Austin Adventures Advantage
Partnered with the right people.
From our decision to partner with our colleagues at Xanterra, to our
longstanding relationships with operators everywhere from Nicaragua to Namibia, to our newly forged
friendships in places like Australia and Argentina, we pride ourselves at Austin Adventures on pairing up
with exactly the kinds of people and organizations whose values parallel our own, and whose knowledge,
experience and credibility enhance the Austin Adventures experience.
#1 in Family Travel.
Voted the best tour operator in the world in 2012 for family travel, we can
comfortably say that we wrote the formula for family fun. Our family adventures include extra guides and
vans, special equipment and separate activities so grownups can enjoy some “adult time” (even if that
means curling up with a book at the hotel). Offering a perfect blend of R&R, comfort and adventure, you
simply can’t beat an Austin Adventures family vacation.
Smaller is better.
With a 6:1 ratio of guests to guides (the lowest in the industry) and a maximum of
18 guests per trip (most average 10), our small groups allow us to offer personalized, above-and-beyond
service for each of our guests. It’s our promise at Austin Adventures to give you exactly what you want,
Our guests call them the “WOWs.”
They’re the unexpected details that amaze and delight throughout
your adventure. An ice cream sundae on Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park. A surprise sundowner on the
Serengeti. A birthday toast over wine and cheese at an open-air market in Slovenia. “Wowing” our guests is
something we do on every adventure, and it’s often these signature extras you’ll remember the most.
We hear it over and over again in our evaluations: “We would have never done this on
our own!” Our guides encourage guests – adults and kids alike – to let go of their everyday mindsets and to
step safely out of their comfort zones. Whether tackling a 12-mile bike ride or leaping from the rim of a
30-foot waterfall, Austin Adventures vacations are about trust, and trying new things.
Leave the legwork to us.
At Austin Adventures, we take care of all the details, large and small, so your
only job is to show up – and have fun! Leave the logistics to us: the activities, guides, gear, hotels,
restaurants – you name it, we’ve got it covered.
Join us on any one of our adventures and experience for yourself what our
guests and the media have been raving about for 40 years! Expect nothing short of five-star service, with
the confidence that Austin Adventures is one of the few in the industry that offers up to a full money-back
