I had not seen my sister in over 2 years since this pandemic and we wanted to spend 4 memorable days together. No kids no family. I wanted my sister to experience some history and ghost stories and we booked a guided tour with Haunted Austin Walking History Tour. Jim was our tour guide. He made the experience memorable. He took the time to point out all the historical sites of the area while getting to know each one of us in the tour and sharing all his knowledge about the fascinating Austin history. Thank you Jim for making the experience my sister and I had precious.

My family (3 kids and two adults) kayaked with Rives and it was so fun! We went on a sunny beautiful Spring day and saw turtles and lots of people on lady bird lake. Rives did an amazing job leading us and telling us all about the Austin Skyline! Would recommend to anyone!
