Bobby S at Austin Detours is everything you could ask for in a guide-personable, knowledgable, and organized. He did a fantastic job picking out our agenda for the night-we went to completely different places with different ones and music and they were all fun to listen to. Bobby made the evening more enjoyable than had we just done it on our own. He has the perfect personality for his job. If I go back, I will definitely book this again.

I booked the BBQ & Brew Challenge for my client's Team Building activity and dinner. We had about 45 people attend from various positions of association leadership. The group had a wonderful time and we received rave reviews. A special shout out to Bobby for being a wonderful and energetic game show host. The rest of the team was also fantastic at keeping us on track and getting everything set up and cleaned up. I would definitely consider booking them again!

We arrived in Austin just after SXSW had gotten cancelled, and right as toilet paper was becoming a distant memory in Texas. We did the music crawl on a Monday night, just 4 of us and our guide, Brent. I guess nobody is doing the tour tonight with the clubs closed due to COVID-19. When the tours are back on (soon, I hope), I'd recommend you take this tour. We went to three different venues out of the downtown area (so it is unlikely, we would have found them on our own), and saw 3 bands with completely different styles. Brent was a really good guy and very knowledgeable about the local music scene and the artists we saw. He does the driving, so you can drink comfortably, and don't need to know where to go or find parking. I mistakenly left my jacket at the 2nd club, and while we enjoyed the band at the third, he went back and got my jacket. He even texted us a few days later to check in on us (again, due to COVID-19). Like I said, a really good guy. Thanks again, Brent. If we're in Austin again, we will definitely look into another Austin Detours tour.

Californians are very proud of our wineries. When I heard that Austin had an up and coming wine scene, it made for a great best friends getaway weekend! It was nice that we could literally walk the City streets to the Visitors Center for tour pick-up. The best souvenirs can be purchased a this amazing Visitors Center. Jax Washington was our driver and tour guide. What a lovely person! Jax has a dynamic personality for giving tours as this is seen her her love of Austin. The drive was comfortable and beautiful. The two of us were added to a large group of friends who were on the same tour to celebrate a birthday. Jax's goal was for all of us to leave the tour as friends but the larger group were very inclusive. We managed to have fun aside from them. Jax was very apologetic for having us on tour with a large private group. One thing happened out of the control of Austin DeTours. The first winery immediately on arrival, without a greeting or question, were told we were not allowed in the private tasting room because it was for a reservation tour. The lady clerk was totally surprised that we were part of that reservation. She had taken one look at the two of us and made us feel so unwelcomed based on an assumption that we could not and did not belong to the tour. Very sad there are still people who act this way in today's Metropolitan world. But as for Jax and the DeTour, we had a very nice day!

Our guide was funny and gave us great insights into the different highlights of the city. We did this on our first day and it was great because it helped us figure out what areas were most interesting for us to explore further during the rest of our stay. We had two kids 9 and 12 and it helped them get interested in the city and look forward to the rest of our trip. We covered a lot of ground in 3 hours!
