Our driver was fun and entertaining. I liked the tour of Austin as we drove to Lake Austin. The lake was small and surrounded by houses, so not much to look at, really. Driving right in and out of the water is fun. The “quackers”...More

This was a great experience! The best part, as you can imagine, was driving head first into the lake. The tour guide, I forgot his name, was a very fun guide. Funny and kinda cute even! I'd recommend this for any age!

Fun tour around Austin. Our driver was funny and gave us some cool little facts about the city. I probably wouldn't have made it to Lake Austin had I not taken this tour. I think it's a little pricey but it was a one-time thing...More

What a waste of time and money. Only reason to do this tour is to experience an amphibious vehicle. Driver is obnoxious and loud. He never shut up for the whole tour which was intermingled by loud annoying music and kids quacking on kazoos It...More
