  • Great tour with fun and knowledgeable guide. Wonderful intro to Austin!

  • Totally Awesome. Great tour guide. Learned alot about Austin. Great way to see the area and have fun

  • I was in Austin for the first time and thought this would be great way to explore the city. Mike is a wonderful guide. He was friendly, engaging, and shared his knowledge about Austin. You'll have great views of downtown during the tour. If you love lakes, parks, and enjoy biking, then this tour is for you.

  • This was our first time in Austin, and we only had 3 days. So I was excited to see that there was a bike tour of the large Lady Bird Lake area. The tour was excellent! Mike was fun, engaging, chatty and, most importantly, extremely knowledgeable about the area and Austin in general. It was a great, energizing way to start our day. Loved it, and would highly recommend!

  • Amazing tour, worth the money and time.

  • I highly recommend this tour. Lake Bird Lake is a beautiful park and our tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about what Austin has to offer and very patient with our bike skills.

  • We arranged this tour in Austin TX for two adults and an 8- and 13-year-old nephew and niece. The guide didn’t bring a bike appropriately sized for the 8-year-old so the seat height was a real challenge. Mike the guide and owner was kind at first but quickly lost patience; struggling to manage the bike, our youngster lost control of the bike once, and Mike was worried about the bike. He left us behind as he rode fast and far ahead, so we juggled the pacing for our little trooper. Mike shared his negative experiences from his childhood concerning his parents’ divorce, something that wasn’t appropriate for the tour we had hoped to enjoy. It was a very hot day, and the last two miles of the trip could have included a quick stop at the spray park, even for a moment. It just wasn’t the quality of experience we have come to expect from Viator.
