Overview

Walking through the streets of Houston is pretty special but did you know that there is a whole underground system of tunnels below the city? This Houston tour will take you through the city, over and underground, until you get to know the city from every angle.
  • Discover Houston's underground Tunnel System with a local guide
  • Explore the newest and oldest tunnel sections that are open to the public
  • Learn about the history of Houston through its architecture and art
  • See beautiful art deco treasures and sculptures by world-famous artists and learn how Houston’s 7 miles of pedestrian tunnels came to be

You’ll meet your local guide and begin your Houston tour with a walk down Main Street towards the Chase Bank Building, which features eight frescoes depicting Texas history. With your local guide to explain these pieces, you’ll gain a greater understanding of the history of the city and state alike. From here, we’ll enter the Downtown Houston Tunnel System and walk over to Chase Tower, the tallest building in Texas. Your guide will lead you outside for a photo op in front of Joan Miro’s 1982 Personage and Birds.

Next on this historical Houston tour, you’ll cross the street and enter Philip Johnson’s award-winning Pennzoil Place. You’ll ride an escalator down to the tunnel where you’ll get a sweet treat at a unique boutique bakery with some of the best cookies in Houston.

Finish your Houston tour by walking through downtown’s oldest and newest tunnels, and see the only remaining portion of a 1913 hotel known as “The Cotton” before returning to Café Express with your guide.

Our tour guide was great! He was very knowledgeable about the area, with history and architecture. We were just not impressed with the tunnels themselves. we thought they were not going to be so modernized. so I was just change the language of the description.

We are 73 years old and have lived in Houston most of our lives, so I questioned how much this tour would be of interest to me. I was amazed at Mike, our tour guide's knowledge. Mike opened my eyes to Many interesting historical facts that are not well-known and are difficult to uncover. I now have a new appreciation for my city. I WILL use Urban Adventures again. In fact my wife is arranging for our kids and their group of 12 friends two go with Mike on his Pub Crawl and we are working on a shortened version of the underground tunnel tour for our travel group of 25 seniors.
Good job, Mike!

I have done simular tours in different cities like the pizza tour, little Italy, China town, Beer tour. I was dissappointed in the tour as it was only 1 hour and 20 minutes with a 20 minute break. It started off very interesting and then not much at all.
