Hi, We have a 16 months baby, How Can We to take the tour with him?, Can We take only a two days tour?...(Saturday and Sunday), Which is the cost for this two days?...
Hi Juan Carlos,
I think our tour companies can accomodate you with your baby. A couple that I would recommend you make contact with are Houston Global Solutions and Houston City Tours. Both are good companies but they would probably customize a tour for you so I suggest you reach out to them directly for pricing information.
Hi, can you give me some suggestion for some baby shower venues. Idealy some where that has a garden.
A few places that pop to mind: Shade in the Heights, Tiny Boxwoods, Ouisie's Table, Backstreet Cafe, The Grove and Daily Review Cafe. Some of these have great patios and gardens, others are just fun brunch-like spots.
hello, does the visitor guide include a city Map? thanks
Let me know if you have any questions!
I saw somewhere where there are daily train rides(Amtrak) that you can take that are not too far but still something exciting for children (ages 8 & 5)but I can't find the information. Hope you can help. Thanks,
There is an Amtrak route (New Orleans to Los Angeles) that stops in Houston. We also have a new service called Megabus that travels from Houston to Galveston, Austin, Dallas, New Orleans and San Antonio.
If you want to take your kids on a train within Houston, I'd suggest the METRORail, a 7.5 mile light rail line that stretches from downtown to Reliant Park. Click here for a list of things to do at each stop.
If you have additional questions, let me know!
hi veronica, my cousins are visiting houston tomorrow for about 10 hrs. What do you suggest the places to see in that time?
How old are your cousins? What do they like to do? During what hours will they be here? If you can answer those questions for me, I can better answer yours.

Thanks for the info! Here are my suggestions:
Our newest attraction in Houston is the Paleontology Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. There are more than 60 mounted T-Rexes, and the entire exhibit is interactive. While you're there, you can also check out the Titanic exhibition.There are 17 other museums within 1.5 miles of this one, and they are all fantastic. Click here for suggestions on the best way to tackle the Museum District.
The Menil Collection is one of Houston's great treasures, and it's free all the time.
One of my favorite breakfast spots is the breakfast klub--the line is always shorter during the week, so I'd definitely check it out.
Saint Arnold Brewery tours are always a blast, and there is one tomorrow at 3pm.
I hope this helps! If they have specific interests other than art and food, let me know.

Im looking for a nice urban/mixed crowd that enjoys music and art work. Any suggestions.
Have you considered becoming a member of any of the museums or becoming involved in a musical organization? Most arts and music groups around the city have memberships or groups that get together for networking events. If you can tell me specifically what kind of art and music you like, I can give you more specific suggestions of who to contact.
Hi veronica I will Visiting Houston, TX the week of June 25th thru June 269th. I'm planning to purchas the citypass to see the Aquarium, Space Center and so forth. So what i would like to do is get a Condo or Townhome for that week. Are there any available somewhere in between those two tourist attractions. Thanks
The Houston CityPASS is great!
I don't know of any condos or townhomes you can rent for a week, but I'd recommend you look at an extended stay hotel. As far as area of town, I think Downtown or the Museum District is the best place to look. You can travel between Downtown and Museum District using the Houston Light Rail system as well.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
I am looking forward to go out with my kids to Battleship Museum. Is there any place there is that is free that our kids would also think is fun. I am looking forward for your reply.
If you are out at Battleship Texas there are a few other things that are very cool to do close by. Just down the street is the San Jacinto Monument & Museum, which has a great display on Texas history and offers a fantastic view of the area from atop the monument.
Also, Armand Bayou Nature Center is close by, with trails, wildlife exhibits and much more!
Hope this helps.
Hello Veronica, My name is Daniela Carreno nice meeting you. I'd be visiting Houston, TX on the first week of July. I am from El Centro, CA and a friend will be going with me. However, we have never been in Houston before. The only reason we are going to Houston is to work only for a month in La Fisheria restaurant (4705 Inker St. Houston, TX) For this reason, we are looking for a place to stay for about a month and means for transportation. I did some research and I found out that you count with Houston Metro but I am not sure if this will be the more convenient means of transportation or paying for a cab everyday. We have been looking for apartments but most offered us a minimum stay of three months. Then we started looking for an extended stay in a hotel but we found out they are a bit more expensive. If you could helped me with all this information I would really appreciate it. Thank You Daniela Carreno
I don't know of any apartments in the area that rent for a month. But, you should look into extended stay hotels in the Heights area, which is close to La Fisheria.
Hope this helps!
