General Information

As anyone going to or coming from a cruise ship typically has one large suitcase and one carry-on, we need to allocate more space for luggage.  We use a small van for 1 to 3 people, a full size van for 4 to 9 people, and buses for larger groups.  If you have more luggage resulting in us having to upgrade the vehicle, a surcharge will be added.

We normally pick up at either of the terminals at 9:00 AM.  If you want a later pickup, let us know.

We normally drop off at either of the terminals at 12:00 or 1:00 PM.  If you want an earlier or later drop off, let us know.

We can also provide tours of:

  1. Houston
  2. Galveston
  3. Space Center Houston (SCH), and/or the
  4. The San Jacinto Monument (SJM) and the Battleship Texas (BT).

The cost of the tours will depend on the length that you want, how many people are in your party, and the related admission fees at SCH, the SJM, and the BT.  We can also provide abridged versions of the tours above so as to mix some of the them together.  The most popular length is a 3.0-hour tour.  However, if you have the majority of the day available, longer and more inclusive tours are available, also.
