Overview
Experience both the Lone Star State’s bustling modern and quaint historic sides with this tour of contemporary Houston and storied Galveston on the Gulf of Mexico. Explore downtown Houston by double-decker bus before setting off to admire the Victorian mansions and Strand district in Galveston.

The tour of Houston was very informative !! Lots of fun da ya about the city . The ride to Galveston was disappointing . There was only one hour of sightseeing , not even in a fun area of the town like the pier or Gulf of Mexico .. and not really enough time to eat anywhere .

Thank you for your review and we're glad you enjoyed our city tour. We try our best to incorporate the most important and historical aspects of Galveston while still giving our guest a great amount of free time to explore and eat lunch when giving our tours.
