Overview
In Texas, even our convertibles are bigger: Find out for yourself with 360-degree views of Austin in a unique, convertible-top Mercedes-Benz sprinter. Take in major sights, including time to hop off the van and appreciate beautiful views, iconic murals, and historic sites along the way. Expect stops for some light walking at the Driskill Hotel, the University of Texas campus, and the Pfluger bridge.* This small-group tour (14 passenger max) is the one to do if you want a comprehensive look at what makes this city what it is: from the towering architecture of downtown, the humble yet active expanse of the south side, the quaint and historical east, and the perpetually awe-inspiring capitol and campus. *Subject to change due to events or closures.

Avery did a good job highlighting the city. Tour could have been longer. Loved the custom van. Would take tour again if more options are available.

We were shown all of Austin and taught quite a bit about the Capital of Texas. There's actually a lot of construction going on. It's just there to make more room for more interesting people.

The guide was very nice, good energy. The bus was very nice and clean. It's a a "cliff notes" version of the city that gets your feet wet quickly in 90mins. It sort of leaves you wishing for more depth but for the price I thought it was entertaining.
