What past clients are saying?
Five stars for Darren who gave is a personal and memorable tour. From the moment he picked us up at the cruise terminal on Wednesday to the time he dropped us at the airport on Thursday he impressed us with his knowledge, his timing, his ability to circumvent traffic jams and long lineups, his humour, and his common sense. We learned a lot, we always felt safe, and we had fun. I would highly recommend Darren to groups of any age, and I would hire him again if we were ever going 'his way' again. Joan B. Canada
A great tour! I had made some requests due to medical reasons when booking and they were graciously taken into account. Sorry my husband & I didn't discover Darren earlier during our stay on Houston. Sue N. USA
