Gregg was an amazing tour guide! His prompt, pleasant and expansive knowledge of Houston made all the difference in the experience we had in Houston on our 1st visit! He gave us just enough that had us wanting to come back and explore another time! Until next time Houston!

In four hours we were able to see all the major places/buildings in Houston. Much easier to have our hands free and be able to look than to have to deal with traffic and try to follow directions!

Masako H, Aug 2016
The driver/guide was nice. Our luggage was missing when we arrived in Houston. Since this was a private tour, the driver/guide took us to Ross and a gift shop to buy necessary clothes. Sightseeing tour part was fun, too. Again, this was a private tour, so we were able to ride a pedal boat. We could request what we wanted to do. That was the best part.
