Laura was extremely informative and a pleasure to learn from while providing little know details peppered throughout an extensive historical walk down Austin’s live music lanes. Casual pleasant pace accommodating to all. Interesting to hear about key contributions who have kept and are keeping Austin’s music scenes accessible to all. Highly recommended if you love live music, especially endearing if you like local history.

Laura is super knowledgeable about the rich history of Austin and beyond. As a musician herself she clearly is passionate about her city and can give you recommendations depending on your art and music interests. Their tours are also tailored depending what you want to see, history, art, music etc. Recommended to everyone visiting Austin!

Spent the afternoon with Hannah and she really knew everything about Art and Austin, I learned so much! I had no idea the area existed and the mural and atmosphere is incredible. This is a tour you would pay $30-$50 for in other cities so make sure you compensate your guide. I love that it ended over by the food scene with the title trucks and restaurants and I stayed a while just enjoying the weather, people and music. Highly recommended.

Great way to get a taste of the expressions and vibes of the local artist on the East Side Art Tour. Our tour guide, Laura was knowledgeable and answered our questions!
