    Excellent tour! I learned so much about Austin's history even though I'm a born and raised local Austinite. I recommend this for tourists and locals alike as you get a great walking tour of downtown as well as a fascinating look into Austin's dark history.

    I go to haunted tours in each city I visit. This was fun and very informative. We got to go inside many of the historic sites and learned of the connection between Austin and Jack the Ripper.

    I don’t think you will make it on time. He does one tour nightly, he needs you there by 7:45. Traffic in Austin is not good on a normal day, it will be even worse around a holiday.

    Jo's Coffee Shop near 2nd and Colorado. There's a sign for the meeting point out in front.
