Austin's "true crime" walking tour! The Murder Walk Austin tour will begin on June 7, 2019. This tour is only offered on Fridays and Saturdays. This tour will depart at 8:00 pm from the intersection of Bowie and West 6th,  at the corner of Whole Foods in downtown Austin, Texas.

In the year 1885 America’s first serial killer stalked the streets and alleyways of the young, emerging city of Austin. More terrifying than any ghost story, this monster brutally and systematically hacked eight women to death using an axe.  For one calendar year he terrified a city and came to be known as the “midnight assassin”.  He was never captured and his identity remains a mystery, or does it...?

This tour is our longest at 1 hour 45 minutes and covers 2 miles of historic Austin including West 6th street, Guy Town, the Warehouse District and a drink stop at the iconic Driskill Hotel. The pace is leisurely and, in addition to a drink stop at the Driskill, (drinks not included), there are short rests along the journey. 

Join us on this exceptional true crime walking tour investigating exact crime locations and the various theories surrounding the midnight assassin. It’s a “killer” tour.
