Even though my husband and I were the only ones on the tour, Joseph Pellerin still took us on the tour. He is very knowledgable about the history of the island and answered our questions in addition to giving us great information. We were able to take some photos, but without stopping, they were not all that good. We are both mobility challenged and he helped us into and out of the van using a footstool. This was very much worth doing.

Tour was only 45 minutes. My 11 year old wasbored by it. The van was filthy inside. Make sure to be utd on your tetanus shot. Guide (which I think was owner) talked very fast. He should give time for questions after each "landmark" Would not recommend because of the above. Wear clothes you dont care if they get stained by the filth in the can. Mr. Owner, slow down so people can absorb the history

From Our Editors

Galveston is a skinny barrier island off the coast of southeast Texas, but there's a lot of history packed into its small square-footage. There's the fully-restored downtown area, for starters, which was once a bustling cotton-trade district dubbed "The Wall Street of the Southwest", but now boasts a slew of popular shops and restaurants. Or the stunning East End, where visitors can marvel at the meticulously maintained Victorian mansions that were once private residences, but now house museums.

You can learn more about the history of the isle on a guided excursion from Galveston Historic Tours. The fleet of 14 passenger climate control van embarks on several sightseeing tours per day, rain or shine, taking riders past some of Galveston's most notable attractions, including the East End Historic District, the estates known as the "Broadway Beauties," and the Strand, the island's commercial center. Along the way, tour guide and owner Joseph R. Pellerin relays anecdotes, facts, and humorous limericks about the sights, relying on his professional expertise—he's an American history professor with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in history—as well as his own personal pedigree: he's a third-generation Galvestonian who was born on the island.
