From your transportation, see about 40 landmarks including the Texas State Capitol, Moonlight Tower, University of Texas, Mayfield Park and Driskill Hotel, which is rumored to be haunted.

Cruise past Lady Bird Lake, and then head down Congress Avenue to East Austin, where you can see the Texas State Cemetery and French Legation State Historic Site, once home to the French government and the oldest structure in Austin. Check out vibrant 6th Street, the heart of Austin’s live music scene.

Finally, travel into the picturesque Texas Hill County, a region known for its wine and elegant mansions. Your tour ends with return to your original departure point in central Austin.
