4 star rating: Recommended April 2016

The guide was very well informed and very interesting. He was also interested in us. I would suggest that it be much clearer as to where you get the tour. We had no idea and were at the Convention Center. We called and were told to go outside of the Hilton. That is not where the tour picked us up. We just saw the bus on the street and waved it down.

Our guide was very interesting. The tour included many landmarks in downtown Houston and around the Medical Center and Rice University. I plan to go on the same tour again.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better March 2016

The tour isn't really a hop on hop off, just a 90 minute bus ride that takes you to some of the key districts in Houstons, however you don't get the opportunity to get off the bus. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2015

The tour pick-up points was so confusing as not a single sign is posted and calling the local agent was no help at all. The total tour hours over-all doesn't give you enough time to do the Hop-on/Hop-off.

The driver had a lot of local knowledge, but the tour was short and only operated a couple of times in the day for the cost.. ok to do with out getting off..
I probably wouldn't go on it again if I went back to Houston.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2015

Bus was old and smelled strongly of exhaust fumes. There was a moist towel on the rear seat near me used to sop up water from a leaky window I'd guess. Speaker system was poor, I couldn't understand much of what the guide was saying. Not worth half the price of the tour. 'll
