See the Best of Downtown Austin
The tour will begin at a predetermined location downtown. We will visit lower Congress Avenue, Lady Bird Lake, and Willie Nelson Boulevard. Tour can include a visit to the Texas State Capitol, the Capitol's Visitor's Center and the Bullock Texas History Museum and the President Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library.
The downtown area has numerous sites that are interesting to visit. At the time of booking we can discuss your itinerary. I would suggest the Texas State Capitol, President Johnson's Museum, the Capitol Visitor Center, historic Driskill Hotel, 6th Street, Lady Bird Lake, Austin City Limits's Moody Theater, and the famous bat bridge.

My husband and I and two friends took the history walking tour with Jeff. He met us at our hotel and returned us back to our hotel which was very convenient. Jeff is very knowledgeable about the history of Austin and the state capitol. He always made sure we were comfortable with the pace and that he was talking about what interests us. I recommend this tour by Jeff - he is very nice, attentive and clearly enjoys giving tours!
