This tour hosted our VT Elks Association President's Dinner (July 2013) and we had a great time! Wonderful on-board musicians! Good food from a local (not chain!) restaurant - if you have people who are sensitive to spicy food I'd tell Greg ahead of time....More

The Austin Cosmic Cowboy Tour is a big slice of what makes Austin so groovy. Our group climbed aboard a "Duck" which is an amphibious vehicle that turns from a sight seeing bus into sightseeing boat. We cruised through downtown and got a brief low-down...More

You haven't truly experienced Austin until you've seen it through the eyes of the duck on the Cosmic Cowboy tour. It's awesome! You're chauffeured through the open air while taking in the sights of Austin, with a guitar player on board, a Fireman's 4 (one...More

The Cosmic Cowboy Tour is the perfect way to see and experience the true spirit of Austin without having to lift a finger. The tour takes place on a duck boat, but is anything but cheesy and touristy. The fun filled evening includes local Austin...More
