Having lived in the suburbs of Houston for over twelve years I still had not really explored downtown. I picked this tour as a birthday present for my husband and we went with a few friends. Mike makes this tour very interesting with the history of Houston but he also has a great sense of humor. He made sure we... More

Mike is fantastic! He gave great facts about Houston while giving everyone enough time to enjoy each bar. My group had one of the best nights out in months. I'm not a huge history fan but loved leaning about Houston on this tour. Would do it again! Thanks Mike

I had incredible luck and had a private tour with Mike who is the nicest and most personable tour guide. He knows a lot about Houston and has lots of little info tidbits/places to see which you would otherwise walk right past. Would highly recommend their tunnel tour in addition to their pub tour.

I'm glad I finally found somebody who could explain the tunnel system to me. The history that we learned before entering the tunnel system was interesting. The tunnel system was way more expansive than I had thought. We enjoyed the tour and would suggest it to others.

We like to travel and in doing so learn a lot about other cities from sightseeing. Yet we live in Houston and don't really know any of it's history. This tour gave us the opportunity to explore our own backyard and learn about its history. It's boring (to me) to read about history in a book, but seeing a historic... More

I wanted to do something special on my 38th anniversary in honor of my husband who passed away on June 30, 2013 so I asked my sister to join me on the tunnel tour in downtown Houston. Our guide, Mike, was a wealth of information and he made us feel welcomed. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Thanks to... More

I brought my husband out for the Historic Pub Crawl on his birthday. We're not normally social people, but we had a fantastic time learning about Houston AND spending time getting to know the other people on the tour. The bars we visited were an experience of their own, but I think the fellow tourists (which, we were all from... More

Very knowledgable tour guides and interesting subject matter make this is a much-do tour for visitors and natives alike. Something new to see and learn for everyone. Adaptable tour guides are quick to adjust to the interests of the group. Highly recommend.

This was an amazing tour to see "Underground" Houston! Our guide, Sandra, was a treasure trove of Texas history, not just Houston. In addition, she was very knowledgeable of current events as it relates to Houston. Enjoyed this immensely!

Even if you have lived in the area, you will no doubt learn several things you never knew and see surprising things. Our tour guide was Jeremy and he was fantastic. He was attentive to the whole group and spoke clearly and where we could all hear. You can tell he enjoys giving tours and sharing the history of Houston.... More
