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.

Houston, we have a problem: there are just too many good pubs in your city. Join this Houston tour to visit a pub with an old-school jukebox, a bar that trades as a tailor shop by day, a watering hole in an 1800's gambling parlor, and a bar that features features pinball and pool. Fun guaranteed; hangovers optional.

We not only had fun, but we learned a lot about Houston's history during our downtown bar tour. There are many very cool bars and buildings that we'll visit again, and we highly recommend this tour!

Mike did an awesome job of explaining and sharing Houston's culture and the tunnel experience. I enjoyed it so much that I plan on bringing my grandkids to take the tour when they visit this summer.

I really liked the leisurely pace which allowed us to investigate the farmer's market while outside. I found it easy to ask any question that popped into my head and I feel comfortable exploring the tunnel system on my own now.

Probably would have been better with more people (only 4 people in our party) but I know that was beyond your control.

Mike was an amazing guide! I learned so much from this tour that I had never known before...and I am a born and raised Houstonian! Mike was also very friendly and personable. This was my second time on the pub tour! I loved it the first time so much that I had to bring my friend with me for a second time.
