This was the company's first run down South Congress, and it went swimmingly. Lee shared interesting facts and anecdotes about the area. The group of about 15 people went at around a 12-13 min/mile pace, so super comfortable, slow enough to talk. We paused at several points along the course, and the brewery at the end was awesome! The entire... More

We had a great time exploring Austin with Lee as our guide. Who knew running could be fun? Loved the history lesson that Lee provided as well. We'll definitely be doing it again in the near future!

We met the rest of the group at a local coffee shop and we got started on time. Lee took us of a tour of the south side of Austin. We occasionally stopped and took pictures. Although part of the group was slower than the main pack, fellow guides (walked and ran) with the stragglers. We all made it to... More

I want to give a shout out to my tour guide, Shelby. I had so much fun on the tour! She was so great, and as a newcomer to Austin, I learned so much about the history and architecture of this wonderful city. It's those old buildings that harbor the history of this city. Shelby brought to life the stories... More

I've lived in Austin for more than a decade but learned some interesting facts about this city I love on the City Running Tour with Lee. Moving slowly through the city, as you can do only on foot, is truly the best way to discover the magic around every corner. Lee was a great guide -- very knowledgeable but made... More

Our family and some friends were looking to get outside in our town and came across City Running Tours. Lee and Shelby were knowledgeable, fun and encouraging to our whole group as we learned a bit about Austin. Being newcomers to the city it was entertaining as well as informational. We were a slower group, and Lee was great at... More

Wife and I moved here over the summer but hadn't gotten to know downtown too well yet! Then we went on a run with some friends of ours and Lee. Lee is amazing, super knowledgeable, fun and engaging, and he was great about keeping a pace that was right for the whole group (lots of different running levels but he... More
