Austin Private Tour History
Influential History

Nomadic Indigenous Indian's traversed the area that would become Austin for centuries before a temporary Spanish mission in the late 1700s and the first permanent settlement in the 1830s. The Lone Star state has evolved from an independent republic, to a member of the Confederacy, to the 28th State of the US. Austin was selected as the State Capital and named for Stephen F. Austin, “The Father of Texas”. Since 1888, all aspects of Austin city life and statewide civic innovation are governed within the Capitol’s impressive Hill Country limestone and granite walls.

Delectable Dining

From legendary pit barbecue to upscale sushi, Austin holds a special place in the heart of foodies from near and far. Amuse your palate with Tex-Mex at its finest. While most cities with good barbecue fight over who has the best brisket (Franklin’s or La Barbecue are worthy competitors), Austin might be the only city to dispute who has the best breakfast taco. Make an eclectic meal from a collection of food trucks or relax with a cocktail and a scenic view of Hill Country at sunset. Make sure to bring your appetite, because Austin is bound to tickle your taste-buds. Incorporate dining into your Austin Private Tour.

Natural Landscapes

With stunning sunsets over rolling hills, Austin has more to offer than just what you’ll find downtown. For adventurers looking for nature, you’ll find paddleboarding or kayaking on Lady Bird Lake or Lake Austin. Take a leisurely bicycle ride for another perspective, then relax with a bite to eat in one of the area’s delicious restaurants. Travel farther afield, hiking to the perfect spot for swimming at Hamilton Pool Preserve, or tubing at Barton Creek Greenbelt. Incorporate landscapes into your Austin Private Tour.



Unforgettable Excursions

Texas Hill Country is considered the border between the American Southwest and Southeast. Austin is one of the major cities, but over 25 counties are part of Hill Country, leaving a vast area to explore. Head to Fredericksburg to partake in tasting at one of the many wineries or to hunt for treasures in charming local shops. Take a trek to San Antonio and visit the Alamo, stroll along the San Antonio River Walk, or stop at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. Incorporate excursions into your Austin Private Tour.
