In the morning, make your own way downtown to meet your double-decker bus for a fully-narrated sightseeing tour of Houston’s most iconic sites. Your 90-minute tour by open-top bus passes by City Hall, Chase Tower, Minute Maid Park—home of the Houston Astros baseball team, Houston’s Museum District, Hermann Park and more.

After touring central Houston with your knowledgeable guide, transfer to a comfortable coach that takes you on a 50-minute drive to reach Galveston, a historic town located on the Gulf of Mexico.

Nicknamed Oleander City, Galveston features miles of white-sand beaches, seaside restaurants, specialty shops and a fascinating history. More than 60 structures of architectural significance are spread among its six historic districts. Your coach passes one of the most famous buildings, a stunning Victorian mansion called the Bishop's Palace, aka Gresham's Castle.

During your time in Galveston, enjoy close to three hours on your own to explore. You can purchase lunch in the historic Galveston Strand district then stroll the shops and soak in the small town’s ambiance. Visit the Galveston Seawall, a 10-mile levee with breathtaking views of Galveston Bay. If you would like to take a dolphin-watching tour on Galveston Bay, your guide can provide you with complimentary tickets for the boat.

At the designated time, simply meet your guide to reboard your coach for the return trip to Houston.

Throughout the day, learn from the informative commentary provided by your guide while a professional driver handles the navigation. You get to relax as you see iconic sites and learn about the history of Houston, Galveston and Texas during a fascinating 6-hour tour.

When you arrive back in Houston, your coach returns you to the Convention Center where your tour ends.

Customer Reviews

We really enjoyed both parts of the tour. Firstly the tour of Houston was excellent with a great guide who was interesting and courteous to all guests. Secondly we went to Galveston and had a wonderful afternoon with a super tour guide who went out of her way to look after us all. We particularly enjoyed the castle museum. Thanks.
