What people are saying about Downtown Houston

Our tour guide Vanessa was so personable and so into her job. She has a genuine love for the city of Houston, as well as for the tunnels she guided us through. Her excitement and descriptions of each of the places we visited made this tour a memorable one.

Informative, interesting, picturesque. I would highly recommend this tour to in and out of towners. Much to learn, much to see and some exercise as a bonus. Vanessa was our tour guide. She could not be more personable, enthusiastic or knowledgeable.

Rachel was great- friendly but professional. She had huge amount of information and imparted it well. Even gave us suggestions for a quiet lunch spot after the tour!

I learned much more history about the city than anticipated. The sights, of course, were outstanding.

Vanessa was amazing! Knowledgeable and friendly and simply an excellent tour guide!!
