Description

Galveston Island

Stroll along wave-riddled seawalls, spot dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico, and explore historic landmarks scattered around the shores of Galveston Island. Paired with a fun-filled hop-on hop-off tour of Houston, this guided tour is an ideal way to explore the southeast sights of the Lone Star State.

Begin your day popping around Houston on a double decker bus, checking out local landmarks including the Heritage park and historic homes or visiting the marine creatures at the renowned Downtown Aquarium. With 6 amazing views around the city, this hop-on excursion lets you explore. Once you've seen the sights, wind your way back to the HCT Visitors Center to board a bus to the sun-soaked shores of Galveston Island.

When you arrive, make your way to the Galveston Seawall for breath-taking views of the Gulf of Mexico, and then follow your guide to the marina for a boat ride to spot the spirited antics of bottle nose dolphins. After your aquatic adventure, head downtown to grab lunch at one of the local cafes, do some window shopping in the Strand Historic District, or investigate the incredible architecture of the Bishop's Palace before you meet back up with your ride and return to Houston.

Great tour! First took the 90 minute city tour then transferred To a 28 passenger bus, great driver, dropped some off at the Space center then went on to Galveston. Stopped at the sea wall Had lunch, shopped, and took a boat tour of the bay. Saw lots of dolphins. Wonderful day!

Very misleading. Thought we were getting the hop on hop off city tour with Galveston your. turned out to be a bus ride no on/off. Galveston was ok but not enough time to shop or eat. We should have driven ourselves as the dolphin boat ride was only $10 a person. Spent $600 and was only worth about $10.
