Thank you so much for coming out with us ! The Murder Walk Austin tour chronicles the horrific acts of the “Servant Girl Annihilator” in the year 1885. Widely considered America’s first serial killer, this is a true crime walk that can’t be missed:) This little known story from Austin’s history is quickly becoming our most popular tour! Thanks again for your review. Best, JM

The guide was engaging and knowledgeable. Would have been helpful to make sure the whole group was together before speaking and to stop at places without loud music. Maybe walk a little further down and then talk and point out the place. Overall though the info was good and we really enjoyed his presentation.

Best tour we took while in Austin! The owner/tour guide has you engaged immediately with his knowledge of the murders, and his passion for the subject. He not only covered the facts, but discussed all the different theories surrounding the murders. I won't go into detail so not to give anything away. I would not hesitate to take another tour with this company. Make sure you bring comfortable walking shoes. Tour lasted a little over two hours.

Loved how enthused the tour guide was. He seemed knowledgeable about the area, had theories, and tried to keep everyone engaged. Would have liked the tour to end where we started.

Thanks so much for joining the tour. Our route for Murder Walk Austin is dictated by the actual true crime events that occurred in 1885, from first to last. As a result our last stop is about 1/2 miles from our start:) Worth it though, I think:) Thanks again for touring with Murder Walk Austin!
