We found Cool Tours as a participant of the Island Pass (40% off) when you book at least 4 attractions in advance on-line. We called them from the Harbor house and they were so nice to pick us up in front of our hotel. We really enjoyed the air conditioned van, cold bottled waters and our great tour guide, Sue. Being a 5th generation BOI (Born on Island) she shared her own life long experiences living on the island as well stories from her parents/grandparents - the buildings and neighborhoods in Galveston are beautiful - Sue added the best part, the stories about the people that make Galveston their home!

Galveston has a long history and continues to build on that history. Cool Tours provide an AC equipped bus to show and describe in detail the most interesting parts of this interesting city. I am sure that any tour guide provided will give you an excellent tour but if you are lucky enough t get Sue you are in for a real treat. Sue is a very proud "BOI" (born on the island).
There is nothing about Galveston that this fun loving lady can't talk to you about in based on her personal experience.
Sue added so much to the visit my wife and I recently enjoyed. Steve the owner even went out of his way to pick us up at the Information Center. By the way going the Information Center is a must to get the most out of your trip.

This is a fun, educational tour of Galveston. Our driver, and guide, Sue made a delightful, informative tour filled with humor and stories. Highly recommend the tour and our guide.

I can't improve on Robert H's review. However Cool Tours goes the extra mile with all it's customers, they picked us up at Ashton Villa, which was perfect. And there is no better guide anywhere than Sue, they call her the Paula Deen of Galveston, she is so hospitable and funny.
( I hear she can cook too.) Don't miss this tour!!!!

I have been a tour guide myself in the San Francisco area, so I know a good tour. This tour was excellent. Also the AC was great to beat the summer heat.
It is amazing that there is so much to learn about Galveston in such a small area.
