With your entertaining, professional local guide you’ll enjoy the top visitor experiences and attractions without long wait times or lines. Your Austin tour starts with your guide greeting you at your downtown Austin accommodation. You’ll set off in the comfort and style of a Mercedes Metris Van.

You’ll begin your evening tour at dusk on Austin's Lady Bird Lake with a cruise where you will enjoy the sun setting along the spectacular skyline.

If you take this tour between March and October, it’s the best time to witness Austin's world-famous Congress Avenue Bridge Bats! The Mexican (or Brazilian) Free-Tailed Bats take flight from beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge where a colony of 1.5 million bats reside, one of the biggest colonies of urban bats in the world! With speeds of 60 miles per hour, flying across the colorful evening sky, you will be delighted and amazed at the sight of these bats with their erratic flight patterns.

Following the cruise, you’ll enjoy a narrated driving tour with stops at several iconic landmarks. Throughout the drive, your guide will narrate and provide ongoing highlights and local insights about the surrounding area.

You will get to stop at several places including the vibrant South Congress Street, Pfluger Bridge a bicycle and pedestrian bridge spanning Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin, viewing beautiful historic homes at the Rainey Street and Bremond Historic Districts, and pass by the iconic ‘Welcome to Austin Mural’ beautifully illuminated at night.
