Offered by Houston City Tours, the rides provide local experts who tell interesting stories about Houston’s neighborhoods, attractions, and traditions.

Passengers can hop on or off at any of the six tour stops, and places to visit include:

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

Since 1948, the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston has presented the best and most exciting national, international, and regional art. The museum states that it is “Always Fresh, Always Free,” and that public engagement with the exhibitions is encouraged through its educational programs and publications.

Houston Zoo

Spanning fifty-five-acres, the Houston Zoo is home to more than nine hundred animal species. With over two million visitors every year, it is the second most visited zoo in the country, and the dedicated staff is eager to share their knowledge of the animals and habitats. Exhibits include Hoofed Run, African Forest, and Primates.

Sam Houston Park

Sam Houston Park takes visitors back in time as it’s home to a variety of old structures. They include a rustic cabin built in 1823, a Victorian house, and the San Filipe Cottage that represents middle-class life in Houston during the latter part of the 19th century.
