Advance paid reservations are required for all tours.

Meet your guide at the Visitors Center inside City Hall. Watch a short video about things to do and pick up free literature and perhaps some souvenirs. Restrooms are available.

Take a skybridge to the Doubletree Hotel in Allen Center. Restrooms are available.

Walk outside to Sam Houston Park, where you will listen to your guide and free cell phone/audio tours discussing the early history of Houston through the 10 house museums operated by the Heritage Society: the Kellum-Noble House, Schoolroom, and Herb Garden (audio tour); the Nichols-Rice-Cherry House, USS Houston Memorial, and Baker Playhouse (audio tour); Old Place  (audio tour); St. John Church (audio tour); Bandstand (audio tour); the Pillot House (audio tour); the San Felipe Cottage (audio tour); the Staiti House (audio tour); the Yates House (audio tour); and the Fourth Ward Cottage (audio tour)
