Really. We took the fun of riding on the open road with friends and turned it into a fun tongue-in-cheek adventure that makes seeing the culture and history of a city the FUNNEST experience possible.
We've been on a variety of city tours and this was by far the best. Patrick guided us to a multitude of Austin icons and knew the history of each location. We greatly enjoyed it!
I had an afternoon to kill in Austin so I searched for “Tours of Austin” and stumbled upon this group. Let me start by saying I’m 71, with zero experience on any similar vehicle other than a bicycle, and was decades older than everyone else in the group. I would have preferred that the short training period was a bit longer, but nonetheless out we went. After a few minutes we all felt comfortable and man, it was fun! As the two hour time frame was nearing it seems like all of us would have happily stayed on for another hour. To be honest, it wasn’t much of a sightseeing tour since the leader isn’t really communicating with us as we ride around, but who cares? This was just pure fun. I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique experience. More
I highly recommend this adventure. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and completely helpful. The ride was fun and exciting and had great music. It was very enjoyable for the whole family we had ages ranging all the way from age 6 all the way up to 57. Will be definitely doing it again. You guys rock
This tour or Austin was super fun! The length was perfect and our leader was amazing and showed us super cool locations and sights! Amazing ride
We had Rooster as a guide and he couldn’t have done better! We ended up as the only people and he readjusted the tour to take us on an overview of the area homes and unique buildings and scenery. Loved every minute!
An awesome way to tour. Be ready for fun! Gang leader “Gator” was a total showman (and his music selection was perfect)! People on the street seemed to like it almost as much as us (they whipped out there phones to get us on video). Plus, we learned a lot at our stops/locations. A smooth ride and a must do!
Guide was awesome, he was always excited and he loved his job, he made sure you had a good time, if weren't having fun he would make the fun..
I'm local, so I'll be back. I took my (70something) mom on a 9 a.m. vaguely-themed YBG tour (they offer some that are focused on specific aspects of Austin -- this one was more the general one) because it was her birthday and we had guests coming in to town and she still hasn't been downtown much. I expected the usual high points, just on a bike, and that would have been cool. What I got was a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide (Patrick) who took us on a tour that was an awesome combination of the usual high points and some fascinating side trips. (Dude knows a lot about all kinds of minutae, including chicken and tattoos and local plants and Texas history -- it totally didn't surprise me that he was a teacher in a past life!) We went places that I didn't know existed and had a blast. So, two thumbs up. And I would think this tour would be fine for almost anyone -- I drove because my mom gets nervous, but we were on easily operated, well maintained bikes and took safe, medium-traffic routes, and she totally could've handled it as well. Our fellow tour takers varied from college students on Spring break to, well, my mom. So anyone would enjoy it. And it's a pretty good deal for 2ish hours of really good guidance. Do it -- you'll be glad you did. More
Tyler was our tour guide and he was hilarious, fun and super entertaining. We took our kids with us (6 & 8) and they loved every second of it. I highly recommend doing this if you are visiting Austin! You wont regret it!
This a MUST tour in Austin! They have different tours of Downtown and we choose the Food Truck tour. There are so many food trucks for all types cuisines. You learn a little of the history of Austin, eat great food and ride a bike. The staff is super cool and they take great pictures for free! They welcomed us with plenty of water bottles, bandanas for some coolness and some gloves. As for Cope, he is fun and knows all the spots to have fun. I will definitely ride again.
I had no idea what to expect going into this, but it ended up being so much fun!! I never realized how much actually goes into making graffiti, and I have sooo much respect for the artists! Definitely recommend this if you want to change things up a bit! Bring a couple drinks with a group of friends and make an awesome piece of art!
