Israel was so humble and down to earth. All the history he shared truly showed his passion and pride for the city he lives in. He really enjoys the interaction with his patrons, so I encourage you to ask questions or just converse! We took note and made our own list of places to come back and spend more time, from what Israel shared during the tour. 3 hours sounded overwhelming, but there were several stops to step out and see monuments so the time went by fast. We are excited to spend a weekend in Houston for a more in-depth experience of the city with a small-town mentality.

Beautiful places. It was fun !! Our tour Guide was so friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend it a 100 %.

Our driver was friendly and the tour was exactly what I was anticipating, informative and helpful.

Israel's joy and pride in Houston is affecting. He is an awesome and knowledgeable tour guide.
