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.

Picked up from our hotel and joined the others for our tour. Nice small group (max. 7). Went up to the top of the needle, then to the Alamo, the Grotto, the Pearl, and ended the night with a River Walk boat ride. Brian was incredibly knowledgeable of the city. This was a great tour on the first night in town as it gave us ideas of what to do the next two days. Highly recommend.

Best tour I have I been on. Vehicle is very comfortable. Trace is a star. If I can give him 10 stars I would. Really highly recommend for everybody.

Would recommend this tour. Great overview of the city from an insider’s point of view. Easy ride for all biking skill levels.

Brian Rankin was our tour guide. He was professional and personable. Very knowledgeable. Excellent tour. Highly recommended
