    Tour of Houston
    Sharon_B
    , Jul 2022
    We liked seeing the Emancipation park, Rice University, battle against Santa Ana and NASA Space Center. Only issue was getting around construction.
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
    Thanks Sharon! The constant construction in Houston is definitely the worst… but it sounds like you guys saw a whole lot of the city beyond that! So glad you enjoyed the tour!

    Not worth it

    No detours included on routes. Followed steps to download, but still had connection issues. Did not enjoy
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
    Hi Pam, not sure what detours I should have included? The tour route is laid out pretty clearly, both in the description and within the app.

    Difficult to sightsee
    Marcie_S
    , Jun 2022
    The tour was difficult to follow. There were two of us in the car, and I was busy trying to follow the directions and the driver was busy following the directions, and neither one of us could enjoy looking at the sights. There was one street on the tour that we never did find… went around the park three times.
    icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
    Thanks for the feedback Marcie. Driving in Houston can definitely be a struggle, especially when there’s traffic in downtown. If you have the chance to check out the second half of the tour, you may find it a lot easier — it’s pretty much straight roads and simple turns, ending with a drive over to NASA.

    Sharing Houston with...
    Keith_L
    , May 2022
    Sharing Houston with visiting family. Several of stops were blocked off because of events being held. Not notified adequately on how to correct. Several important sightseeing stops —athletic stops and historic areas not included Took longer than 2-3 hours to complete.
    icon Response from Host , May 2022
    Thanks Keith! We keep the tour as updated as possible but the city does have all sorts of daily events which can’t get included. Happy to add any major stops and stories to the tour — if there’s anything specific we missed, please let us know!

    Live GPS and Off-Line Navigation. It took a little while to get accustomed to using it. But after a few trys found it easy navigate through stops.
    icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
    Thank you! Navigating Houston can be tough so I’m glad this tour was able to show you everything that the city has to offer. I have more self-guided tours across the country and hope you get the chance to check them out for your future travels. Thanks again!

    Great Idea…. Went Too far out of town
    Laura_C
    , Feb 2022
    Great way to see Houston at your leisure! Price is good! Disappointed that the tour did not take us to the Big Water Wall! Did not have to go so far out of town towards the Space Center…. Just mentioning it would be fine! Would have enjoyed seeing a few of the cities famed murals! Would try in another city…preferred over the bus tours and the historic info shared was very interesting!
    icon Response from Host , Feb 2022
    Thanks Laura, I’m so glad you liked the tour! Now that some roadwork in Houston has been wrapped up, we’ll be adding some of the popular sights you mentioned back in. Thanks for the insight about the Space Center -- will definitely consider that during our next tour update. We have tons of self-guided tours in other cities (Boston, SF, Miami, etc) as well as national parks (Great Smoky, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, etc) -- all available on ActionTourGuide.com. Thanks again!

    I liked it
    Kathie_M
    , Feb 2022
    I actually ran out of time so I didn’t do most of the tour, but I listened to the entire thing and looked at the pictures which helped me to determine what to go back and see further.
    icon Response from Host , Feb 2022
    Thanks Kathie! I’m thrilled that you were able to flexibly use the tour to work for you — and you can use it again, as needed (it’s available forever). We also have more tours for your future travels at ActionTourGuide.com. Thanks again!

    This was such a great tour. I even like how the app picks up where you left off and helps you navigate to each destination.
    icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
    Thank you so much! Houston has so much to offer and we love being able to tell all of its wonderful stories at each spot around town. We have more self-guided tours across the country (details at ActionTourGuide.com) and I hope you get the chance to check them out for your future travels. Thanks again!

    Could be better
    Amanda_i
    , Aug 2021
    It's a good idea of a tour however I personally would have liked a bit more of sites to see within the city or downtown. Versus historical parts which some we could not find. The information for the sites and spits were very knowledgeable.
    icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
    Thanks for letting us know! We’d love to know what additional spots you had in mind — we’re always looking to add to and improve the tour! Please shoot us an email or call/chat (links in the original email). Looking forward to hearing back. Thanks again!

    City tour by your own!

    It was great!! Maybe would be great if the route can be marked in google maps to follow it in carplay
    icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
    We’re thrilled that you had a great time in Houston! CarPlay is sadly off-limits to us but we are brainstorming other ideas. Thank you for your feedback! We hope you’ll consider using Action Tour Guide for your next trip—just visit ActionTourGuide.com to see our full selection.

    Fun facts but frustrating drive
    Jennifer_J
    , Mar 2021
    We enjoyed the fun facts, but navigating between the tour app and Google maps was a bit frustrating. We were lost several times, and after 2 hours of looping around we gave up.
    icon Response from Host , Mar 2021
    Thanks for letting us know! It sounds like using both the tour and Google Maps (presumably with the Go To button) was difficult. Could you tell us if you were able to follow the route on the app’s map without using the Go To option? I personally find that more convenient because there’s no toggling required. We are considering taking away the Go To button entirely since following the route is a better experience anyway. Would love to hear your thoughts — please email us. Also, since you didn’t have a great experience, we’d be more than happy to issue a refund.
