Houston Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
See the historical highlights and cultural delights of Houston on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour by double-decker bus. From an excellent vantage point on the top deck of the bus, listen to fascinating audio commentary as you cruise past important landmarks like the historic City Hall and Houston Zoo. See popular attractions like Market Square, Downtown Aquarium and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, hopping off to explore further whenever an attraction captures your attention. Rejoin the tour at a time to suit your schedule at any conveniently located stops along the route.
What to Expect
Climb aboard a distinctive double-decker bus at one of six conveniently located stops in Houston. Pop in your headphones and listen to informative onboard commentary as you cruise through the vibrant Texan city, passing iconic landmarks like the Chase Tower and the Convention Centre. 

With your hop-on, hop-off ticket, disembark the bus whenever you wish to explore an attraction further. Hop off near Market Square Park to sample a cosmopolitan variety of food in the historical 19th-century square; or, ascend to the vertiginous observation deck of the JP Morgan Chase Tower to enjoy sweeping vistas from Texas’ highest building. 

Stop at City Hall to admire the tranquil park and historical structures that surround it, or absorb the electric atmosphere of the theatre district as you explore the thriving 17-block area. Cross Hermann Park to visit Houston Zoo and the erudite Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Museum of Fine Arts. 

Buses depart from each of the six stops every 90 minutes and run between 10am and 4pm. Please see the Itinerary section below for a full list of stops serviced.
