5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Well worth the cost of a 3-day pass. Guides were informative, offering lots of historical facts and fun trivia.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The people / tour guides were knowledgeable and kind and helpful. Great ride!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Very nice tour. Our guide was a young man named Tim, he was very easy to understand, pleasant and very knowledgeable! We bought the 3 day pass, but could have easily been satisfied with a 1 day tour. The tour is about 2 1/2 hours and you can get off and on at any stop. The unfortunate thing is that the bus only goes in one direction, so to get back to where you started you have the make the entire circle . We enjoyed the walking tour of the Garden District very much. It was guided by a young lady named Kristi, very pleasant! There were a couple of the pick ups that were off schedule, some as much as 30 minues, but overall a good deal!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Worked out well. Was a very hot day. We sat back and enjoyed the shade on the top deck and our knowledgeable guide!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

The best bang for your buck 3 day on off bus tour takes you all over the city. Due this first and get the layout of the city and make notes where you want to go next so convenient and affordable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This was the first time we had taken the off and on tour. It was well worth the cost. The narrators were very informative, and we learned a lot we did not know about New Orleans. We will definitely take this tour the next time we go to New Orleans.
