Activities and Tours

Live Music Crawl
Length: 3-4 hours
Austin is the self-proclaimed “Live Music Capital of the World” and our crawl proves that the hype is more than justified. With over 250 venues spread around the city, the options are mind-boggling. We work with all the best and most iconic venues to come up with a schedule for each crawl that shows you different areas of town, highlights a variety of venues, and gives you a wide array of music on each tour. We focus mostly on blues, rock, country, zydeco, rockabilly, singer-songwriter and jazz (and sorry, no rap or heavy metal). In between venues, you’ll learn a bit about how the music scene got started and who they key players are. This detour simply rocks!

This is a private experience. Contact Bobbi at Bobbi@austindetours.com or call (512) 962 8636 to book.

Musical History Tour of Austin
Length: 2 hours
Discover Austin’s musical heritage and what makes us the “Live Music Capital of the World”. Austin’s live music tradition is unrivaled just about anywhere on earth, and our Musical History of Austin tour uncovers the history behind the hype. We’ll weave around town visiting key heritage neighborhoods and musical sites, starting at 6th Street, the epicenter of today’s nightlife scene, and then going back in time to where it all started in the 1800’s at Scholtz Biergarten. We’ll trace our steps through via the historic Victory Grill, the Armadillo World Headquarters, Threadgill's, Saxon Pub and the Moody Theater, home to ALC Live. Hear about Austin legends such as Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin, Stevie Ray Vaughan and modern day local celebrities such as Bob Schneider, Malford Milligan and Guy Forsyth.
