Overview of New Orleans

Joel brought New Orleans to life for us. We did not have time to hop off the bus, but we got an overall flavor of the many things to see the next time we visit New Orleans.

We booked this tour for Thanksgiving Day but it was closed. Somehow the computer didn't catch that. However, they were open on the 25th. We took the tour and it was great. You get to see the whole city for a small price. The tour speaker was fun and knowledgeable. I definitively recommend taking this tour the 1st day of your visit and then decide where you want to spend more time.

Lots of FUN

Wonderful tour, lots of fun. Tour guide, a native of New Orleans was "On and Poppin'". He gave the inside and outside scoop of the city. Witty, knowledgeable and friendly. The day was nice and the temperature was perfect for Nov. 19th. Worth every penny spent.

Stop was right outside...
Nicholas_M
, Nov 2021
Stop was right outside our hotel which was nice. The info shared by the on board guides was different each time. One was more architecture focused, another about people stories/history, and the last was just terrible and provided nothing worthwhile. They do need more buses. Every 30 minutes makes getting off not worth it since some of the locations there isn’t 30 minutes of stuff to see.
