AWESOME!!!!! HUMOUROUS!!!!! DELIGHTFUL!!!!! HISTORY-FILLED!!!! are all words that describe this tour. OUR guide KENDRAIL, not sure if I spelled it correctly, incorporated humor, history and plenty of secrets of New Orleans in this BEAUTIFULLY guided tour through the STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL Crescent City. Kendrail pointed out little known facts the entire time. I almost never wanted the tour to end. Kendrail is a WONDERFUL tour guide. I even booked another tour that he ONLY drove for, wished that he had that tour but having him on the bus was just as nice. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to one and to all. EXPERIENCE NEW ORLEANS the BESY way on the Motor coaches, roomy and air-conditioned. Kendrail is the BEST tour guide.

Driver and guide are standouts, made the tour for sure, don't remember the names, but both did a sensational job. Especially the guide her knowledge of your great city and its people was just great, will remember this for sure.

Gerald really knew his stuff. We really enjoyed the bus tour of the highlights of New Orleans. We could not have learned all the facts without it. We only had a short time in New Orleans and the tour fit in perfectly!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. In spite of the post-Katrina tour not included during our day's trip, he covered much of what we needed to know about it from a simple question I asked, which, I'm pretty sure, everyone greatly appreciated his additional discussion on this topic. The bus was very clean and comfortable. The sites covered on this tour were good. We went to some of the places that our tour guide highlighted along the way. My guests and I were very happy that we got on this very informative and pleasant tour, first thing in the morning (weather-wise).

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

This tour was just long enough to give us a highlight of what New Orleans has to offer. It was exactly what I was looking for. I also chose this tour because it did not visit the area Katrina hit. I did not want to see that. Well worth the money and the 2 hours!
