Very interesting guided tour. Guide was a bit late, but that was no problem in the end as we got some basic history and overview of Houston. Fascinating city.
The history of the buildings and tunnels was very interesting. The view from Chase Tower was awesome.
I learned so much about certain houston buildings and discovered all the wonderful tunnels too. Great experience!

Who would have guessed there are 7 miles of tunnels (but more like an underground connector, people connector and shops/restaurants to support the high rise buildings in downtown Houston. The architecture in each building is quite different and our guide described the differences as we walked underground through part of the tunnels. Since the tour, we talked to many people from the Houston area on a cruise that had heard of the tunnels, but never visited.
One temporary downside to the tour, the Chase Skylobby with aerial views of the city, has been closed for renovation for several months.
The two tour guides were very well educated and complimented each other well. Got a lot of good history of the city, enjoyed tunnels. Was a little disappointed that we could not go up to the sky lobby as if was closed. Only drawback is that the description talks about entry fees being included, and I was a little disappointed to find out that was because they don't actually take you anywhere that requires entry fees.
Had a Great Time!
Very knowledgable tour guides and interesting subject matter make this is a much-do tour for visitors and natives alike. Something for everyone and guides are quick to adjust to the interests of the group. Highly recommend.
Great fun if you like a little history. There's a lot more to downtown Houston than concrete.
Enjoyed the history, exploring the tunnel system and the heights of the Chase tower! Sandra is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her tour and Houston - hard not to love the city being around her!
Our tour was very enjoyable. Our tour guide was very informative, professional, and pleasant. We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn and see more of downtown Houston
Guide knew lots of information and told it to us in an interseting way.
The tour was more informative and interesting than I expected. Mike, our tour guide, provided a lot of historical context to what we were seeing and was good at answering questions. I only wish the tour spent more time on discussing the notable landmarks we visited and less time in the stores and gift shops. For example, I would've liked to know more about the history of the art-deco city hall building and Tranquility Park across the street, and could've spent less time at the city visitor center gift shop.
This tour was very enjoyable and I learned a lot about the tunnel system and some of the history of Houston. However, one of the main parts of the tour was Chase Tower and going to the top for the view. The tower was restricted to tourists and we were unable to go into the Tower. Our tour guide said that the tour company had notified Viator on numerous occasions to change the description for the tour on the Viator website. The unavailability of the Chase Tower portion shortened the time of the tour quite a bit. But, other than that, I did enjoy the rest of the tour.
it was very good ,chase tower was excluded which I did not know otherwise underground tunnel was amazing ,tour guide was very nice
This tour was good - the view from the Chase Tower was amazing and the Underground Tunnels were pretty cool.
