Nice hour and half tour of Galveston. Very informative. Funny guide. Pointed out landmarks and gave history of the town. Talked about Hurricane Ike. Whole family enjoyed it!

“A Quacking Good Time”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Really enjoyed our twilight tour of Galveston Island. Took us on the West side of island and out into Offatts Bayou for a short ride. Great narrator that quacked and waved at pedestrians along the way. Had taken the Treasure Island train tour in the a.m. which focuses more on the East side. Very little overlap, so if you want an overall history of the island take both. My group was divided on which was the best but everyone had a great time!

“Very Informative”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I grew up here, and ended up learning a couple of things about my hometown. Neat ride on the streets and in the bayou. Very informative narrative about the island. An enjoyable experience for the entire family.

“Family Fun”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great, informative, historical tour of the island. It was a lot of fun, even if it might have been a tad bit boring for younger children. They do love the transition to a boat and back to land though.
