Not just any Galveston History Tour! No one does it better than George Lee. He covers things that others leave uncovered, and does it in such a riveting way you'll be stuck like glue and yearning for more. His mastery of what his customers really want to learn is refreshing. His delivery is not only educational but hilariously comedic! You can even watch a History Channel aired documentary film about the 1900 storm, featuring Lee, at G. Lee Gallery. My family and I had a wonderful time. Don't miss this tour!

My husband, 12 yr. old daughter & myself had a wonderful time. There's nothing better than learning about history from a native who really loves his hometown and what he does. It was a breath of fresh air to be take a 'history class' and have lots of fun at the same time. Thank you George, you really enlightened us in a fun way and we can't wait to go back to Galveston and 'learn' some more....

George was so funny and entertaining! I loved the way he made history fun. We laughed the whole time and smiled for several hours afterward. Humor is great medicine! Don't miss this fun tour with George.
