Unearth Houston on this guided walking tour through Texas’s most populous city to explore what’s above and underground. From the 60th floor of Chase Tower to the 20-foot (6-m) deep Tunnel System, you get an all-encompassing view of Houston from every angle.

Start off your journey with a howdy to your guide as you set off down tree-lined Main Street towards the Chase Bank Building. This art-deco skyscraper is hard to miss with its 8 frescoes portraying local history and stained-glass window depicting the 1836 Battle of San Jacinto.

Then descend into Houston’s Tunnel System, a series of underground passageways that link businesses to one another. Stroll through gift shops, restaurants, and flower stands to reach Chase Tower—the 13th-tallest building in America—and take the elevator up to the 60th story to take in the sweeping views of the city skyline.

Back on ground level, admire Joan Miró’s whimsical sculpture, “Personage and Birds,” before trekking to Houston’s City Hall to do some shopping. Return to the Houston Tunnel, where you have a shopping opportunity to purchase some memorable souvenirs.

Next, head to Houston’s City Hall—home to one of the largest visitors centers in the U.S. Watch a short video, pose for a photo with a life-size statue of Houston’s namesake, and buy a cowboy hat, as you gain an insight into the history and culture of the city.

Your tour ends with a walk through downtown’s newest tunnel and returning to Georgia’s Market with your guide.
