Got to see lots of Austin Landmarks all while getting a nice run in. As an avid runner and Austin local I still found it fun to run with a group.... More

My husband and I always feel like the best way to get to know a city is to run through it. Our experience in Austin was even better with Lee as our guide. He was smart, funny and honest. We learned so much about the city that we didn't know since it was our first day there. My husband was... More

I convinced my non-runner husband to do the historic tour and we both enjoyed the experience. Rather than spend hours covering ground in the city walking, the running tour offers a way to see a lot of sights in a short amount of time. Lee was a great guide and since we had a small group, tailored some of his... More

Today I had the pleasure of doing a 2 hour tour with Lee as my guide. I went from feeling very ambivalent about Austin, to truly appreciating this city's beauty and history. Lee is friendly and knowledgeable and just a great guy, with tons of running experience. I am old enough to be his mother (and then some), but I... More

I had an awesome time listening to Lee talk about Austin as we ran a 5k. His ability to recall details about the many sights we passed by, was quite impressive. We, my brother and sister-in-law and myself, were appreciative of the fact that Lee was willing to accommodate our schedule. I would do this again and recommend this to... More

From finding out where the locals go to get authentic texmex to learning about the hauntings of the Driscoll, Lee's knowledge of Austin was incredibly insightful & was conveyed in a fun filled manner. I never thought I could get a true grasp of a city so fast. Not only was the tour a really awesome way to explore the... More

Had an awesome time running with our tour guide Lee! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the city and there's no better way to learn about a new place than with some awesome exercise and finishing off with a nice cold beer is the finishing touch I can't recommend it enough!

I was in Austin for the weekend and needed to get some training miles in. Running alone in a new city in the past has been disastrous for me specially on long runs. 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

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.
