Great Galveston tour for families. The tour goes in and out of the water --- great fun for the kids. Informative while being entertaining. I would recommend for people looking for something to do in Galveston other than the beach.

The tour was awesome. The guy that drive us was funny and very informative about the city. He knew the back stories on the town and kept us entertained with family friendly jokes. A must see if you go to Galveston.
