The tour was recommended to us by the Chamber of Commerce, however the brochure they gave us did not indicate that there were a reduced number of trips in the off season. We went to meet for the tour and the driver said they had just completed the last tour for the day. Very disappointing.

We communicate the current schedule on our website as well as on the voicemail message on our business line. However, I was not aware until you brought it to my attention,... More

Took the 12:30 tour with Sue and it was awesome! She showed us some great sites and was a fountain of knowledge about Galveston. Very glad we did it. We also left some souvenirs on the bus and they were kind enough to get them back to us. Again if you want to see some great sites and get some... More

Susan was a great guide and tour bus driver! So enthusiastic and informative! We are native Houstonians and learned so much about Galveston on this one hour air conditioned tour through the Historical district and the East end. Lots of fun and inexpensive!

What an awesome way for our special needs group of 35 to see Galveston. Tour guides were super and so considerate of our group. Tour encompassed so much if Galveston with very little walking. The dolphin watch included in the Bay was a hit. 2 buses picked us up at our hotel and delivered us back in timely fashion. A... More
