What people are saying about Austin

Great bars and presentation. Lots of discussion on the many Austin murders. The weather made it more difficult to enjoy, but that's outside the guide's control.

The views were amazing! But the stories were told in very loud areas that made it hard for all people on the tour to hear.

A nice walk from bar to bar with Austin true crime stories.
