Good tour that lets you get the feel of the layout of the island. Spends a good bit of time on old houses and history of the island. Quite quiet at times,but don't let that put you off.

This place was hit hard by the flooding, and they deserve your support. Granted, they are no longer what they once were, but they are rebuilding. We enjoyed our visit and felt good helping them out with a few bucks.

A typical tourist attraction, but a fun way to see the highlights of the Island and feel like you're on vacation.

An excellent, relaxing & interesting ride thru the city. Focused mostly on old houses, their history, & the history of Galveston. One small criticism; they need to update their cassette tape to CD. The tape is very old; sort of hard to hear because of...More

9:30, 1200 and 2:30 daily. We must have a minimum of 6 people to operate(not just in your group, just total) And we cannot tour in the rain since it is an open air tour.
