Mike did a great job of explaining the bike ride before we started and giving a history of the city and scenic sites along with a great explination of the bats.

This is an ideal tour! It’s active at a mellow pace, gives you a great sense of the city’s layout, and shows a local perspective that’s hard to get otherwise. Mark is a fantastic guide. Funny and knowledgeable. Perfect way to learn about Austin and

Amazing tour and Mike was a great tour guide. The bats came as advertised though a little tough to see at times. Good way to get to know Austin.
