What to expect

This self-guided audio and GPS tour takes you through Houston with maximum flexibility, safety, and value. Simply hop in your own car, get the tour guide app set up on your phone, and get started. All audio plays automatically based on location.

Start by the bayou which has long been the lifeblood of this city and hear about the deadly battles which took place along the river. Then visit Sam Houston Park, where past and present collide in the architecture, offering a hugely varied glimpse into life in the area.

Next, head to the Historic District and get to know some of Houston’s complex past. At Christ Church Cathedral, hear a quintessential story of southern community back in the 1800s. Then continue on to Emancipation Park and get familiar with the significance of Juneteenth within Houston.

As you drive through the Museum District, uncover the secrets behind some of Houston’s more notorious urban legends, then visit the grandest green space in the city: Hermann Park. It even features a zoo!

After that, swing through the famous Rice University and hear the tale of a wild senior prank pulled back in the ‘80s, engineered by a student still known only as “the mastermind.”

Continuing on to MacGregor Park, get the scoop on how the intense Hurricane Harvey impacted Houston, then learn about the importance of oil and gas to this city. Finally, get some stellar space facts and visit the world-famous Johnson Space Center! The tour concludes here.
