Surprised how one can get around Houston using the tunnels underground. And the history of the buildings who owns sections of the tunnel is amazing too.

Cool view of hidden Houston
Lynne_W
, Jun 2022
This tour is very varied and Vanessa is a lively and knowledgeable guide. You get some sense of the scale of the massive tunnel network under the city but also get to see some amazing interiors of historic skyscrapers and modern classic architecture. There are quirky lifts and it's interesting to see the city's flood defences and damage caused in recent flooding. Vanessa takes and sends you some great photos of the group. And most of the tour is literally cool! Loved it.

Hello Lynne, We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Houston from England! This tour really is literally cool since we get to enjoy traveling through downtown in the tunnels. The buildings architecture (elevators included) are breath taking. Ya'll come visit us again real soon.

Vanessa was wonderful. Tons of knowledge and very fun! If anyone is concerned whether or not these kinds of tours are legit, no need to worry about this one. It was impressive how Vanessa knew every building's security guards, building managers, shop owners, etc... throughout the tour. You know you are in good hands when the people who run things greet her warmly everywhere you go!

We had a great time. Vanessa was very knowledgeable about Houston and the tunnels. We learned a lot and it was entertaining. She really went over and above expectations. She knew everyone's name and followed up after the tour by sending the pictures she snapped and text with tips on what other things to do in Houston. Be sure to pay attention, she talks fast. We highly recommend this tour.
