Fantastic Tour!
Andres_C, May 2022
Our tour guide, Vanessa was totally amazing! She was fun, outgoing and knowledgeable. Perfect tour to learn everything about downtown Houston and underground tunnels. Highly recommend.
Excellent tour a must do.
kenpkarenp, May 2022
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.
Great tour with a lot of information

Hello Jinyao, Thank you so much for sharing your awesome review! Our tunnel tour is very unique to Houston and most Houstonians have never heard of the secrets that are learned on tour. We hope you are having a wonderful time on your Southern trip!

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. Vanessa had a way of making everything interesting. It’s a must-see. We’ve been going to Houston for years and never even realized that the tunnels existed. We will go back and definitely bring our friends!
