“Best time ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Everyone should get to Austin as soon as possible and take a Rocket Electrics tour! This is the best way to see miles of Austin and eat some delicious food (we had BBQ, burgers, Asian fusion, and the best gelato I've had outside Italy). We flew around downtown areas and lake-side tree-lined paths on the electric bikes and they are so much fun! John and Nicole are the most knowledgeable and accommodating guides you could wish for. I just wish my hometown had this kind of business because I'd be going all the time!

“Awesome Food Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

This was an great time!We had a little time to remember how to ride a bike and then able to decide if you wanted to go all electric or pedal at times. We went to 4 locations (BBQ, Sushi, Pizza and Mexican Dessert). The guide was super accomodating and we had an amazing time riding around Austin.

“Terrific Birthday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Celebrated my birthday on April 5th by renting bikes from Rocket for 5 of us. John and Nicole couldn't be nicer. Nicole even had a dozen yummy cupcakes ready for me as a birthday treat. This is the third time I've had a great time seeing Austin with Rocket Electrics. This truly is the best way to see the city. So, if you are local and just want to treat yourself for the day or show Austin off to your out of town friends.....THIS is the way! Will be back.

“You ROCKet Electrics!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

This is by far the best way to experience Austin! What a blast. We went everywhere...Congress, The Driskill, Barton Spring Pool, Rainey St, Univ of Texas, Graffiti Park...and many many more. Fun!Fun!Fun! A day of literally seeing all of Austin's little known secrets, without the hassle of parking.

“Wonderful experience , you should have to do it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Very friendly welcome and instructions about the e-bike.
Received a map and locations which were interesting.
I was also told where to drive , special roads etc.
If you like to ride a bike you should have this experience.
I believe e-bikes are increasing in the future , so easy to move.
I couldn't drive all day , I was even charged half.
