We did the Lady Bird Lake tour this morning and had a great time with our guide Donna. She was so friendly and knowledgeable. The electric motors were key for any small up hills. The customer service was super friendly. We will be returning soon to try a different tour offering. I can't recommend this enough!!!

Rocket Electrics Tours service surpasses all my expectations. We had a few hiccups with a battery going dead during our ride. Not only did they bring out a new battery they made sure my son and I had the full hour we paid for. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Firstly, we enjoyed our tour and our guide Faith did a great job. However, we we really disappointed with the customer service of this company. My parents had bought me gift vouchers for a Foodie Tour as a birthday present in late December 2016. When I tried to redeem the vouchers (which had been paid in full for the Foodie... More

Please accept our sincerest apologies for dropping the ball so badly on your trip. We recently had some management changes on top of being thin staffed during our winter/ slow season that negatively effected customer service the week you were here. None of this is your concern or fault, of course, and we are very sorry we didn't take care... More

We were very happy to take an electric bike tour - a lot of fun - and our guide was very nice, informed, and friendly. Overall, it was a nice tour but thought it was a lot of money. First, the web site did say tours starting at $58, but once you add the extra weekend premium AND tax (which... More
