We loved the electric bike foodie tour. It was a great way to see Austin from a different perspective and try out new resturants.

Our tour guide, Donnalou, was outstanding. We really enjoyed our day on the lake. Even though it was hot, we were in the shade most of the time and the electric bike make it fun and easy (the throttle was our friend). Great girls day.
