I was blown away by our city under the city. I've lived here for 27 years and never knew all this existed. It's definitely worth the cost and will give some new dining options as well. Vanessa was the ultimate tour guide mixing information with humor . Will definitely be back again soon!

Great tour and tour guide!

Our tour guide was so personable and bubbly! She texted us earlier in the day with information, greeted us, was so friendly, would answer any questions we asked, was full of information, etc! She used our time in the tour very wisely and even showed us things I didn’t imagine we would see. She wanted this to be a great experience for everyone. When it started to rain at the end of the tour, she asked us all where we needed to go and directed everyone to those locations and even walked one group all the way back to the tour starting point to ensure they got back. She asked where else people were going and offered recommendations and suggestions for those places if people wanted them and even gave extra recommendations about the area to us all! She was a wealth of knowledge and one of the best tour guides we’ve ever had! I highly recommend this tour and our tour guide, Vanessa!

Hello B, Thank you for joining us on tour! This tour really is the "coolest" tour in town. It's amazing how far you can travel in the tunnels and how much you can see below ground. of course there are a few street level views to enjoy the skyscrapers on top. Please let us know if we may offer any other suggestions.

I have lived in Houston for years and had no idea that downtown Houston had so much hidden down below street level! Vanessa was an incredible tour guide with an encyclopedic knowledge of every building and tunnel on the tour. Would highly recommend this tour to both tourists and Houstonites!

Ava_W

Vanessa was a great guide and gave an enjoyable and informative tour. Very polite and helpful, and took us to places we never would have found on our own. Took off 1 star because she spoke too fast for our large group to catch everything.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Hello Ava, The first announcement our guides give when starting a tour is asking our guests to notify them if they are speaking too fast or have any questions. We spoke with Miss. Vanessa and she said your group of four never made any comments of that sort and she answered all the questions your group had. All our guides are friendly and approachable. If you had said something she would have been able to accommodate for you and your group. Sadly there isn't anything we can fix to make you happy after the tour. We ask all our future guests to please communicate with your guide. Our guides want you to have an enjoyable and memorable experience. If you would like to discuss this further please email us at astrovilletours@gmail.com

Cool view of hidden Houston
Lynne_W
, Jun 2022
This tour is very varied and Vanessa is a lively and knowledgeable guide. You get some sense of the scale of the massive tunnel network under the city but also get to see some amazing interiors of historic skyscrapers and modern classic architecture. There are quirky lifts and it's interesting to see the city's flood defences and damage caused in recent flooding. Vanessa takes and sends you some great photos of the group. And most of the tour is literally cool! Loved it.

Hello Lynne, We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Houston from England! This tour really is literally cool since we get to enjoy traveling through downtown in the tunnels. The buildings architecture (elevators included) are breath taking. Ya'll come visit us again real soon.

Vanessa was wonderful. Tons of knowledge and very fun! If anyone is concerned whether or not these kinds of tours are legit, no need to worry about this one. It was impressive how Vanessa knew every building's security guards, building managers, shop owners, etc... throughout the tour. You know you are in good hands when the people who run things greet her warmly everywhere you go!
