Reservamos el tour en español y lo hemos tenido en inglés. El tour es muy completo y la guía muy agradable, pero nos hemos perdido la mitad de las explicaciones
We were sold a 2-hour tour and were given a lackluster tour of one hour.
Meeting place they said was not right, when we called to ask where’s the bus they told us they do not stop at the motel and to come to Dallas st. When we got to there visitor center of there business they said no one told us about the bus stoping at the motel. It wasn’t the double decker bus like they said it would be, it was a bus with no roof and no ac so being in Texas you could probably only in joy it in January. The “only” good thing about the tour was the Spanish tour guy hes really good at his job and made the blistering sun little less blistering
Lower level beat up, closed windows, no a/c air, up top branches scrapped passengers, prerecorded narration didn't align with timing of sight locations. Not hop on, hop off as advertised, instead 90 min run. Also site start, 3 different locations, Marquis, America's, versus Tour Center. Misleading coffee shop front with small sign in back.

The tour duration was one hour. Basically building/towers tour So much more could have been done The price is too high for the product offered
The website said to meet in one location & upon receiving the voucher, it gave me another meeting spot at the Mariott Marqui, so I went there. After 20 min, the bus hadn't come, so I called the company. The associate, Sandra, kept cutting me off & kept saying "the tour is booked" without asking what tour we were apart of & she declined us to meet up with the rest of the tour/said there was not space for us on the 2 other tours that day. She kept cutting me off & said "the bus drove by, didnt see anyone, so they kept going" so I asked to speak to a manager in which she gave me emails to Antonio and Carmen, who I emailed the same day, requesting my money back since "the bus drove by & didn't see anyone so they kept going" when me and my friend were waiting there & no one ever came. She said the Marqui was the wrong meeting place and when I asked why it said that on the voucher, all she could say "it was the wrong meeting point". It's been 8 days & the 2 managers still haven't responded.
I would recommend this experience to anyone. Well worth the money. Bravo to the speaking guide and driver.
We took a Monday morning two-hour tour. Our driver/narrator was certainly well versed on the history of the city, the major buildings, etc. We made a couple of stops for photo ops. All in all we enjoyed the tour and the price was reasonable.
I thought I was going on a double decker bus not a van. I was sitting on the outside seat two from the back the exhaust fume were overbearing particularly when stoped. If I knew my way around I would have got off well before the tour finished
Interesting and informative
Although we had to wait 30 minutes for the bus to arrive, the rest of the trip was very good and the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Tour was postponed for a day, due to rain which is fine, but then showed up 20nins late on the rescheduled date and the seats were wet. Not a hop on , hop off service as is the case in Europe but rather a guided tour round the sitting, this would be fine for the elderly, but if yiu wanted to longer at some of the sites you cant
Very good enjoyed
Our guide Antonio was great, despite the rainy weather; it was a great experience and learned a lot about Houston. If you are able also do the tunnel tour... great company
The tour guide was fantastic! a short glimpse of Houston and its history.
It took us to all the places of interest to enable us to choose which we could visit.
We learned and saw a great deal of Houston. Unfortunately, we didn't receive our tickets in a timely manner (which may be partly my fault). Anyway, we missed our original connection because our ticket came to us after our slotted time and had a difficult time catching up with the bus.
