Vanessa was an excellent tour guide- knowledgeable, exuberant and clearly ingrained with the underground culture. She went above and beyond to take pictures, provide recommendations and give great context to what we were seeing. I look forward to bringing more Houston visitors on her tour!

Greg was fantastic. We took this tour on an “off day” from MD-Anderson care. The hotel pick up was easy and we had a ball- especially looking at the lavish homes in River Oaks. Greg was so informative and he gave a great city overview and tips so we know what to do on a return trip. He was 10 stars! Highly recommend!!!

2 Hour - Sightseeing Through Tinted Windows
Pamela_M
, Mar 2021
We were picked up from a downtown parking lot with a low payment of $4.00. We were told to be there at 12:00 for pickup. We texted the site to let them know we were there, we received a response saying " the van will pick you up at 12:00. The driver was friendly and well informed of the history and landmarks of the city. We did not know we the van with tinted windows was the vehicle responsible for taking us on the tour. We actually just took a ride around the city for two hours. He never stopped to allow us to get out to take pictures of any of the sites, we could only see the sites through the tinted windows.

Thank you for the feedback Pamela! We're happy you were setup with good parking accommodations for the tour, got to see all the great landmarks, attractions and got informative commentary about their history. We are a Houston based limousine company operating in Houston since 2009 so we do not have big open top buses that get our guest rained on, sun burned, cold or smacked with tree branches. "As stated in the description of the tour you booked" we offer exterior drive by views of landmarks and attractions. Allowing a photo shoot at each of the multiple locations we visit would add at least an additional hour to tour which we dont want to charge guest who are not interested in getting out to be charged for. Instead we offer brochures and commentary for the locations so they can be visited after tour if desired. We also offer guest option of being dropped off at locations of interest after the tour as opposed to returning to start point. Currently there are no tour companies in Houston that allow guest to get out for photos at each location but we're glad you enjoyed what we do provide. It was our pleasure serving you and we thank you for visiting Houston!
