We moved to Austin a year and a half ago and are still learning about our city so when my sister, who uses a walker, and brother-in-law came for a visit, we decided to take the AO tour to show them the city. First of all the young man at the Congress Ave pick-up location was

Joe, Thank you very much for the kind words. We are pleased beyond measure that your group enjoyed the experience Bri put together. Experienced and knowledgable, she is one of our best guides and has actually assisted in creating content and new tours for AO Tours Austin. You're spot on about taking the private route and the customizable nature of that tour. No matter your interest, we are able to go in to further detail for you and your group with our custom tour options and we're happy that you decided to take that course as well. The next time you are back in Texas, be sure to let us know. We'd love to host you again! Warmest regards, WB WILL@AOTOURSAUSTIN.COM

Lorie, Thank you so VERY much for your great review. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience! All of our guides are funny, entertaining, and engaging. We also agree that the best course of action is to do one of our tours VERY FIRST so that guests of Austin can see it all and make plans for the remainder of their trip. We have new tours now available if you, or anyone in your group is interested in exploring Austin in further detail! Thank you again, WB Will@aotoursaustin.com

Mrs. Kenny took me for a walk and it was outstanding! I learned about Jesse James in the cemetary, a woman preservationist, the first Presbyterian church, and the attack on the Library.

Steve, Thanks so much for the GREAT review, however, I think that this is for a different product as we: 1) Do not have a Mrs. Kenny (yet) 2) Do not have a notable Jesse James in our cemetary (that I am aware of) 3) Have not had a library attack (unless you meant by Architecture enthusiast swooning over the Central Public Library https://library.austintexas.gov/central-library) However, the next time you find yourself in Austin, Texas, please reach out to us so we can show you Ausin's beauty, history, and amazing culture on one of our great tours! Warmest regards, WB will@aotoursaustin.com
