    “We had a blast!! Rick was a fantastic guide and the food was delicious. My friend and I have lived in Houston for years, but really enjoyed the opportunity to walk around the Heights and learn more about our city! We took my friend's 3mo old little girl with us and everyone was so accommodating. I'll definitely recommend this to friends!”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Shannon, That's just what we want to hear! I know our guides take a lot of pride in helping locals discover new spots in their own city, so I'll be sure to give Rick your compliments. Who knows, maybe your friend's daughter will grow up to be a foodie, seeing as she's having such cool experiences as a 3 month old! Cheers, Inah
    “Gino was awesome! She was knowledgeable and genuine. She definitely heightened the experience!”
    “Tour was fun, guide was great and told some cool facts/stories about the Heights and Houston that I didn't know even living here most of my life. Only issue was that for some reason they did not receive my dietary restriction, so I really didn't have anything to try at the first location. That was disappointing but appeared to be just a mix-up because there was a vegan on the tour who received specialized tastings.”
    “Our host John was extremely friendly and personable, and we had a great tour with him. Due to a family emergency, we had our 3-year-old granddaughter with us, and both the phone representative and John were very accommodating and welcoming to allow us to bring her along. Food was fantastic and we will be visiting several of the restaurants again. Please apologize to John -- until we were driving away, I did not realize my husband had taken John's personal pizza when John had offered the leftovers from Coltivare. My apologies because my husband was too busy enjoying his gelato to hear the story about how the pizza arrived at our table. But needless to say it was very good and my husband enjoyed it for lunch the next day. Appreciated John remembering about the seafood allergies for one of our group. Very personal attention to details! Would highly recommend the tour. Helped that it was a gorgeous day for a walk through The Heights. This was a Christmas gift from our son, and we were pleased to let him know how much we enjoyed it - - we sent him the Houston mural pic of us that John took. Again another great touch!”
