10:00 AM, Downtown Tunnel Tour in English

Duration 2h

Believe it or not, there is an entire city below ground floor in Texas' largest business district. Downtown Houston has over 100 different buildings that connect underground including some of Texas' most notable Fortune 500 headquarters.

This tour will meet inside of the McDonalds on 808 Dallas St, essentially right across from the CenterPoint Energy Center which is the first Skyscraper that we go underneath. Your guide will lead you through the most extensive underground tunnel system in the United States! As part of this tour we will visit multiple historical and artistic sections of Downtown's tunnels as well as the corporate buildings that lie on top of them. Not only is the architecture of the buildings beautiful but their history is as well. Make sure to bring your smile and camera because we will provide you with unique photo-op opportunities and secrets that most native Houstonians don’t even know!

I live in the Houston area and I have NEVER done this tour! Luis was such a knowledgeable tour guide. He was friendly and welcomed our many questions without making us feel silly for not knowing something. As a matter of fact, he ENCOURAGED our questions! Luis did not rush us on the tour and stayed as long as we wanted to in order to cover so much territory. It is well worth the +/- $25 for the tour - even if you equipped yourself with a map of the tunnel, it would be difficult to decide on which buildings to to in to, and you certainly would not know of the history of so many of these beautiful buildings. My stepmother, a frequent visitor to Houston, told me that this is one of the most interesting things that she has EVER done in Houston!
