What to expect
Climb aboard a distinctive double-decker bus at the cowboy-themed Houston City Tours Visitor Center.  Pop in your headphones and listen to informative onboard commentary as you cruise through the vibrant Texan city, passing iconic landmarks like the Chase Tower and the Convention Center.  Disembark the bus whenever you wish to explore an attraction further. Hop off near Market Square Park to sample a cosmopolitan variety of food in the historical 19th-century square; or, ascend to the vertiginous observation deck of the JP Morgan Chase Tower to enjoy sweeping vistas from Texas’ highest building.  Stop at City Hall to admire the tranquil park and historical structures that surround it, or absorb the electric atmosphere of the theater district as you explore the thriving 17-block area. Cross Hermann Park to visit Houston Zoo and the erudite Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Museum of Fine Arts.  Buses depart from each of the six stops every 75 minutes and run between 10am and 4pm. Please see the Itinerary section below for a full list of stops serviced.

We enjoyed the tour. However, It was disappointing that the Tour Ended with a 7 minute stop at the graffiti area. There were so many historical and spectacular parts of Houston that would have better represented downtown Houston. Saving the best until last certainly did not occur with the conclusion of this Tour. Also , the speaker's voice was muffled during most of the tour too much bass in the audio. Other than these 2 things the Tour was good.

It was a beautiful day to sit on the upper deck and see the city. Everything was clean and well kept. The information was good although it was hard to hear at times. The speaker system could have been better.

I really enjoyed this tour. I'm a native of Chicago and needed some stuff to do while visiting this beautiful place. I enjoyed learning about the history of Houston and seeing all of it's popular buildings and venues. Antonio was really nice! 😊 I definitely recommend for anybody who loves sightseeing!

Not worth the cost
I have taken several Hop-On Hop-Off bus tours over the years, and this is by-far the worst. Every bus I've been on in other locations have seats inside the bus, if customers get too hot/cold being on the top. This one did not, and Houston gets very hot and humid in the summer, so I don't know why they wouldn't have that.

They only had 3 times available on a Saturday. My friend and I did the last tour. I thought that even though they wouldn't have busses starting from the headquarters after that, that they would still have busses coming around to the stops so we could get off and explore. Nope! It was a Hop-On only tour...yet we still had to pay full price ($35).

Every bus I've been on also has handed out headphones so you can hear the driver/recordings. This one only had a speaker at the top of the bus, which made it very difficult to hear with all the sounds of traffic.

We took a 10:00 tour on April 19. This was a most informative introduction to downtown Houston. Our guide, Carmen, was very knowledgeable. You could sense her love and pride of her city. Put this trip on your “to do” list when coming to Houston.

I have lived in Houston for 20 plus years and I have driven through downtown several times, but this tour was so informative and I learned a lot. The driver who drove the 1pm tour 4/8/2021 was Awesome. He was so knowledgeable and nice and it made it even more pleasant. It was also warm and he provided us with Umbrellas. I can’t stop telling people to check it out it’s worth it. #Houston#

They need to ad more stops or more excitement to the tour. Guides are very good. I did it twice in two days. You pay for 2 days.
