Best way to see Houston in a few hours. Houston is an enormous city and we wouldn’t have been able to explore the city the right way without this tour. There is something for everyone.When our bus tour started it was hot and humid and by the end of the tour the weather had dropped 25 degrees! Me and my family are so glad we did this tour that is air conditioned and with a roof to make our tour more enjoyable.Thank you Astroville Tours!

This has been the best bus tour hands down! I recommend this to anyone who visits Houston, even if this is not your first time visiting. Vanessa was incredible, very knowledgable, kind, funny. I learned a lot during the tour. She recommended us the best restaurants, gave us lots of tips and even took photos of us. Again I can’t recommend this tour enough. This is a must when visiting Houston.

The entire tour was very enjoyable. Our tour guide Vanessa and driver Luis were very knowledgeable and made the tour interactive. They made sure we had time to take pictures and Vanessa took our pictures as well. There was complimentary water and a stop at the Donut Shop. Vanessa also gave us suggestions on places to eat and see. We would highly recommend.

Relaxing and comfortable ride. It was just 5 of us and we had guide Vanessa all to ourselves; no children under 5 allowed apparently so usually will have an older crowd according to guide. The stops were wonderfully planed and the San Houston picture makes great as a memory! There was nonstop information being shared; extremely professional service.

Great tour and even better company. Loved the different neighborhoods and different elements of each district. Coming from California, never knew much about the medical district or theatre district. Was also impressed with museums and park residential area. Vehicle was clean and comfortable

Did this tour with my 2 sisters, we all enjoyed it. Definitely more fast paced and informational than other tours I’ve been on. We saw a ton of things and learned things about different parts of city that shocked us. The 2 hours really flew by!

This tour was fantastic. Great hospitality and appreciated they ran it despite only having 4 guests. There was more than enough space on the Mercedes van and the speaker quality made it easy to stay engaged throughout. Boy did we see a lot! Also our guide Vanessa who was so knowledgeable was generous to offer some great photo-ops for us. Last but not least, the snack spot was delicious and perfectly planned

Great city tour. Very informative and was certainly worth the nearly 2 hour drive with traffic. Vehicle (Mercedes Sprinter) was cool and comfortable, liked the driver followed safe driving habits and the tour guide Rachel was very detailed and funny. My wife and I really appreciated the doughnut shop stop as it gave us a chance to snack, use bathroom and unwind before seeing the Astrodome area. I would recommend this tour to any visitor of Houston who wants to see the most the city has to offer

Enjoyed this tour and learned TONS of interesting things about Houston that I had not known before doing. Really great for someone who has limited time in Houston but wants to see as much as possible!! Victoria and Louis weee tremendous guides and hooked it up with a nice snack as well. The sprinter was comfortable and windows were huge for taking photos. There also reserved stops where your guide offer photos of individual or group.

I’m a local Houstonian and found this tour both pleasurable and educational. The guide was exceptional and very knowledgeable about her city. We never knew about the amazing museums, federal reserve, and medical district history, and we absolutely loved the stop at the Museum of Fine arts offering a terrific vantage point of city and upclose look at Houston’s own famous art piece. Great way to learn about your own city in a comfortable and cool environment. All photos were included and sent after tour!!
