The NASAs Space Center Houston and the sightseeing tour were amazing, the guide had knowledge and extra information about the history of Houston
The city tour was excellent and our tour guide gave us information on all the sites and we were able to stop and take photos. Then we were off to NASA for the afternoon with a different driver. We were on our own at NASA and our driver was back to pick us up at the exact appointed time. We had more than enough time to tour NASA and also took the tram tour. It was an amazing place to tour. The whole tour was definitely worth the money spent. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Great experience . Gives the visitor a chance to actually be where the action and excitement was during the early days of the NASA space program!
Fantastic tour,everyone from the guide on the sightseeing tour to the guides at NASA went out of there way to be as helpful as possible.would highly recommend
I booked the tour mainly for the Space Center but I really enjoyed the 90 min tour of the city as well.
I had some trouble finding the location of the visitors center, but it's located at 1302 Dallas street.
Warning: The tour took 7 hours, not 6. We started at 10 am and were back at the visitors center 5:10 pm.
The tour was wonderful! Our driver was comical and friendly, and knew a lot about Houston and the city's history, really interesting! Loved the space centre too! We want to come back to Houston for a longer stay to discover more :
There was a good amount of time at the Space Centre - not enough to see everything, but 4 hours was probably close to saturation point. The downtown tour was also interesting. The group was small - about 6-8 people.
Houston City Tour Company took very good care of me during my city tour and my NASA tour. I was very kindly greeted by Stephanie when I arrived to check in. She was very helpful and made me very comfortable while I waited for the city tour bus to arrive on-time.
Antonio our driver and city tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city. He answered questions along the tour and talked about some of the city and state's history.
We returned to our starting place and we got into a comfortable van for the trip to NASA. He got us there safely, advised us when and where he would pick us up, gave us our tickets, advised us which NASA tours to take first and reassured us he would be back to pick us up and he was right on time picking us up.
I highly recommend this tour and company if you come to Houston. It was my very first trip there and being from NYC, I was very happy Viator chose this company for me. So book your tour with this company and you will be glad you did!
A great tour and well worth the time if you have even the slightest interest in our country's space program. Plenty to see and enjoy.
You really need at least 4 hours or longer to see everything. Great to see the actual rockets the size of them are huge when you are right beside them and the training centre for astronauts.
Well worth the visit.
This was a great way to get out to the Space Center without hiring a car. The Space Center is overwhelming and you can spend hours there. The post-trip City Tour was really informative and explained a lot about Houston's history.
I did love this tour! I found our guide to be a pretty nice person and with a lot of knowledge about Houston's City!
The visit to the Space center was also great. I highly recommend this tour.
The space center is amazing. There is plenty of free time and the tour of the cent is a MUST. You get about 2 hours of free time there.
The City tour was great, the guide on the bus was hilarious and shared loads of interesting information about Houston and surrounds history. We then went on a lovely air conditioned bus out to the Space Center Houston. An amazing center and definitely worth the time to go out there. We had 4 hours I think but could have spent more easily as so much to see, read and experience. Highly recommend this tour.
Strongly recommended!! NASA is amazing and the city tour is interesting.
Great tour. So glad we did it. Only had one day to 'see' Houston. This tour gave us a great little open top bus tour of the downtown area, with a commentary. Then we were whisked off to the Space Centre. Amazing museum exhibits and even more amazing that you get to see inside some of the working buildings of the Houston Space Centre experimental laboratories.
