Michael is a good tunnel guide

Interesting tour of a little-known part of Houston. Good historical context and interesting architecture. Thanks for a fun excursion!

I purchased a voucher through LivingSocial to participate in the Rice Village Chocolate Tour. It was a bit of a pain and took a few tries to get a hold of the right person in the first place -- I remember having to leave a few messages and even mistakenly calling the previous owner of Houston Urban Adventures (I think...

Mike was a really great tour guide. We had fun winding through the downtown Houston tunnels and learning fun facts. It was really amazing to go to the top of the chase building and see the entire city from 60 floors up. I am a native Houstonian and it was fun to learn some interesting and fun facts about my...

we booked this tour using a Groupon and had no problems redeeming it. After reading other reviews we made sure we allowed plenty of time to travel to the tour and we parked a couple of blocks from the meeting spot for a reasonable price. It transpired that it was only DH and I on the tour but it felt... More

Mike was a great tour guide with a great sense of humour and I highly recommend him to British tourists that have yet to find an American that both understands and practises sarcasm. The tour was very interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a nice change to spend the day with a true southern gentleman.

Still with the night hours ahead to explore Houston, we booked a Downtown Houston Historic Pub Tour, a visit to 4 different pubs in the historic area, with an amazing tour guide (his name is Mike), we enjoyed every story behind Houston's Pubs for about 3 hours (duration of the tour).

Having lived in the suburbs of Houston for over twelve years I still had not really explored downtown. I picked this tour as a birthday present for my husband and we went with a few friends. Mike makes this tour very interesting with the history of Houston but he also has a great sense of humor. He made sure we... More

Mike is fantastic! He gave great facts about Houston while giving everyone enough time to enjoy each bar. My group had one of the best nights out in months. I'm not a huge history fan but loved leaning about Houston on this tour. Would do it again! Thanks Mike
