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

My husband and I took this tour as we live in the suburbs and never really go downtown. Jeremy, our guide, was great and as well as taking us around the tunnels also gave us lots of Houston history and information on the buildings that we went in and past. As well as the tunnels we went to the 60th... More

I've lived in Houston for two years and haven't really taken advantage of downtown. My fiancee and I decided to take the Pub Crawl tour and it was great! Mike was a great guide and the bars we visited were very cool. One tip though, make sure you get a hotel room downtown if you plan to drink at every... More

I have lived in Houston for a decade now and had no idea of how to navigate the downtown tunnel system. This tour opened my eyes to an unknown part of this great city. I highly suggest this tour to any Houstonian who has not been in the tunnels.

I've lived in Houston mu whole life and just recently I realized that I wasn't taking advantage of all there is to do and see. Houston is an amazing city with a strong spirit and love for diversity. I had no idea how extensive our tunneling system was. I always pictured tunnels like on teenage mutant ninja turtles. LOL Sandra... More

My wife and I have lived in the Houston area for many years, but never really get a chance to explore downtown. The Pub Crawl tour with Mike was excellent, he was a wealth of knowledge, and took us to some excellent places, ones we will certainly visit again. It was fun, and we had a blast, even stayed out...
