Great Tour. We toured on January 10, 2015; the weather was sunny, but a bit colder than usual--40-45 degrees. We were picked up and driven around town in a smaller, but comfortable bus. The driver spoke over a PA system while she drove us thru all the more interesting parts of the city. Several times she stopped so we could get a better look at something. We stopped and got out of the bus to tour a colonial mansion, and an old cemetery. Great tour for someone who has only one day to take in as much of the city as possible. We drove around much of the French quarter. It was good to see what it is like in the morning, as we ended up spending our late evening there too. Highly recommend this tour.

On a freezing cold morning Diane picked us up and took us to the cemetery (as you do). Thus began our tour of New Orleans. Whilst the tour suggests architectural, you will get an historical account of the City. Loved it The only thing that perhaps could have improved this tour is more opportunity to get out of the bus (even if only for a frozen moment) and take a photo or two. OMG the park with the art (sorry don't remember the name) where we stop for coffee - incredible. Take the time to walk through the sculptures. It is attached to NOMA. And you absolutely must eat the beignets at the 'Morning Call'. Oh you must! This is a must do tour if heading to New Orleans.

Our guide was very informative. We really enjoyed the Garden District and the French Quarter. Being picked up at our hotel was a plus.

Our tour guide, Diane, was very knowledgeable and has a nice sense of humor. This was our first trip to New Orleans and this was a great way to get an overview of the city. There were only 7 of us on this tour so the seating was very comfortable and all sight lines for viewing were unobstructed. We have booked several tours in other cities through Viator and will continue to do so.

This is a great tour to discover the different parts of New Orleans and it's history. Our tour was changed to include some post Katrina sights which was a bonus and other parts were removed. The small group allowed us to ask questions and get a more intimate feel for the place which is hard to do on a large tour. Our driver/guide Muriel had a deep knowledge of everything NOLA. She has a great presentation style that we found downright charming and funny. The tour operatour was very organized dealing with changes to the tour schedule. Recommended!

This is a great little tour to start out your trip, especially if you haven't been to New Orleans before. Loved trying all the different foods and getting a feel for the French Quarter. Our guide, Lyndel, had some wonderful historical knowledge and was very organized - she expertly navigated the streets and got us in and out of the eateries like a pro. The people on our tour were a fun bunch, so that also added to the overall enjoyment. All of the places we ate were interesting and had delicious food. One of the recommended restaurants we ate at after the tour, Tableau, wasn't great, but our guide hadn't been there for a while.

I enjoyed the tour. The guide was very friendly and demonstrated considerable history knowledge of the architecture of the city. It was a great tour which I did not feel that we rushed at all and had time to explore on my own, but enjoyed the day learning about the interesting history and life in New Orleans.

A very good tour of the entire city. Glad I took it on my first day in New Orleans.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. It gave us a full sense of understanding and enjoying New Orleans then and now. A full four hours in a van small enough to go where typical tour buses cannot go, with enough opportunity to stretch and an excellent tour of Longvue. Our guide was friendly and considerate, knowledgeable of history, geography, the economy and the art and culture of this unique city, though with an unfortunate tendency to refer to seminal events as "before Jesus Christ". We saw cemetaries, bayou, traces of Hurricane Katrina, the French Quarter, Lake Pontchartrain, Carrollton, Lafayette, antebellum mansions and many places of note.. How and why the city grew was well explained. We would recommend this tour and felt it delivered value.

The tour was very interesting to say the least. We got a lot of information from the guide.

The tour was generally what we expected, just a quick overview. The ride was VERY rough due to the poor streets and bad shocks on the van.
