“A must for island visitors!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Let me tell you the one name you need to know in Galveston... SUE! She was our guide on our tour of the island and she is absolutely a treasure! She took us around and showed us things we would have never found on our own. We learned so much about the island in the short time we spent with her. Even though we have taken the tour once... we will take it again when we are on the island. If you want to get your mind blown with history and humor... this is an absolute must people. We even got a free map that was by far the best one we could find... we used it the whole time we were there.

“Cool Tours - A must do in Galveston”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

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!

“See and learn Galveston”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

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.

“the most fun in Galveston”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

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!!!!
