I live here and can show you why it is called The Live Music Capital of the World. "
My goal is to customize a tour to meet your interests. Austin is a very walkable and bike friendly city. If you are interested in seeing the State Capitol, University of Texas, famous 6th Street, or the President Johnson Museum I can give you an historical, political, and architectural overview.
I taught in the Dallas / Ft. Worth area prior to teaching in Colombia, Cyprus, Philippines and Saudi Arabia. After retiring from Saudi Aramco Schools I moved to Austin. Since 2013 I have worked as a student tour guide for the Texas State Capitol, as well as a tour guide for the University of Texas. I have been a docent at the Smithsonian Flight Museum in Dallas, and the Bullock Texas History Museum here in Austin.
I have a Masters degree from the University of Texas. I am a certified teacher with additional endorsement in Montessori, and International Baccalaureate in Mathematics. I have also completed the tour guide/ director course with the International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) in 2015.
My aim is to continue as an ambassador for Central Texas. Come for a visit and see why we are so proud of Austin!
A Recent Review of this guide
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!
