Arrived at around 9am to rent single kayaks for two people. A non employee stated he was covering for the employee that wasn't there, stated the service was suspended due to a 40% chance of storms after 12:00pm. Unfortunately, we weren't the only ones there trying to rent a kayak. Multiple people came in behind us. It is currently 3:30pm... More

We rented single kayaks and used the shuttle service which dropped us on Buffalo Bayou near Sabine Lofts (close to downtown). Be sure to bring a water bottle, sunscreen, clothes you don't mind getting wet and cash for tips. Bayou City Adventures will lend you a dry bag to put your phone or other water-sensitive items. Buffalo Bayou is beautiful.... More

We wanted to do something different. We did not expect to discover this unexplored side of Houston. It was very well organized. The tour picked us up downtown where we left the car. Took us to 610 and Woodway, where we loaded the tandem kayaks. The gentleman giving the lessons was quite annoying and with a sense of. let's say... More

We visited friend in Houston recently and went on the Houston Skyline Tour. Our group included four adults and five children. My observations are as follows: -One of the big draws of this tour was the idea of seeing the Houston Skyline. The Skyline does not become visible until the last quarter of the tour. During most of the tour... More

The Buffalo Bayou Shuttle is a great company for us to have in this city. We have taken their guided tour and also just used the shuttle service to move us and our own kayaks thru the bayou system. All around good...

We found out last time that you need to make a reservation. Otherwise you might have to wait a while for the shuttle to make... More

We have been wanting to take this tour for some time now, but every time nature didn't cooperate and thunderstorms cancelled our tour. We took the bike tour with their sister company and had a lot of fun, so we wanted to kayak. We finally got to take the tour after 3 times the weather cancelled it on us. I'm... More

Let me start by saying, my hubby and I are kayakers. We own them, we've kayaked in the ocean, on rivers and lakes. I tell you this to say that we can handle some paddling. Perhaps we were misled by the description of this tour. We believed it to be a leisurely tour down the bayou with historical info about... More
