The next stop, Market Square Park, is surrounded by bars and pubs nestled inside historic buildings. Some of these establishments include La Carafe, the Hearsay Gastro Lounge, Char-Bar, Warrens Inn, and Market Square Bar & Grill, whose founder says, Its every Texans right to hold a burger in one hand and a beer in the other.

"I went on this tour with my dad. We really had a great time together. However, I'd like the tour to move a swifter pace or maybe some itinery would have been provided so that we knew how long we would be at each location."

"The experience was a delight. Our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and articulate. As a local, I did not think I was going to get much out of this tour, but was pleasantly surprised. The only issue I had was that when I was booking the tour, I was made to feel that we should not have booked on the night requested because there was only 2 of us. If your company prefers it that way, might I suggest you put it on the website, or tell the couple that night is not available. Other than that, everything was amazing."

"I enjoyed the experience because the group I was with was a lot of fun. Our guide Kerenda was very nice, but very hard to understand because of her soft spoken nature. Great fun, but it was because we made the best of it."
