Nice To Meet You!

Hey! I’m Rory, the founder of Howdy H-Town. Howdy may be the traditional greeting here in Texas, but Houston is so diverse that Hola, Xin Chao, Hailo, Ni Hao, and Hello are all quite common in this cosmopolitan city. This is one of the many reasons I have come to love this city. Originally from Australia, I moved here in 2017 to be with my partner. After working as a tour guide in Africa, Europe, and North America for the past 10 years, my first impressions of Houston were not positive—it did not have the aesthetic beauty of Cape Town, Paris, or Vancouver. Then I started to explore and learn about the city, and saw how much it has to offer. When people think of travelling, they usually don’t think of Houston, because the things that make Houston cool and unique are often hard to find—many Houstonians don’t even know that they exist. Whether you’re a local wanting to explore a new area of Houston or a visitor from out of town, let the passionate guides at Howdy H-Town show you a different side of this city.

Rory’s passion for the city and its people was contagious. He brings a new perspective to the roots and cultures of a vibrant neighbourhood, home to a variety cultures and therefore a variety of delicious food. The tour captured some small local restaurants that are pillars in their community, thought provoking street art, and a downtown park buzzing with activity and beauty that evolved from lifeless concrete parking lots. I would highly recommend this activity to tourists visiting the city, and to locals who want to explore and experience their own city from a new perspective.

Went on the downtown tour with friends. We had great weather and a lot of fun. Have lived here for a few years now and still learned so much about the city. Our guide was awesome and very knowledgeable about the area. Picked up a lot of great Houston trivia. After the tour, we enjoyed happy hour at a few of the downtown bars. A great way to spend the afternoon. Definitely recommend.

Awesome Saturday afternoon activity! I went on a walking tour of downtown Houston with my family and it was a great experience. The tour is very engaging and laid-back. You'll get to see different points of interest on your walk and learn about Houston history along the way. Our tour guide, Rory, has a great personality and awesome sense of humor! Very entertaining and informative!

I had a lot of fun going on the walking tour of downtown Houston with Howdy H-town! We were a large group, but either way our tour guide gave us a great experience. Rory has a fun personality and knows his Houston history even though he is from Australia! I think this is a great activity for visitors and locals. You'll learn so much interesting information about Houston that you didn't know before! It's a great way to see downtown!

I had such a great time on the downtown tour! I’m downtown pretty much everyday but everything I learned was brand new. The routes chosen are super beautiful and you get to see the beautiful architecture of Houston. I love the tour guide’s personality, it added so much to the tour and made it more fun. The ultimate guide to Houston you get access to at the end is also super helpful even for a Houston native! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour, it’s super fun for a group activity or a date night.
