Being able to get on and off. It gave me time to stretch and take photos. The paintings the city had on the walls were amazing.

Beautiful city! My experience was seamless. Bought a ticket 2 hours before the tour, showed up and checked in quickly. I was a little worried because my bus, unlike all the buses in the photos, did NOT have a inside/downstairs option and I booked on a cold day. But, the sun came out as we started the tour and it was dry and warm enough. And sitting inside, you wouldn't be able to see the amazing architecture of Houston! That was maybe my favorite part of the tour. The music was good. We had a short (5min-ish) stop at the Graffiti Park to get out and take photos. It's not hop on/hop off. I'm so happy I took this tour. I learned a lot about Houston I never would have known and it inspired me to get out and see more of this beautiful city. I would not recommend sitting downstairs/inside because you just don't get the views/experience, so dress for the weather.

Tour was great. Very knowledgeable gentleman (I wish I remembered his name) definitely knew the history of Houston while injecting some humor at just the right time. Took an interest in where his guests were from. Thank you.

Good explanations during the trip. Houston does not have a lot of historical buildings so do it expect a lot of history but the new architecture and the economic activity is reflected in the new Downtown area
