The "Heart of the Tunnel Walk" was very nice and extremely interesting. I learned a lot about Houston downtown and our guide was amazing.

I'd heard about the downtown tunnels and had always wanted to check them out, so when the Groupon arrived in my inbox, I jumped at the opportunity. Sandra knew so much about everything we saw. It was a great time. Looking forward to trying the pub crawl next time!

My BFF and I did the Historic Downtown Pub Crawl on Saturday night, and it was a really fun and different Girls Night Out. Our guide was really informative... I've lived in the Houston area for most of my life, and didn't know any of the cool background of our downtown area, so it was really great to hear the stories she told.

Also the bars and pubs we went in were really unique. What fun! Yummy drinks at Char Bar, great atmosphere and football at Shay McElroy's, and cool decor at Notsuoh.

All the other people were very nice too, we made some great friends for the night.

Highly recommend doing this tour, whether you're a tourist, or a native Houstonian!

The tour started off fine, (excellent info about the tall building of Houston downtown) but we were disappointed in it because we got literally no historical information about Houston. The tour is 3 hours. 45 minutes is planned for lunch in a tunnel food court. 40 minutes is planned at the visitor's center, watching the free movie about Houston. The tour would be better as a 2 hour tour without a food court lunch and a visit to the visitor's center. (Which we had already been to.)

We would have liked more stories about the start of Houston, and especially stories about the early leaders. Being handed a brochure about 12 founding fathers is not what we had hoped for.
