A long standing plan was this tour. It was good for a four day tour covering the most places in Houston. In some places, I could not move that the collection and the exhibits or artifacts strapped by feet. But we had to go to other places and as per the list there were many more to cover. I was happy that I was a part of this tour. Going with such tour operator is the wise decision or else we cannot cover all these places in the stipulated time and also get a good hotel stay with morning breakfast.

This is such a wonderful tour. I am still in the trance. Texas is a beautiful place. I always wanted to visit Texas and this was the perfect chance. It was my first tour to Texas and I am not at all disappointed. This turned out to be amazing. Wonderful experience.

I always love traveling with friends or some colleagues, but this time unfortunately I am stuck alone and am on this tour. I liked this tour as it brought out so many things that happened in the past. Today I saw many of the things and I am taken by surprise that the history is present before me in different formats. A wonderful genuine tour showing all the genuine facts that I have sudden interest in history and wish to know a lot more. A nice tour, well scheduled, never a delay and the guide and the group were fabulous.

This was decided by my sister and her husband that we me and my hubby join them in this 4 day tour covering Houston. We just joined them in the last moment and were amazed to see and know so many places. The names of some places were just heard and today we were standing in front of them or are literally inside the places such as Rice University. The rainforest and the different species of animals and birds flying so close did give me cold shivers at times. The tour passengers were not interactive and it would have been nice to have good communicative passengers.

This is a good tour but I will only recommend it to people who have never been to Texas because most of the people who have been to Texas might have seen these attractions. It is a wonderful trip overall and you really get to enjoy it a lot. As Texas is famous for its country music, don’t forget to enjoy that as well.

The trip as a whole is good, if you think individually, there is not much in this four day tour. You might think that you are wasting your time. But collectively, you are doing a lot of exciting activities with people which makes it special. So overall, it is an exciting tour and I think everyone must try it at least once.

The overall trip was good. The hotel accommodation was great. They managed everything very professionally and smartly, hats off to the managing committee of this tour. The attractions were good but most of them are the ones I had already visited. But I am rating this tour because of their proper management.

I am disappointed. I don’t know what’s all the hype is about? I simply didn’t find this tour exciting at all. I might have been overlooked or what but this is just another ordinary tour with a lot of promises but little deliverance

Pathetic tour. I was so disappointed. The highlights and description are so appealing and attractive but when you reach there, you find out that the description is actually scam and not good at all. I am so disappointed.

I went alone and like traveling alone. It is nice not to be bickered or disturbed by anyone is my opinion. I enjoyed the tour. The tour was interesting bringing a lot of facts about the events and history.  Though I took interest and saw all the details, I am not much a history person. So I started feeling bored in between. Luckily they moved to other places and they were interesting.  I am happy, the tour bus was neat and clean, the guide and the driver were really helpful. The lunch and the accommodations in the hotel were perfect.
