Great tour guide w/ great info. The 4 bars were dead, limited in drinks, and the whole city was eerily quiet on a Friday night. The 4th biggest city in the U.S. is as flat as the landscape.

This was a great way to experience the downtown bar scene in Houston. Our guide Dre had so much knowledge but kept it light and fun. I liked that we could purchase our own drinks and food along the way as well.
