    "Houston, we have a problem." Everyone has heard those words at least once in their lives. My husband and his stepfather were interested in going to the Space Center in Houston since it had been years since their last visits. I was roped into going but my interest was minimal, at best. If you're a space lover, this is for you. If you're along for the ride, there are the gift shops and food halls. We arrived in the morning around opening to a bustling crowd. It turns out there was a cruise ship that docked that morning and we happened to arrive at the same time that they did. Parking was relatively easy.

    We got in line and told that tickets were a separate line. The SFIL went to purchase tickets while we waited in the entry line. The line moved fairly quickly and we were told firmly that we needed tickets to be in the line we were in. Okay, then. We got to the front just as SFIL arrived with the tickets. Hooray! We got scanned and posed for a photo at the entrance. That photo would later be used to place us in front of various backgrounds. We weren't allowed to take a photo of said photos because we had to buy them. Meh. On to the interior of the building. We walked through a few of the exhibits lining the hallways. Sally Ride's Space Uniform? Check. Neil Armstrong's first steps? Check. We got to touch one of eight moonrocks in the world that are touchable to the public. Good thing they had hand sanitizer everywhere. We got on a tram to visit the unlaunched Saturn V rocket. We did not get to see Mission Control due to their COVID protocols. There were 2 different trams running at the time and we did the red tram. We did get to see the interior of the space shuttle and the Boeing plane that would have carried it.

    I walked through the gift shop and noted the pricing on the shirts and memorabilia. The food hall was interesting with the variety of snacks, drinks, and food available for purchase. We were headed elsewhere for lunch that day so we spent about 2 hours there before heading out. An informative visit if you're a fan of NASA and the space program.

    The City tour was too short and didn't go to major Hounton venues. The NASA's space center is a good tour if you don't have a car.

    Great experience! It pays off to buy the city pass in advance. Houston has many interesting attractions with entertainment for the whole family.

    Ideal way to see Houston before rodeo. Had some friends in town and we hopped on. They said they learned more about Houston in 2 hours than they had known in their 10 previous trips for rodeo… nice way to get out and see Museums Districts, mansions in the wealthy parts of town, Medical and Downtown. Our driver Dan left us 3 blocks away from the stadium at the Pappas restaurant on Main Street, about a 3-4 minute walk to the rodeo gates

    Our guide suggested a restaurant that took over 2 hours to eat. Got us to the mansion 5 minutes late to tour, then we all waited 10 minutes while she bought a gift for her granddaughter.

    Excellent tour. Alan did a very personable job informing us about Houston. My husband and I were the only guests and the company kept the tour on.

    Absolutely recommend this tour! Vanessa was our tour guide, and she was great. She answered all questions our group had and provided great info. Not only did she provide reminders before & good info during the tour, she even provided helpful info after as well! Very helpful, friendly and I would absolutely recommend her.

    While this isn’t my first visit to Houston i always like to discover something new. And though i invest a lot of time in research and visit a LOT of restaurants (plus i’m a chef myself), i still like to visit places with locals. It gives you a different perspective. In this case of downtown area. Frankly I’ve been there before and my first inclination was always to leave it asap. Not so much with Rory. He is so passionate about the area, the food and his job, it was intoxicating ;-). He texted us beforehand making sure we got suitable clothing and everything (which is an amazing touch considering we are all adults). The tour started in front of incredible coffee shop where i had hands down THE BEST cinnamon roll in my entire life. After that we had amazing tacos, stopped at a bbq place, grocery store and vietnamese restaurant. There was some walking in between (definitely not a problem in my opinion!) which was good and lots of interesting facts and information. Rory also made a list with things to do/see/ visit for a meal or drink in Houston, which is an additional bonus. All in all this tour was an eye opener for me. I went to the places i would have normally totally ignored (sad to admit it) and more than that i’m definitely heading back and bringing my friends with me (who live in Houston btw and have never heard of those incredible eateries). It was a blast and very refreshing to see someone who is enjoying what he’s doing so much! In combination with all the gorgeous food we had it was the highlight of my trip. Definitely a must when in Houston!!!

    We had such a great time. Since we had a small group we were able to add on minutes. One of our group members did the virtual reality and we sooo wish we would've done that too. So cool. Definitely loved the option to go higher up. DO IT!! Such a fun time! We had teenagers and they loved it, but saw little kids doing this too. Also saw many different body types. This was worth the extra money for a family event.

    The employees are very welcoming upon arrival, makes you feel like home.
    The process to rent was simple and straightforward which is very convenient!
    As of the tour, it was an awesome experience driving through the open roads site seeing the country roads.
    Took family pictures at a park they have while on tour and it is an amazing scenery from the park to the tour!
    Houston Slingshot Rental is highly recommended!

    My family lives in the Houston suburbs and were hosting an out-of-town visitor. So we decided to book a city tour - figured we could always learn something new about the city. So glad we did. Our experience with Astroville Tours was a great mix of logistical smoothness, impressive knowledge and education, interesting sights, and disarming friendliness and helpfulness. Plus the van we went around in was so comfortable and clean. Am going to check out their other tours!

    We’ve done food tours in Savanah and Charleston, and the food here was better and LARGER sample sizes. It was the perfect date night idea for me and the misses. Would go back to each restaurant when I’m back in downtown. Pro tip: I was FULL as a dog by the end of the night cuz I hate a heavy lunch, no need to do that before this
