What people are saying about Toyota Center, Houston

Julie and Rich were a superb team accommodating our family of 6 including my elderly parents. It was relaxing running the tour just with our group. We had the clean Mercedes van to ourselves, felt comfortable asking questions and didn't feel rushed on any of our tour stops. They both provided excellent information about the city and basically had a powerpoint presenter to help us understand what we were looking at. Our driver Rich was safe and made us feel at ease in a big city. We even got some great photos with the Houston monuments by the park that reminded me of Washington DC and a Observatory garden. I would 100% do any tour with these guides again

Had an Amazing time. Tour guide was very informative and helpful. Overall the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bus did squeak quite a bit due to braking so that's the only negative I have. Definitely will book again for other tours offered. Amazing

A must if you are in Houston. Very personalized, due to the small group bookings. Vanessa and Luis are a great team, very professional. The tour provides a diverse opportunity to see the many aspects of Houston.

The tour was great. Vanessa knew her stuff, answered all our questions. Luis joined in from the drivers seat. It was a really enjoyable and informative afternoon.

Very good activity for our long layover in Houston!!
