Great price. AWESOME customer service!! The lady (can't remember her name-she had purple hair) gave us a map, told us all the places we should go, and was SO friendly and helpful!! 5 minutes into the ride, my boyfriend ran over a nail and got a flat tire. We called them and they brought him another bike and took the... More

We've been to Austin a dozen times, and this tour certainly takes you off the beaten path. You really get a "behind the scenes" look at Austin...not just the typical tourist attractions.

Alicia was our tour guide and was a very entertaining host. The tour spanned a good four hours but it did not feel like it, and we saw four restaurants with delicious food at each stop. The bikes were easyto operate, fun and very intuitive. If you want to see Austin, get the inside scoop on places to eat and... More

I could not believe how much I enjoyed biking the Austin boardwalk on electric bikes. It was 98 degrees out and we never broke a sweat! I felt just like a kid riding my bike, too much fun and we will do it again. Also the staff were so friendly and one lady was giving a tour to another group,... More

I cannot possibly understand why any visitor to Austin would not take the opportunity take Rocket Electrics 4 hour food tour. The knowledge concerning where to eat as well as the information provided about Austin as a city was outstanding. The food we ate was ridiculously amazing. I am back in England physically craving some 24 hour smoked brisket or... More

Our review is for 2 hires one for an overnight rental, the other for the food tour. We hired 2 bikes for overnight rental to be delivered to our hotel, they were a bit late, but with a quick phone call all was sorted and we were on our way, no problem. Coming from Australia we found this part a... More

We had such a great time!!! We finally had a little time off and haven't been out enjoying the city for some time. We decided to explore the new boardwalk and have lunch on South Congress so Rocket Electric Bikes seemed like a good idea. Joanna was amazing, so friendly and informative. She's positively effervescent. The bikes are so easy... More

I can't say enough about Rocket Electrics and how much fun we had on the food tour. We're frequent visitors to Austin, but our guide took us to some places we would never have found on our own (or thought to look!). The bikes were SUPER fun and easy to ride. My bike had a flat tire at one point,... More
