This music crawl was a great experience. Steven was comical and lovely. He picked 3 cool venues which allowed us to have a true country music experience. And the little gift at the and was the icing on the cake
My group was led by Ike. He provides great commentary of the music scene in Austin, as well as the surroundings. The first stop at Saxon Pub was my least favorite. The music was okay, was very crowded. I didn't identify Mr. Freeman until about half our stay when I got a better view and saw another person on the stage - Mr. Freeman.
The White horse had more space. Could see better, more comfortable setting. Miss Bessie did a good job - two step's heaven.
My favorite was Flyaway lounge with Brown Sugar. Enjoyed the environment, and the music.
Ike was especially solicitous of me, I was traveling alone. He was very friendly and professional. This was a great experience and would probably take again when in Austin to see sights/venues I wouldn't find by myself.
If you're lucky enough to have Stephen as your tour guide, you are guaranteed great fun! We enjoyed three very different genres of music and really got a good feel for the Austin music scene. Stephen shares a wealth of knowledge about Austin and gives lots of suggestions about how to spend the remainder of your time in Austin. My friend and I booked the tour for our first night in Austin and it was the perfect way to kick off our girls' weekend!
My group of 4 included a handicap person on wheelchair, we called prior taking the tour and asked if it was ADA accessible and it was confirmed it was. First the wheelchair did not fit in the back of the ban so we had to take it beside the sliding side door, making it impossible to exit in case of emergency. We visited 3 bars and again none of which had ADA accessible place for a wheel chair. It was very uncomfortable not only for the handicap person but for the rest of my party that had to stay standing in on 2 of tha bars.
We really enjoyed our live music tour! Steven was fun and well informed - really made it an enjoyable evening. We met some great people on the tour and the music was outstanding!!!! We would definitely recommend this tour.
