Lace up your sneakers and see the best of downtown Tulsa on a guided tour with local pros. Tulsa Tours offers a variety of public and private walking tours to fit your interests and budget.
Visit their tour office in the Philcade, an Art Deco landmark built by oil man Waite Phillips in the heart of downtown. Their office features a collection of vintage Tulsa postcards and pennants dating from when Tulsa reigned as Oil Capital of the World.
Architecture & Art Deco is the most popular tour among visitors. Learn why Tulsa has such fantastic architecture and unlock the meaning behind ornamental details in these storied buildings. Styles featured on this tour include Neo-Gothic, Art Deco and Modernism. Tulsa Tours has gained exclusive access to perhaps the city's most dazzling Deco lobby that is otherwise closed to the public. For locals, the Tunnel Tour is a best-seller. The "tunnels" are interior corridors between and below historic office buildings. Guides discuss the history of these buildings and the stories of the oil men who built them as visitors flow through these passageways without stepping outside until near the end.
Tulsa Tours also offers a free self-guided Mural Tour on its website and operates two licensed Airbnb apartments in the Deco District that are decorated with vintage Tulsa memorabilia.
