Full description

Embark on a guided day tour to the city of Galveston, a charming Southern retreat just 50 miles from Houston. Discover a destination full of art, historic architecture, chic boutiques, and ghostly legends - all tucked within a quaint Gulf Coast barrier island. Depart Houston by minivan and hear about the stories that formed the city from your guide. Upon arrival, get a closer look at Galveston’s history on a sightseeing tour through the city center with your guide. Stroll down Broadway Street, stop at Moody Mansion, and see historic Lucas Terrace.

Arrive at Galveston Historic Seaport, and visit the tall ship, Elissa, with admission included. A designated National Historic Landmark, it is one of the world's oldest sailboats in operation. Learn more about immigration to the United States as well as more about Galveston's maritime history.

Next, take your harbor cruise departing from the port. See ships and seabirds, dolphins and drilling rigs on this hour-long cruise. Afterwards, benefit from some free time to grab some lunch or to stroll on the beach. Afterward, meet with your guide and return to Houston.
