This was such a fun city tour! I have lived outside of Houston for many years so it was neat to go on a tour and hear historical facts, and see unique landmarks and art work I would have never noticed on my own. Sarah was our guide and she was really kind and knowledgeable. I like how she customized the tour according to our interests. I will definitely plan another tour when I have guest come down to visit.

We had a great time. Sarah was excellent we went all over downtown took pictures learned about all the districts and loved it. Just the right amount of time.
