That is was true; that the guide was so personable and wasn’t rigid with schedule! Great fun!! He made sure my husband found a scooter to use since her knee started hurting.

The tour was a good mix of Austin history and ghost stories! Our story teller used real pictures to further visualize the stories and show Austin hundreds of years earlier.
