We have been dong the train tour for years, Bery informative and we learn something new each visit. The "train" engine is now a jeep....it used to be a jeep that was made to look like a small locomotive. Kids really used to like that.

The tour is fun, informative, and we all came away with a new appreciation of Galveston, We are not new to Galveston. But, the tour took us to places in Galveston we had never previously visited. And, we learned more about what we had known about the island. It was a great way to spend an hour and a half.

Narrator was very informative of the historical aspects during our morning tour. Threw in a little humor which kept the tour light and fun. When showing us the remaining piling from the Balinese Room that was destroyed during hurricane Ike, he said there was also a Hooter's pier. He is still waiting for them to commemorate that loss! Great time. 9and 11 year olds got a little bored but roughed it out!

Have done this in other cities and enjoyed, this was great as well, except for the 9 yrs old with us. Good price $10 for adults and $5 for kids so very reasonable and it last 1 1/2. We had very nice tour guide and got lots if facts and saw lots of the homes that have survived all the hurricanes though out the years. I enjoyed it very much we went to the 9:30 trip and arrived about 30 mins early. Plenty of time for us to park and get there. We were able to just park along seawall since early but later in day it will be full. Had FUN!!!
