Our tour guide, Lee, is a major history buff and clearly knows the ins and outs of Austin. Lee quickly captivated and motivated the group with... More

Since I was on a short business trip in Austin I wanted to have a quick tour around the city and since I am an enthusiastic running, there is no better way to see the city and combine this with a running tour! And as I was alone, it was just me and Lee, but this was perfect. Lee showed... More

My friend and I went on a 5 mile private run tour through Downtown Austin with Lee on the first day of our five day visit to Austin. It is hands down the best way to get to know the city. Lee was fun, knowledgable and took the time to point out all the culture, history, and food that Austin... More

I did a tour with City Running Tours of Austin in November, 2016. The tour was excellent; gave me a great overview of the city and highlighted areas I said I was interested in. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this tour company to anyone visiting Austin.

We came in from out of town for a Bachelorette party and since this was our first time in Austin, we wanted to see the city. This running tour was perfect. Lee tailors to the group and you set the pace. Lee is EXTREMELY knowledgeable of the city, takes you everywhere, and has historical and entertaining stories the whole way.... More

Austin is such a wonderful city and being able to tour it with an expert and get a workout in...even better! We had FUN on this run. It was everything we hoped for and more. Leisurely enough that it wasn't a daunting feat after a long night of exploring the nightlife of the city, but fast paced enough to get... More

Great Run. Lee adjusted to our slow pace right away and was full of interesting facts and places to take us. He is also an excellent photographer and we got pictures of our group from various places along the way within hours of the tour. Bring your phones and your smiles! Also, since the other group that had signed up... More

I recently moved to Austin from San Francisco (spare me the comments on that one....) But I know from living in SF that the #1 most ultimate BEST way to get to know a City intimately is on foot. A friend of mine recommended I take a running tour with Lee and City Running Tours Austin. And that is exactly... More

I decided to do a City Running Tour, and being an Austinite for 25+ years, my guide, Lee, not only made it fun, but extremely informative. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants an entertaining and unique experience of Austin!
