What you'll do

We are excited to be outside, grabbing some Vitamin D, social distancing, and showing you around one of the top 25 Coolest Neighborhoods in the World! We limit capacity and are taking safety precautions so come join us.

If you enjoy street art and graffiti or know nothing about it, you will LOVE this highly rated tour. Discover parts of East Austin that never made it into a guidebook on the ever-changing street art scene. Whether you're looking for great photo ops, art history, or the inside scoop on local living in Austin, this street art tour will touch on all of these subjects. Together, we'll explore one of Austin's largest concentrations of public art. Reviews of this well curated tour focus on the tour guide's knowledge and passion of the artists and their artwork. By the end of the walk, we guarantee you'll know more about Austin's public art than most local residents, and you'll never look at murals, street art, or graffiti the same way again.

Douglas grew up in the Santa Fe art scene and managed a rockin' contemporary art gallery. He started his art career on the walls of his grandparent's home while visiting as a child. He is pretty sure his grandparents would be proud of his tour.

Eileen is a mosaic junky and has been working with ceramic mosaics for 15 years. She also ran a large painting company where she honed her stenciling and painting skills. Eileen loves sharing Austin's cool art scene with others.

Douglas was a very informative host. Not only did we learn about the history behind the graffiti art, but we got an excellent workout during the mile walk. Parking wasn't an issue because I followed directions by parking on Willow & Martinez. I definitely recommend this to everyone especially if its your first time in Austin.

Nice walking street art tour. It was much better than I expected. Great idea for a group of friends. Even the skeptics enjoyed it. Douglas was really knowledgeable about the pieces and gave short, interesting stories about the area and the art we saw. Also, try the food trucks near the meet up spot. We doubled back to sample some of the restaurants we saw along the way.

I wasn’t sure what to expect; this was my first art tour. However, after this great experience it won’t be the last. Very interesting and as a tourist in Austin I felt like I was able to really learn more about the city through its local art. No complaints and just good things to say about the tour with Doug. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

It was an awesome experience and we got to experience art that we would've have seen without Douglas! He really knows his art and a way to keep people entertained! I had to give 5 stars. If you enjoy art and learning about culture of others, this tour is perfect.

This is a "Must Do" tour in Austin. A great mix of art, culture, and history in a leisurely stroll. This was part of a birthday weekend trip for my girlfriend and she loved it. Such a great way to really experience the East Austin scene!
