Mike took us all over Austin and was very knowledgeable and funny. We loved seeing the bats and learned so much along the way. Make sure you are dressed and in shape enough for a true bike adventure. It was a really fun way to see lots of Austin and get some exercise in along the way!

This tour was amazing. Mike was very knowledgeable and the ride was fun and peaceful. The ride took us through the trail under trees and by the lake and springs as well as up and down hills and passages until we stopped close to see the bats at night. I’d definitely recommend and do this tour again!

The tour was great, and Mike really knows his stuff. Learned all about Austin while having a great view of the bats at the end of the tour. Highly recommend!
