At Austin Detours, we give locals and visitors a taste of everything in Austin. We have themed tours featuring art, music, food, sports, history, culture, crafts and more. We also offer public and private events. All our detours leave from the Austin Visitor Center located at 602 E. 4th Street. Get your Austin tour started today! Howdy! We’re Austin Detours – a locally-owned family business that loves to have fun! A true Austin experience. We provide themed outings – Handcrafted Austin Experiences – to both locals and visitors alike. Our tours cover all the major landmarks but we prefer to get off the tourist map and into the real Austin. Our guides are local artists, musicians, foodies, writers and small business owners: people who are part of the fabric of the city and offer unique insights and offbeat facts.Come as strangers, leave as friends. We believe much of what makes our tours great is people. We live in a time where everything seems automated and conversations happen more over text than in person. There’s a place for all that, but it’s still nice to enjoy each other’s company. Our tour guides are both interesting and inquisitive. They share their knowledge and create a fun environment among tour-goers. Sure, we could just play a tape recording of the sites, but that wouldn’t allow for any kind of genuine interaction. So come on, let’s explore Austin together!
