There was some confusion on the meeting point for this tour. The address given is the Hilton but the actual meeting place is on the corner of the street. The other 2 people waiting with us were also unsure of where to wait.
the tour itself was some commentary as we drove around Houston and then we were dropped at NASA to make our own way around. This was fine as our tour guide explained where to go and the centre itself was very interesting. We were picked up on time and dropped back to our pick-up point. Great way to get to NASA if you don't have your own transport or just want someone else to drive.
A great tour. We only had one full day in Houston so it was good to get an orientation of the city and the guide was very informative. Comfortable shuttle ride to NASA and the 4 hours they allow you there was perfect. I recommend this tour.
The city tour was most informative and very helpful. It was great to actually go on the shuttle!
The tour of Houston was fine - but the NASA experience was sensational - we saw the ISS Mission Control, a film about Orion plans for the trip to Mars, touched a moon rock and actually entered a space shuttle - utterly brilliant
Out of this world... :- Very impressive, a must visit if you are ever in Houston.
Houston City Pass is really worth to buy! especially because there no time limit, so you can use one coupon today, another tomorrow... etc . We use it all - every coupon! Its great transportation in downtown, so be went by bus and train everywhere!
We hit Museum of Natural History - beautiful place, with awesome dinosaur skeletons and even a famous Rosetta stone! And located next to an awesome park with lake boat rides and great train ride for kids!
Children's Museum - oh, what a wonderful place, with almost gravity-defying climbing construction, room for make all kinds of projects and check if they work - like, put parachutes in air tunnel and watch them fly! Or make and start a rocket! Or program a real robot!
Interesting for little kiddies too - they can enjoy shopping in store or go to the bank and use real ATM card!
And of course they will enjoy yard where they can play with water and boats!
Aquarium - wow, all day fun for one price -train, carousels, ferris wheel, etc - and when you done there, you can take horse carriage ride thru downtown skyscrapers back to the hotel!
Located by the river, so you can take peaceful walk by the water, too..
Space Center - you can see real spaceships and even get in! Touch the history! Take pics! Just make sure you come early and not in rain so you can take that ride around Space center facility, and, if you taking bus to go to the Space center - do it on weekday, buses didn't work on weekends, but I really recommend go there by bus - it was fun ride, because for some reason road there slightly narrow and bumpy in few spots.. Also there for extra price couple of interesting machines what can help you enjoy flight in airplane or even in shuttle!
Only one thing was disappointing - there no bus to the beach or Kemah... and when we went to Galveston by Uber, we have an awesome time on the beach, which has nice mild sand and very warm water, and then we have nice lunch in Golden Corral right by the beach - and it was truly amazing menu in GC on Galveston - but when we try to get back from Galveston to the Houston, we stuck there, because it comes out Uber don't pick up travelers from Galveston - because Galveston administration banned Uber from Galveston, and if you go there by Uber, then you'll have to take taxi for the way back... which can result in around 140 one way - 3 times more than Uber... so better rent a car if you want hit the beach!
Zoo is great in Houston - its on edge of that beautiful park, close to Naturel History Museum, and zoo even have Red Panda and golden monkey! We see some funny ducks with ducklings walking around the zoo... And zoo has spotted African dogs! And great water playground for little kiddies - so don't forget swimsuit and towel!
Doing what: Houston CityPass
Our guide on the city tour did an excellent job - entertaining, good volume, and easy to hear and understand. NASA was an amazing place to visit and ranks right up there with our visits to Cape Canaveral and Sky City outside of Moscow. Children ages 10 and up can really appreciate it.
AMAZING!! The tour started out with a tour of Downtown Houston, and it's surrounding area for 90 minutes. Next, we were taken to the space center...which was the best part of the whole tour! I learned so much from the center, and would recommend this tour for all ages.
Very knowledgable tour guide on the city tour. Space centre was amazing too however the food there was terrible. Great trip though
Great tour of the city's architecture and history, and the included ticket and ride to the space center is well worth it. The space center is FANATASTIC! Definitely do the tram tour I did the training center tour, though I'm sure both are really cool. Saw a talk by a former astronaut on the Discovery missions, and many other things. Despite knowing a lot about space and the program, I definitely learned some things and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Nice trip, learn alot about NASA.
the both tours were really good and inforsemative . the directions for the pick up point were a bit confusing but otherwise a great day and value for money
I loved this tour. The city tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Houston and was very funny. After the city tour we were sent on another shuttle and driven out to the space center and had approximately 4 hours to explore on our own. The driver then picked us up when he said he would and took us back into the city. It was coordinated very well.
Very friendly and knowlegable tour guides.
A really interesting time spent at the Houston space centre well worth it!
Very informative....enjoyed it!
Excellent trip very organised getting there
We had a wonderful time! I've lived here for 17 years and my guest was visiting from Malaysia, we both really enjoyed the tour. I learned things about Houston that I didn't know. The double decker bus tour was great, as was the Space Center.
Excellent and informative. Highly recommend
