We had a great time. Vanessa was very knowledgeable about Houston and the tunnels. We learned a lot and it was entertaining. She really went over and above expectations. She knew everyone's name and followed up after the tour by sending the pictures she snapped and text with tips on what other things to do in Houston. Be sure to pay attention, she talks fast. We highly recommend this tour.

We love everything about the tour. The tunnel was new to us. Awesome place! Vanessa was the best tour guide ever! She was very knowledgeable. The tour was never boring.

As someone who has lived in Houston for over 40 years I was amazed at how much I didn't know. And I also really enjoyed seeing all the old architecture left inside the buildings there. And our guide, Vanessa, was phenomenal! I will definitely be recommending this to others!

Vanessa was a great tour guide. She messaged before the tour, kept showing us interesting additional information on her phone, volunteered to take pics, and sent us recommendations of other sites after the tour. She followed COVID precautions and I noticed her sanitizing her hands often. The tour itself was interesting. It was great getting more history about the tunnels and famous buildings in the city.
