The Quick & Dirty Facts:

Why the Weird Austin City Tour is a can’t miss:

  • 2.5 hours jam-packed with Austin’s weird local lore, memorable residents, and hidden secrets
  • Local musician adds a little groove to this very un-traditional city tour
  • Snag Instagrammable pics at our favorite graffiti street art stops
  • See tons of Austin’s favorite attractions: Sixth Street, Capitol Building, Lady Bird Lake, South Congress, University of Texas, the East Side, plus lots of our favorite bars, restaurants, and live music venues
  • Visit Austin’s famous food trucks for a local specialty, on us!
  • Short walking tour across Lady Bird Lake for amazing Austin skyline photo ops (optional)
  • Prizes, trivia games, and lots of ruckus raising.
  • Tour may contain adult humor and risque language…you have been warned.  We recommend this tour for ages 13+.

Timing: 2.5 hours, available anytime (although we strongly encourage avoiding rush hour!)

Location: Free pick-up/drop-off anywhere in the Central Austin area, other locations available for extra charge

Monies: Starting at $39 per person, use the booking calendar for pricing for your group

If our private tour options do not fit into your travel plans, we encourage you to consider the public tour option. These experiences tend to be a “the more the merrier” affair, with the energy levels being a lot higher with a full crowd. So others on board, even if they’re strangers, often add to the fun!

How did Austin get its “weird” reputation? Why is Willie Nelson worshiped like a god king? What’s the deal with all the bats? Why are locals getting into bar fights over the best breakfast taco?

Find out all these answers and more…even if some of it may shock you…on our Weird Austin City Tour.

Here at Twisted Texas we trolled the archives, pestered locals, and maybe even did a little dumpster diving to know all the weird and wild tales of Austin. And now we want to share them with you. Your Twisted guide will show you the best of everything Austin has to offer: live music, food trucks, weird people, and oh so much more.

As an added bonus, we have a local musician riding shotgun to strum up some singalong classics and a few original tunes. So if you’re ready to do a little dance and make a little love to this incredible Texas city…this is the ride for you.

We make lots of killer stops along the way, with chances to sample local foods and have a snack (on us!), take a stroll across Lady Bird Lake, and snap cool photos of local murals and the downtown skyline.
