Your guide shows your hotels and buildings that are rumored to be haunted and shares their ghostly histories. You'll also stop by landmarks including the The Texas State Capitol Building — an Italian Renaissance Revival-style building with 22 acres (8 hectares) of gardens, Lady Bird Lake, and the165-foot (50 m) high Moonlight Towers, one of the world's only remaining light towers. Stop at the Congress Avenue Bridge to look for residents of North America’s largest urban bat colony: about 2 million Mexican free-tailed bats that migrate every year to the southwestern United States from central Mexico. You'll also pass through the 6th Street Entertainment District and hear about Austin's lively music and arts scene. Have time to stop along the way for great photo ops of the highlights of the Texas capital.

Quite an excellent tour!!
Oct 2021
Fantastic tour! Alex was our tour guide and was excellent in every way! Unfortunately, he said the bats have been flying early and not in great numbers, so we skipped the bat part. But, the tour around town was great! The ghost stories were pretty lighthearted and there weren't too many of them - which made the tour all the more enjoyable for us. Very balanced!

We would do a tour with Alex again in a heartbeat!! My 14 yo son is now totally taken with Segways and wants one of his own. (Keep dreaming, buddy!)

Great easy fun, with history involved.
Super fun tour guide, great at showing us how the Segway worked. Stopped at a lot of cool spots and had fun driving. Only suggestion would be to play some tunes while driving.

It is so much fun
Mar 2021 • Solo
This was the final activity I added to my day. It was so much fun! I got to meet people from other cities. Our tour guide Brian was the best. Austin is such a beautiful scenic city and so cool being in a group zipping around the city. We did see the bats. Its worth the money.
