Set up a run for 8:00 and at 7:40, they cancelled due to a guide on another tour being sick. Set up a run later at 10:00. Never showed. Claimed the guide was late and sent to the wrong place. They "guaranteed" an on time pick up next day at 10:30. Never showed again.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fascinating, intimate, and fulfilling activity in Austin. If you are visiting Austin, I am not sure there's a better way to see and learn about Austin. Austinites (Such as myself), will... More

Jonathan was very knowledgeable and made a run through downtown fun, interesting and absolutely painless! Great way to get a... More

Lee was awesome and so was the run. He ran slow enough so I could hear what he was saying but kept a pace that pushed me. It was so fun to go with my field hockey team and was a great way to bond with the team too!!

Lee went at a really good pace so I was able to listen to what he was saying and be able to run too! The talking really distracted me from the distance and it was awesome getting to see the trail in a new way!! I really recommend it!

My field hockey team went on a running tour with Lee, and his pace was great for everyone and we also learned a lot about the city! A great way to see/learn more about Austin, and get in a good workout at the same time. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Austin or even anyone who lives here and wants... More
