“A Fun Saturday Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

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 this review, I would say I had no complaints with the tour, if we have family come back to Austin, we will probably take them on the Cosmic Cowboy.

“Great Start to a Great Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2011

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. Thanks for a great tour!

“Awesome tour of Austin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2011

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 you Greg!!!

“Good time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2011

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.

“A REAL Austin Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2011

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 have made Austin their home. Then we stopped at a local restaurant and were treated to some yummy food that was brought on board for us to enjoy. We cruised around listening to live music right there on the duck. An Austin musician serenaded us while we enjoyed our dinner and sipped adult beverages from local distilleries and breweries. then we hit the lake. That was the most fun! The whole group counted down and we "splashed in" all the while continuing to enjoy our cocktails. We floated around on beautiful lake Austin, took in the sunset, and enjoyed the entertainment provided on board. After the sunset, the boat turned back into a bus and took us to a really hip little bar that I wouldn't have known about otherwise. It's so nice to have the Austin Cosmic Cowboy Tour show us a slice of the REAL Austin...not the chains but the real local stuff-the good stuff. I feel like we got to see a part of Austin that most folks don't get to see unless they live in Austin and know about it. What a treat! Super laid back and loads of fun! The is a MUST if you are planning a meeting in Austin and have a group to entertain. Skip the same old same old and do something uniquely Austin. Austin Cosmic Cowboy Tour is AWESOME! Thanks to the staff for making our visit so memorable! FUN! FUN! FUN! And we got to enjoy music from a real Austin musician up close and personal. Too cool!
