Our tour guide was the best, lots of energy and enthusiasm for her job and did it well. She even played a song on her guitar per our request for us upon return which was excellent. I... More

I rented an e-bike for 5 days for the SXSW. They were really nice and gave me a bike that was better than the one I rented. Two days in, the bike broke its pedal shaft. I called them and they brought another one, even better! The only thing though, is that they assumed that the charger was the same... More

Donna Lou was our tour guide and she was great. Very enthusiastic and she definitely loves her job. The bike route was perfect. I had never been on an electric bike before and I loved it. Nice to have as an option to catch up the group or for some assistance on the hills. Would have like to also tried... More

Our guide Donna Louise was perfect! She ensured we had everything we needed, personalised the tour to us, and was all round good fun. I hadn't been on a bike for over 10 years and she allowed me practice until I was confident enough to get going. Not only was she a very knowledgable guide, she was also a fabulous... More

I showed up early but the weather seem like it was going to rain and nobody else showed up but my guide and I. She was excellent and took me to all the spots I needed to visit and more. I I highly recommend taking an electric bike tour of the city.

It's been a while since I went to Austin but my memory of the electric bike tours stands out as one of the most fun activities my husband and I did there. The guide, Faith, was fantastic - such a warm, fun and kind person! The bikes were easy to ride (never having ridden an electric bike before). We loved... More

We compared and contrasted bicycle tour offerings in Austin, Texas and decided to go with Rocket Electrics since they offer tours with electric bikes (important for hill country) to different restaurants (important for us as foodies). We arrived on time and parked in a nearby parking garage for free. We casually chatted with the staff prior to the tour. Even... More

Our group of high school musicians participated in a Private Music Tour. Our guides, John, Donna, and Wendy, were perfect! The Rocket bikes are so fun. I can guarantee that you can not ride one of these things without a smile on your face. Our guides created a wonderful 3-hour tour that took us all over Austin showing us some... More

So much fun. You get the hang of the bike immediately. Our guide was Faith and she was super laid back, chill lady that asked our small group of 4 people if there was anything special that anyone wanted to see. We let her decide and road all over town past the park, riverfront and downtown.. went into some sketchy... More
