OU ALLONS-NOUS?”      “WHERE ARE YA’LL AT?”       “A DONDE VAMOS?

AROUND THE GLOBE, LOCATION IS IMPORTANT!!  FOR OVER TEN YEARS, SEGWAY TOURS OF HOUSTON HAS STARTED OUR TOURS AT THE SPACIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL PLAZA IN FRONT OF THE WORTHAM CENTER FOR PERFORMING ARTS LOCATED AT 501 TEXAS STREET IN THE HEART OF THE THEATER DISTRICT OF DOWNTOWN HOUSTON.

SADLY, BECAUSE OF THE EXTENSIVE DAMAGE THE WORTHAM BUILDING SUSTAINED DURING HURRICANE HARVEY, THE THEATER WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL AT LEAST 2018.   WE PLAN TO RETURN TO THE WORTHAM ONCE “HOUSTON FIRST” BRINGS HER BACK TO FULL GLORY.

UNTIL THEN PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE FOUR POSSIBLE STARTING LOCATIONS DEPENDING ON WHICH TOUR YOU HAVE BOOKED.     

THE BUFFALO BAYOU TOUR, TWILIGHT TOUR, AND HISTORY TOURS  BEGIN AT “ALLEN’S LANDING” ON THE BUFFALO BAYOU BIKE TRAIL.  WE MEET EACH TOUR GROUP UNDER THE MAIN STREET BRIDGE AT MAIN STREET AND COMMERCE STREET FOR CHECK IN AND SAFETY TRAINING.  THE STREET ADDRESS IS:

901 COMMERCE STREET (FORMER SPAGHETTI WAREHOUSE BUILDING)HOUSTON, TEXAS 77002

    

  WE SOMETIMES ROUTE TO AN ALTERNATE LOCATION AT:

“TRANQUILITY PARK” AT 400 RUSK STREET, HOUSTON TEXAS 77002.WE WILL MEET AT THE WALKER STREET AND LOUISIANA STREET CORNER OF THE PARK. **If an alternate location is to be used, you will be notified by text, phone or email at least an hour before the tour is set to begin.
