"Our tour guide, Mike, was fantastic! I would definitely recommend him and Explore Houston to anyone! My wife and I had a wonderful evening."
"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."
