We did this tour several weeks ago and REALLY enjoyed it. I think our guide was John and he was very knowledgeable about all things Houston. We went at a very manageable pace and John would stop to speak about different parts of the city. It was a great mix of sightseeing and a history / culture lesson. I would... More

Mia was an awesome tour guide. We biked at a very relaxing pace and the bikes were great for the amatuer cyclist - no gears and foot pedal brakes. An excellent way to spend a few hours and take in the city! I would recommned for friends, family couples

Very accommodating tour company, we recently did an afternoon tour with one of their enthusiastic and thoughtful new guides, Mia. Great way to see another side to a potentially impersonal business city, including roof top views from one of the tallest buildings in town.

My wife and I recently took the Bayou City Tour on a Saturday morning. One of the owners conducted the tour and we had about 10 other participants. The owner/guide was very friendly and knew his city and history. The pace was relaxed, the terrain is flat and the bikes were very comfortable. Much of the riding is on bike... More

We had the best time cruising through the city on our 5 year anniversary! Loved the tour and Mia was a great guide. The bikes were super comfy for the 3 hour ride. We stopped for lunch in Market Square. Highly recommend for a fun couple activity or a first date! It was perfect! Thank you so much!

John was a great tour guide. He takes pride in his job and enjoys speaking about his city. He was very informative and even gave us tips and recommendations on where to go eat, etc.... I definitely recommend this tour as it helps you understand what is around the city. Cost is reasonable for the length of the tour.

I loved our tour with Bayou City Bike Tours. I've lived in Houston for 4 years now, but I never have toured it by bike for a full day. I took 2 of my friends on this tour with me who were visiting from Dallas and Atlanta, and it was the perfect January day for a bike tour of Houston... More

I arranged to take the bike tour on the same morning I had arrived for a visit to Houston. I went on a Saturday tour of the downtown area led by Phil. It was a good trip, with informative comments. I'm glad to see that Houston has added attractive bike paths and public spaces downtown -- it was sorely needed.... More

We had a group of 12 do the afternoon Heights tour. I've lived in Houston for 7 years and it was a route I didn't know - a nice ride through some great neighborhoods, along bike trails, and we stopped at a few neighborhood bars and restaurants I had never visited before. John took care of all the details, all... More

This was a unique approach to seeing Houston. I've lived in Houston for nearly 20 years and never really taken the time to see the cultural and historical aspects of the city. This appeared to be a perfect opportunity to see the city and pick up a few neat facts along the way. I decided to invite my Dad as... More
