We did a 90 minute tour with "Austin Overtures." Dow was our fabulous tour guide and he is a 4th generation Texan! He showed us about 50 points of interest around town! You ride 30 miles into Hill Country where you see many gorgeous vistas

I have been living in Austin for almost 4 years, a transplant from NJ. We have lots of visitors and this is the second time I have taken out-of-towners on this tour in less than 2 months. Sans having a private tour, this is the most comprehensive overview of Austin that I have seen in just 90 minutes. Our first tour guide was Rocky -- he was pleasant, thorough, and a safe driver. On the second trip we had Maggie, a TX history fanatic with an incredible knowledge of Austin. I will request her for all of my future tours (she currently works Thursday and Fridays).

This is, by far, the best bang for your buck if you only have a short time to see Austin and need a good overview of the city and its surrounds.

PS - check out the Visitor's Center -- lots of helpful information about Austin!!!

I recently had out of town guests and because they would only be in town for one day I wanted to show them some of the highlights of Austin. My daughter suggested Austin Overtures. Even though I have lived in Austin for 35 years I learned a lot. Our tour guide Chris was great. I recommend it!

It was really a wonderful addition to my understanding of austin, today, this tour of Austin.

(Actor) Chris Gibson (b. in Pittsburgh, raised in Florida and Austinite for less than 3 years) gave us a real treat with humor, concision and enthusiasm. I took a lot of useful pictures from the front seat that can fill my notebook, also filled with the main explanations. The rest of the day, with relatives, we discussed in more details some of the information.

Thanks a lot and give our best regards to Chris.

Thank you Austin Overtures for taking our group on the Austin Hills and Historic Tour. Our two tour guides were absolutely great, and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. I will be recommending your company to any groups that are headed to Austin as well as individuals and smaller groups of leisure travelers.
