Good tour of downtown Houston, but it would be great if it was longer and went to areas like midtown and other places outside of just downtown Houston. otherwise, good tour. Space center is cool, but that part of tour is just transportation FYI. no commentary if you are expecting that.

This trip is worth for the money and time! Highly recommended.

The day started with the great office in downtown Houston. Houston city tour was fabulous. The city tour bus driver was amazing and detailed for explaining everything very well. After the City tour completed, the trip to NASA was very nice and had great trip to NASA. One thing we were not told about the control center for NASA trip requires a separate entry ticket (no cost) but it needs to be required when you have NASA ticket purchased. So in future the tours company should be purchasing block of tickets for their tourists so people coming from out of town do have that attraction available to visit at NASA. Lines were very very big so plan to go early in order to cover everything at NASA.

I was not aware that this activity included a city tour before going out to the NASA space center. Consequently, I booked a Hop on city tour separately and could not get a refund when I asked for one. We could not use the Hop on City tour and so felt that we were cheated out of our money. The trip to NASA was great, but it felt rushed. There was not time to do all the tours available at the Space Center. If we had gone straight to the Space Center, instead of having the separate City tour first, we may have had more time available to us to see all the sights at the Space Center. Also, the Space Center is open later than our 4:30 pick up time, so I felt that we could have used a bit more time at that end as well.
