First time to beautiful Austin. Joined up with a walking tour last week with Laura as our guide. It was a music tour. Such fun historical stories that were tied to the past and present. She even sang (gorgeous voice). Highly recommend taking an hour and a half out of your day

I went on the early morning downtown tour with Laura. It just so happened that I was the only one that showed up that day (considering inclement weather) and so I got my own personal tour. Laura was so much fun, and was so full of information. She answered all the questions I
