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.
Listen to tales of murder, gambling, brothels, and ghosts in the old town of Houston as you visit unique pubs around Market Square Park. See sparkling chandeliers, select songs on old-fashioned jukeboxes, or talk to a tailor as you sip wine, beer, and designer cocktails inside buildings dating from 1861-1934.more...

23 May 2013 Downtown Houston rocks! Michael was at his best May 17th! His personality shined with the level of enthusiasm that capped the evening. We were sorry our friends could not join us...their loss...but we made four new friends from Pearland, Katy and Cypress(five, including Michael). The facts and details were terrific...a memorable evening, and one of the nicest evenings to be on the streets of downtown Houston. It's nice to get an update of its revitalization, especially with Super Bowl LI now on the horizon.... Michael, thank you for sharing your favorite secret place with us...can't wait to return and hope we bump into you on the street!
22 May 2013 Had a great time and would definitely recommend.
21 May 2013 The Tunnel Tour was very good & enjoyable, & Ron was very knowledgable. I saw little point in stopping for lunch, as the Tour ended 15 minutes later. I guess it gives the restaurants business.
08 May 2013 Mike was our tour guide & we couldn't have asked for a better one! He helped us have a blast! It was a wonderful night for many! Thanks Mike!
30 Apr 2013 we loved our guide (maybe ray or roy...it was a pace that was very comfortable, we were not rushed...and what a pleasant surprise that we were all called by our first names
