It was a great experience seeing the city of Austin. It was enjoyable and relaxing. Seeing the Spring, the parks, the Capitol building, the city streets, the landmark buildings and appreciating the history that goes with it. All while on a Sunday afternoon bike ride. Sounds good to me.

Very nice tour, guide had many interesting things to share about Austin history and culture. I’m not sure we actually biked 10miles which was fine with me as it was a very hot day.

Our guide, Tanner, was awesome! It rained off and on, but we still had a blast exploring Austin. We took his advice and came back to the Congress Bridge at sunset to see the bats!

The trip gave us a great sense of what Austin is like and it’s character and best features. The length of the trip was just right.

Small group which was great! Informative and fun. Learned a lot about Austin.
