Cosmic Cowboy tour. I usually don't like these tours, but my wife said this one would be different. From the start the staff was interested in making sure everyone had a good time. The tour guide was also a long-time resident of Austin and answered any questions that came to mind. When reading...

I would recommend doing to Cosmic Cowboy tour early in your visit to Austin. Greg was very helpful in recommending other not-so-touristy places for us to check out...and great local food joints! We got a great feel for the heart and soul of Austin on this tour...the musical entertainment was amazing and Gregs personality fit really well with our group.... More

We chartered the bus for our group which included children 8-20 and adults. We thoroughly enjoyed the great music, food, and stories and the drinks. Greg and Shelly King were fantastic hosts. I highly recommend this experience. I think it could get a little rowdie for kids if not on a chartered tour, but it worked great for us. Thank... More

This was a great evening event. Conference I attended booked this as evening entertainment and it was spot on. Greg was funny, food provided was damn good, and the drinks kept flowing. This is a fun time for experiencing Austin at night without having to worry about parking or where the next cocktail is going to come from.

The Austin Cosmic Cowboy Tour is a big slice of what makes Austin so groovy. Our group climbed aboard a "Duck" which is an amphibious vehicle that turns from a sight seeing bus into sightseeing boat. We cruised through downtown and got a brief low-down on the historic sights with and emphasis on the music and the famous musicians who... More

You haven't truly experienced Austin until you've seen it through the eyes of the duck on the Cosmic Cowboy tour. It's awesome! You're chauffeured through the open air while taking in the sights of Austin, with a guitar player on board, a Fireman's 4 (one of the best beers in Texas) in hand, a delicious dinner, and then watching the...

I took the Cosmic Cowboy Tour and was blown away by the ease with which the tour went. It was fun, relaxing, had great food, drinks and music and was a great way to see the city, by land and by lake. The owner, Greg Strake was there to greet us and take care of our every need. I would... More

The Cosmic Cowboy Tour is the perfect way to see and experience the true spirit of Austin without having to lift a finger. The tour takes place on a duck boat, but is anything but cheesy and touristy. The fun filled evening includes local Austin made beer and cocktails to drink on the boat, live music from an Austin musician,... More
