Whether or not you take a tour, please feel free to contact us for tips & recommendations about enjoying Austin safely during this time!*

What is Tipster?

It’s real simple. We lead entertaining walks around our favorite city – Austin! Rain or shine. Hell or high water. Just show up. 

There are no set fees for public tours, and no reservations required. If you enjoyed the experience, tip what you think is fair and can afford. Seriously, no guilt here. We’re cool with whatever you decide. Or if you prefer a private tour, we can do that too, for the price of an average tip on a public tour.

 We truly believe that if we do our best to create a great experience for people, without demanding anything in return… good things happen. We’re part of a world-wide movement bringing pay-what-you-like walking tours to everyone from backpackers to business people.

Each city has its own story, and we love sharing Austin’s with you. This is super-satisfying and why we do what we do.

We want everyone, regardless of budget, to experience every city like an insider.
