I and my wife were on vacation in Houston and decided to know more about the beautiful city. We almost missed the tour bus but thanks to the ladies at the office who made sure that everything went well. And how can we forget the ever cheerful Antonio, the driver/tour guide who made the whole tour a worthwhile experience. My wife’s favorite was the souvenir shop wher she was able to pick some handmade jewelries and of course the “ride”on the crafted horse.

The driver is a crack

The bus has nothing to do with the one in the photo, it is a minubus that has cut off the roof, it will have capacity for 20 people. Nor is it Hop-On Hop-Off, you get around you around Houston, about 90 minutes, and you get off, there's only one bus. However, the driver was the best, I was telling you at every moment where you were and the story of the place

We are 4 enjoyed it - it was fun and interesting

We are liked the tour, and although having lived in Houston for some time and doing it mainly for our visitors, we had a great time. The only two things I would say is: It should not be called a Hop-on-Hop-off bus because many travelers will expect a typical tour like in London, Rome, Toronto or SF, and it is more of a 90 minute tour. And it would be nice if they could extend the Museum District tour by additionally including a drive around Herrmann Park because that would give people a quick view of the MIller's Outdoor Theatre, McGovern Centennial Garden, the Houston Zoo. and Medical Center
