  • Delighted with the tour, My guide was informative, friendly and outgoing. I learned a great deal about the city from this tour and would recommend it to other first-time visitors to the city.

  • It's ok, but was not to impressed.

  • Great trip. Guide was very knowledgeable.

  • Great trip. Guide was very knowledgeable.

  • We enjoyed this tour very much, especially the history and architecture portions.

  • Our tour guide was great! He was very knowledgeable about the area, with history and architecture. We were just not impressed with the tunnels themselves. we thought they were not going to be so modernized. so I was just change the language of the description.

  • We are 73 years old and have lived in Houston most of our lives, so I questioned how much this tour would be of interest to me. I was amazed at Mike, our tour guide's knowledge. Mike opened my eyes to Many interesting historical facts that are not well-known and are difficult to uncover. I now have a new appreciation for my city. I WILL use Urban Adventures again. In fact my wife is arranging for our kids and their group of 12 friends two go with Mike on his Pub Crawl and we are working on a shortened version of the underground tunnel tour for our travel group of 25 seniors.
    Good job, Mike!

  • Such a great experience!! I honestly thought this was going to be really different but it really was even better than I expected! Our tourist was really funny and nice as well and provided us with lots of information also he was nice enough to take me and my boyfriend a panoramic picture infront of one of the buildings

  • I have done simular tours in different cities like the pizza tour, little Italy, China town, Beer tour. I was dissappointed in the tour as it was only 1 hour and 20 minutes with a 20 minute break. It started off very interesting and then not much at all.

  • This tour was very enjoyable and I learned a lot about the tunnel system and some of the history of Houston. However, one of the main parts of the tour was Chase Tower and going to the top for the view. The tower was restricted to tourists and we were unable to go into the Tower. Our tour guide said that the tour company had notified Viator on numerous occasions to change the description for the tour on the Viator website. The unavailability of the Chase Tower portion shortened the time of the tour quite a bit. But, other than that, I did enjoy the rest of the tour.
