Full description
On this tour, let your local guide zip you through the city's top historical landmarks, visiting pristine parks and vibrant murals along the way. Learn more about Houston's vast collection of culinary choices that makes it one of the culinary centers of the world. Visit sports venues, museums, and the third largest theatre district in the country.  One of the highlights of this city sightseeing tour is viewing the so-called 8th Wonder of the World: The Astrodome. Built in 1965, the Astrodome was the world's first indoor air-conditioned stadium. Though the stadium is closed, visitors from all over the world still come to marvel at the iconic structure. After you hit all the top sights, pick up some recommendations from your local guide for nightlife and restaurants in Houston so you can make the most of your time in the vibrant city. Make sure to bring your camera — you’ll have many opportunities to stop for priceless photo-ops. The fleet of carts can accommodate groups ranging from 1-50 people per tour, though groups of 2 may be paired with up to 3 other people.

Very nice and knowledgeable tourist. He knew so much about the city and it was nice to hear all of the information. Only cons are that it can be difficult to see all of the sights because you don't get out of the car and that the hour and a half includes pickup/drop off. Wished the timing would have been clearer and that it stopped at points so we could get a better view and take pictures.

This was such a fun city tour! I have lived outside of Houston for many years so it was neat to go on a tour and hear historical facts, and see unique landmarks and art work I would have never noticed on my own. Sarah was our guide and she was really kind and knowledgeable. I like how she customized the tour according to our interests. I will definitely plan another tour when I have guest come down to visit.
