Houston Brewery Tours
Craft beer has been taking Houston by storm, with new breweries and microbreweries popping up all over the place. You’d be forgiven if you couldn’t keep up with them all. Thanks to the folks at The Wave, you don’t have to! The shuttle service offers a variety of tours to great local breweries, as well as wineries and distilleries. On the third Saturday of every month, the “Get Crafty Houston” tour takes thirsty riders by Karbach Brewing Company, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, and 8th Wonder Brewery for special tours, tastings, and souvenirs. You’ll also swing by the iconic “Beer Can House” covered with beer cans and other aluminum items.
Houston Culinary Tours
Houston is famous for its restaurant scene, and a culinary-themed tour with The Wave is a fantastic way to explore the tastes of this diverse melting pot. A Houston Family Groups tour introduces you to headline-grabbing cooking clans like the Mandolas, Pappas, Carrabbas, Goodes, and Corduas. The Restaurant Groups trip delivers you to some of Houston’s most talked-about eateries like Hunky Dory, Down House, and Liberty Kitchen.
Other culinary trips include “The Italian Job,” “The Burger Bus,” “The Sushi Roll,” and “Tacos & Tequilas.” If you’re lucky enough to catch a “Chef-Led Tour,” you’ll be on-hand for a journey to a local chef’s top picks for barbecue, chocolate, late-night bites, or just his or her favorite spots. Guides include award-winning chefs like Chris Shepherd and Justin Turner. Each tour is unique and unlike any foodie experience you’ve ever had.
Houston Art Tours
With no less than 19 cultural centers in the Museum District alone, plus countless murals and art installations throughout the Inner Loop, Houston is an art-lover’s paradise. Hop on The Wave for a tour of H-Town’s most photographed locales. Don’t miss the newly launched Street Art & Street Food Tours, held the second Saturday of every month. These tours, led by a leading Houston artist, provide the perfect chance to discover Bayou City’s remarkable arts scene.
