Consider starting with an architectural tour of Downtown and along the MetroRail line, and combining it with a stop   at one of our city's famous museums. The Museum of Fine Arts and The Houston Museum of Natural Sciences are within a block of the Rail lines. The Holocaust Museum is very close, too.

There are a lot of great places to eat both in downtown and along the rail-line. Consider combining a driving/walking/light-rail tour with luncheon for a special treat.

Because I LOVE what I do, I endeavour to make my tours Affordable and Fun for all ages. Most three hour walking tours are priced at $20. dollars per person, with a minimum of 6 persons.

A discount for groups of 10 or more may be negotiated. Individual or small group tours can be also be arranged.

I am almost always willing to negotiate price!!!

I am Michael Zargarov an Experienced Public Tour Guide/Licensed Limousine Driver in the City of Houston and I want to show you HOUSTON.

Perhaps you've already seen me around downtown? That handlebar Mustache is hard to miss! (a nod to my Rromani heritage!)

I have been giving Walking Tours of the Historic Downtown Area of Houston and its amazing Tunnel System for almost seven years now.

I have learned a lot about the history, architecture and culture of our Great city and I enjoying teaching others about what I know.

May I show you, your family, friends and/or co-workers a side of Houston you and they probably do not already know!?

My Downtown Walking/Light~Rail Tour takes roughly three hours and is a great basic introduction to what Downtown Houston has to offer...both to native Houstonians, and to visitors alike. Because so much of what is really worth seeing is available along our wonderful Light Rail line, I center my tours along its route, with short walks on either side of the tracks to see the most important sights: our fantastic City Hall; great art deco bank lobbies; wonderfully restored older buildings; the most modern skyscrapers. We will even have a chance to see all of downtown from way up high in one of those skyscrapers.

The basic three hour tour can, of course be extended by adding a luncheon break at some point within that period...perhaps extending the total tour time to 4 hours. As you desire!

I can easily customize any tour to include more of what you are particularly intertested in.

Tours can also be arranged using a Luxury Sedan for your convenience and comfort.

I have a particular fondness for 1920s-1940's Art Deco architecture. Houston has some marvelous examples of this wonderful style and I delight in making these places known to visitors.
