My husband and I toured with Johnny around Austin and found some great food, learned some interesting historical fun facts, and had an amazing time!! Highly recommend Rocket Electric Foodie Tour to anyone looking for a great time, tasty eats and treats, and a non-stressful sport outing. Fun, fun, fun....well worth every cent. Great time!!

“Great Way to See Austin and Some Great Food Too”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We had a blast on the Rocket Electrics Food Tour. We are avid bikers so weren't quite sure at first what to make of the electric bikes but they are super-fun. Going up hills was a breeze even after several great bites along the way. John and Johnny were great tour guides and made for a great way to see some unique areas of Austin. We will definitely do it again next trip.

“Rocket Electric Bikes ROCK!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

It would not be an exaggeration to say that Rocket Electrics MADE our trip to Austin. The electric bikes made everything accessible to us -- no hassle parking, pausing to watch bats on the bridge(can't do that in a car!), the viney off-road paths around the lake, etc. We rode those bad boys all day and in the evening too. You can peddle when you want, but if it's hot, or hilly, or you're a little worn out from all of the fun, you have an electric boost right there. The owners were amazing. They spent over an hour with us pointing out fantastic places to eat(that we never would have found ourselves), discussing great bands and giving us the inside scoop on what to see and do. They were spot on. We will be back, and we will rent electric bikes again. One more thing -- there were so flexible and easy to work with, re: keeping the bikes longer (i.e until the last minute!), and picking them up for us. Excellent, can't say enough good things!

My husband and I had so much fun pedaling around on a tandem bike with a battery-booster to help you up hills! A great way to experience the capital of Texas.

“Do this Austin Rocket Electrics Bike Food tour your first day in town!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Jon customized this electric bike tour to our groups food likes! He knows Austin intimately, and showed up places that had amazingly great food and that we would have missed on our own. The electric bikes are VERY easy and fun to ride, even to this writer who can be a little skittish. Having the power to go uphill when we needed it was a joy. Jon kept us off the busy roads and took us through all kinds of shortcuts through beautiful parks and wonderful trails. Afterward, he gave us recommondations for live music to listen to for the rest of our stay that were amazing.
