“What a fantastic time we had with Texpert Tours!!!!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

Howie Richey was great - very knowledgable, attentive to our wishes and needs, and extremely informative. He is pretty funny also. Easy to customize our tour with him at the outset - he had great suggestions and hints - and he has the flexability to change on the fly as our interests piqued or waned. There is nothing like a private guided tour!

“Austin/terrific historical tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Howie was very personable, knew the history of so many sites and off beat locations, he made it very interesting. I asked all sorts of questions, and he had insightful answers that showed a breadth of knowledge. He has a good sense of humor, and delights in Austin, his favorite town. I recommend his tours highly.

I appreciate your kind words. Like every tour with the Texpert, yours was tailored to your specific interests, time frame, and needs. I'm glad to have personally introduced you to the places, attitudes, and personalities that make Austin special. Don't be a stranger!

Howie is a fount of knowledge! This was one of the most informative tours ever. The wineries we visited had superb wine and the food at Duchman Family Winery was beyond reproach. I've lived in Austin for over 12 years and still learned a lot! I recommend Texpert Tours to anyone who wants to have fun and learn!
