It was great. Took us to fun places (not just the restaurants). Zachary was a wonderful guide. He had so much knowledge about the area and the restaurants and history. He also had a great sense of humour which made the tour even more fun. Food was really good. Went to 2 taco places, however, they were both very different. I would highly recommend the tour if you want to experience downtown Austin.
