Houston Urban Adventures

Day tours, with a local


Downtown is the heart of Houston, Texas’s largest city. We love our seven-mile, air-conditioned Tunnel System; our Visitors Center – one of the largest in the U.S.; our Theater District, featuring all the performing arts in one walkable area; our stadiums, offering baseball, basketball, and soccer. We love green, from our free Greenlink Connector shuttle to our LEED-certified skyscrapers to our parks. And we love to eat out more than anyone in the U.S., savoring BBQ to Bombay pizza, fajitas to feta, and sushi to salads. We’d love to say “howdy” to you, so join us on an Urban Adventure and find out why Texas means Friendly.

Mike did an outstanding job on our Pub Tour. He made history come alive...and also had several great ghost stories. We'd recommend this Tour to any other Yankees who're visiting Houston for the first time.

The tour guide, Mike, made this tour a fun and memorable experience for my boyfriend and I. He was friendly and knowledgable and he made a point to initiate conversations with every one in the group, which was almost 25 people! I will recommend Urban Adventures and will definitely do a tour again!
