Overview

Houston, we have a problem: there are just too many good pubs in our city.

  • Stop by four local bars located in some of the city's oldest buildings

Fun pub tour

, Oct 2019
Our pub tour in the older part of downtown Houston was quite interesting. Our guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable about the four locations visited. Even as 44 year residents of the Houston area, we learned fun facts. Be aware that drinks are not included, but each location had reasonable prices....and clean restrooms!

Highly recommend the pub tour. Mike our tour guide was excellent felt like we were visiting family. Learned a lot of history while enjoying local libations at 4 very interesting pubs. We only had a day and half in Houston so had to pack in as much as we could in a short amount of time, very glad we did this. Absolutely the highlight of the trip.

This tour was ok Mike the guide was pleasant enough but compared to other bar walking tours we had done this did nt rate so highly for us... Between 6-30 pm and 9-30 pm it would have been good to have had an oppertunity to get some food on the way not enough history from guide either.

Michael the owner and our tour guide was amazing. He is so charismatic and he really enjoys his STORIES of Houston. Our group was small and quaint to which I personally enjoyed. The pubs we toured were warm, accepting friendly and the drinks were PERFECT. The tour is not overly exerting, you definitely need to wear comfortable shoes ladies, be prepared for the average drink is maybe 8.00 each but they are awesome and not crazy strong but allows you to savour the drink. The weather was great for us and we even went and ate at one of Michael's suggested pizza spots Romas and it was well WORTH IT! Would 100 book another tour with HoustonUrbanAdventures and will even try to take on his suggestion for Galveston this weekend! Thank you Michael, and remember I Like Chocolate! DemButlers Dallas

The tour was great, the only drwback is that I and other two people got an old address on the voucher so were waiting at a place that was actually closed. Finally we can talk to the tour guide and showed us the right directions. At least, they were close. When we joined the group it was so much fun. We got to see different bars and learn their history. Very recommended, specially if you are new to the area

Was expecting more quite frankly. Thought it would be more about the history of the pubs, and was more about the history of the city. Went to four pubs. The first one was in the basement of a market and barely qualified as a pub, and the last one was in a hotel lobby. The middle two pubs were interesting.

Michael was our tour guide and he was great. He was very personable and if info was hearsay rather than absolute truth he made that clear. He had freedom to choose which pubs to visit and his choices were great. We had a very fun evening and would recommend it to anyone that wants to hear some history of Houston and the pubs and visit some fun pub spots.
