FREE TOUR OF AUSTIN: Republicans, texans and and the essentials of Austin


Is this perhaps your first trip to Austin? Or maybe even to Texas? Come along with us on this tour of old downtown Austin, as we explore the once sleepy town and its hidden culture amongst the high rises. On this tour we will discover the history of Austin, and its important role as the governmental seat for not only a state, but for what was once a struggling republic. We will visit monuments and important homes. We will begin at City Hall, making our way towards Congress Bridge; Driskill Hotel and Paramount Theater; The Texas Capitol, a Historical Moontower, and many more locations in the old downtown. We will also discuss the city’s earliest inhabitants, the Texas Revolution conflict, and the role Austin played in the early years of the Texas Republic.

    A Free Tour is an entertaining way to learn about the history and culture of a city. It is managed by professional guides who will take you through the most critical places in tours of approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes for free. At the end of the ride, the guides will accept tips or donations based on their performance on each ride.
  • Should I tip my guide?
    If the tour has been to your liking, you can tip your guide if you wish. Each professional works exhaustively to provide the best quality service.

    All of our Dublin walking tours end in the city center. If you have any doubts, your guide will help you at the end of each journey.
  • What happens if it rains at the time of the tour?
    All our tours count even if it rains, so we recommend you bring an umbrella or raincoat. If the weather turns dangerous, we will email you in advance to let you know whether or not the tour will take place.

Analise was amazing! She explained everything very good in a very comprehensive way and responded to all our questions, I will definitely recommend her tour to everyone I know that’s coming to Austin. We had a great time!



Our tour guide, Analise, was not only very knowledge about the history of Austin but was also very kind and engaging, answering any and all questions that we had. I always book a walking tour when I'm in a new city and this was definitely one of the best. Highly recommended 👍👍
