the cart that we drove around town was comfortable and the sights were readily visible. The driver was knowledgeable and able to answer questions. The itinerary was good and our guests from out of town saw nice swatch of Houston. The pace of the cart was slow enough to get a good look at buildings being described.

This was a valuable tour and good way to get to know downtown Houston and the surrounding areas. Our tour guide, Larry, was knowledgeable and enjoyable to be with. We learned a lot about the things we were looking at and about history of the area.

Who knew there was such a thriving environment below the streets of Houston. Our guide, Vanessa, was knowledgeable, personable, animated, and projected well. We had a great experience and loved learning about some of Houston's history.

Vanessa is a very knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and super helpful guide. It was a pleasure to have her leading our tour.

Vanessa was a wonderful tour guide! We had a great time and she was very knowledgeable.
