When you give a kidney transplant does the other person get your kidney tubes as well?

Yes: If by tubes you mean the ureter of the kidney, then yes a portion of the donor kidney ureter is transplanted into the recipient. The ureter is directly connected to the recipient bladder or to the recipient's native ureter.
