This tour is fun, informative, and efficient. You can do the whole thing in 90 minutes, or opt for the hop-on, hop-off experience. You could see the sites on your own, as I did before the tour. But the tour adds plenty of local history,...More

Hands down the best bus tour I've ever been on. The guide was very entertaining and knew so much about the history of Austin and gave some great tips about dining and shopping. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to explore this great city!

We really enjoyed this tour, great information, caring staff, and wonderful sights. We went in on a Tuesday and there was plenty of room. Guide was great at giving out restaurant recommendations. Would do again, if back in Austin.

Yes, There are several buses which all do the same route. You can get off and on at any of the stops. The main stop is at the visitor center. The whole ride is about 1.5 hrs if I remember correctly.

Our son recently moved to Austin. We have never been there. We (husband, myself, daughter in her late 20s) have rented a condo on E. 4th Street for our visit. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with Capital City Comedy? My son said one of his friends said that was great. I also thought Esther's Follies looks like fun.

Esther's Follies is always fun and will give you some Austin and Texas specific humor. The magician is good too . The shows sell out so reserve your tickets as soon as you decide what night you want to attend, The Double Decker bus tour does a great job and they even offer blankets if its chilly. You can always sit downstairs, of course! Either take the 2 hour round trip from the visitor center or hop off and on at one of their stops. You may want to try to catch the Gone with the Wind...More
