The best part of our experience was our guide, Greg. Very kind, knowledgeable guide and host. Greg had so many details about Houston. Found Houston to be affordable, safe with many amenities. Downtown especially with the underground tunnels, dog parks, parks, history, bike trails, shops, ten million dollar mansions to how Houston maintains the homeless.

Disappointed

If you expect to take pictures in scenic places this is not the right tour for you. I have been to more than a dozen of city tours but this is the 1st time that we just stayed inside the van while the guide is making commentaries he is knowledgeable about the place. Yes informative but never had the chance to take photos. For me its not worth the money. My whole family is with me I was expecting good photos as souvenir from this family trip. But we had none.

We're so sorry you did not enjoy your experience on the tour. We are not a Hop-on Hop-Off tour and the tour covers so many locations that time would not permit a stop for photos at every location as this would add at least another hour to the tour but it is obvious you did not ask your guide for photo opportunity as we make 1-2 stops for photos at the best locations if this is requested. CURRENTLY THERE ARE NO TOUR COMPANIES IN HOUSTON THAT OFFER SHARED TOURS WITH CONTINUOUS HOP-ON, HOP-OFF EXPERIENCE. Our Hop-on Hop off tour requires you book THE PRIVATE TOUR WE OFFER FOR MULTIPLE STOPS. This way travelers who just want to see Houston are not slowed down with continuous stops. For future reference we recommend hotel accommodations in an area for tourism and attractions as opposed to remote areas where none of this exist or take our private tour so that everything done is to accommodate 1 family only. If you are interested in a PRIVATE TOUR for the same individuals on your previous tour please contact us for this at a 30% discounted rate. Despite all we hope you enjoyed your stay in Houston and thank you for visiting.

Greg was fantastic. We took this tour on an “off day” from MD-Anderson care. The hotel pick up was easy and we had a ball- especially looking at the lavish homes in River Oaks. Greg was so informative and he gave a great city overview and tips so we know what to do on a return trip. He was 10 stars! Highly recommend!!!
