Houston Urban Adventures’ historically buffed guides lead walking tours of the downtown area’s most notable sites, imparting tidbits about each destination and local legends. Groups of two and four link arms with fellow tour-goers for three hours of urban exploration, and groups of 12 commandeer private tours. Heart of the Tunnel walks kick off at The Lancaster Hotel, and then moves to the Chase Tower, where the group rides the elevator to the 60th floor for sky-lobby-photo opportunities and independent debunking of the earth’s supposed curvature. The tour goes from skyscraping to subterranean locales as the group heads into the tunnel system on its way to the 1929 Chase Building. Additional stops include a stained-glass window depicting the Battle of San Jacinto in the Chase Building, Houston City Hall’s visitors center, an underground food court for a bite, and Pennzoil Place.

Suds-seekers can opt for a historic downtown pub crawl, beginning at Georgia’s Market on Main Street. The guide will regale guests with Houston’s early history, including its formative years living abroad, as they stop at four pubs and bars.

Customer Reviews

We had a great time last night with Karinda. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic. The tour ran long, but everyone had a great time, and we all felt we got the personal attention we wanted. Our favorite stop was the end of the night at the Icon Hotel. Would suggest providing the tour host with some wardrobe guidelines for a more professional feel to the tour. Will recommend your tour to others!
