Austin is a big city that lives loudly. There’s so much to see – and now you can experience it in a completely unique, original way. These handpicked tours and experiences show you the Texan capital in a new, dynamic light, taking a different route from the norm.
This is the city where beer, coffee and barbecues are a gold-standard combo, and where they produce great wine and exceptional olive oil. These tours take you to the heart of these experiences, whether you’re up to a bit of boogying down, or you’re trying to get in your steps while on vacay. Check out these surprising ways to see Austin.
Following pickup from your hotel/accommodation (downtown only) or the Austin Visitors’ Center, sit back and enjoy the breeze in an open-air electric shuttle for this barbecue and beer tour!
Come see all that Austin has to offer! Our leisurely 10-mile Austin in a Nutshell Tour is the best way to see all of the notable landmarks in and around downtown, as well as the famous Lady Bird Lake Trail!
This tour is a short drive outside of Austin, Texas. Get an insider’s view of the growing olive oil industry right outside the bustling city. Topics include History of the Orchard, State of Texas Olive Industry, Farming Methods, Harvesting Practices, Milling Process, Extra Virgin Olive Oil 101 and Q&A.
Rest assured this adventure isn’t just about beer. That’s just the cherry on the top. We offer tons of fun, quirky facts and stories on this adult sight-seeing adventure. Located on the east side of Austin’s downtown, our highlights will include: The Capitol of Texas, Texas State Cemetery, and other unique destinations. It is a moderate-level bike ride.

Beers, bikes, helmets, and a knowledgeable guide are included in the price.
Come run with us and explore the landmarks and historical markers that make up the capital city of Texas.
