Lee not only showed me some of the local running spots and great sites but also gave me some tips on running. Lee was great narrating the... More

We got a group together for my birthday to do a Beer Run around Austin. This was such a fun activity and we had a great time with this group!

My colleagues and I did a custom tour when we were in town for a conference and had such a great time with our tour guide, Lee. I've been recommending City Running Tours to other travelers and plan to do more tours when I travel to other cities.

A fun, educational, casual run that introduces you to downtown Austin. Lee was energetic and kept everyone amused. Oh, and the beer was good!

Even living in Austin for the past year, I really enjoyed this. I learnt a few things about the city that I now live in, got to share that with people who were seeing it the first time, and of course got to have a few tasty beers along the way

This was our first running tour anywhere and it was a blast. Lee was a great guide and we saw a lot of the city we never would have seen or known about! The pace says 10 min/mile but you stop a good amount to take pics and the pace is much slower so anyone really can do it! You... More

I visited Austin mid February 2015 for running the marathon. I enjoyed very much the kindness and good sprits of the staff, and, of course... The great beer! Plan to repeat the experience every time! Ulrich

Get rid of Austin saturday downtown traffic visiting it running the streets. Enjoy delicious tastes of beers while you are knowing historic places and monuments. Warm you legs, sweat your tee, cool your throat and give joy to your heart before going to rest.

Really great experience. Wanted to work a few kinks out prior to the race on Sunday. Pace was slower than expected but it worked out well. Got to try out some cool bars in Austin we hadn't been to before. Lee did a great job with the fun facts to make it interesting and educational. Staff was great and the... More
