Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had a fun time checking out the sights around the lake trails. A quicker way to get around but the trails in Austin are vey bicycle friendly and I would pedal next time. Be sure to ask about trail closings. If you don't know the area, it can be confusing.

“Best two days in Austin”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

I can't imagine a better way to experience Austin! Electric biking is so easy and so much fun (and can be good exercise, too, if you want it to be). John knows and loves Austin and he shared that with us. We took the lake tour and the food truck tour and both were fantastic. We were introduced to places we would never have found on our own. Next time we could venture out unaccompanied but touring with John was so much fun...why would we want to?!

“Fantastic way to see Austin.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Must see tour!!! and don't park in the radio shacks spot. The owner is a towing nazi. But all in all the food was mouth watering and the guides are proficient!

“Awesome way to explore Austin”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We loved renting bikes from Rocket Electric. We're from Portland, a great biking city. We weren't sure about motorized bikes but ended up loving them. Such a fun way to get around town. Total conversation starter. The owners were super helpful, service top notch. Would definitely recommend.

“Fun!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! We went on the food tour and the food we sampled was great. We never would've found these places on our own. The bikes were pretty easy as well. I felt a little nervous going over the bridge but at least there's a barrier between you and the street so you just have to aim. John was easy to talk to. He customized the stops to our tastes and really sold Austin. We would definitely recommend this tour or any tour for the experience of the electric bikes or for a unique tour experience!
