Many tours depart from here. Comfortable walking distance to 6th street and much of downtown. Twenty minutes walk to capital and parking in same building.

Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We stopped to get some Austin gifts. 30 minute parking in the garage was $4.00 and gift shop was very reasonable. You can also book many tours from this location. Great place to begin your time in Austin.
