Wonderfully informative

Thoroughly recommend this tour for anyone visiting New Orleans just for a few days, to get a feel for the city. Our driver Kindrell was very knowledgeable, informative and amusing. We stopped in the City Park for coffee halfway through, the tour started at 10.00 am and finished at about 13.30. Among other things it goes into the Lower Ninth Ward which was decimated by Hurricane Katrina, explains why the flooding was so bad. Humbling stuff!

We took the New Orleans combined tour and we highly recommend it. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He provided so much history and after researching tours, this is the only tour that takes you through the ninth ward. An area that the other tours seem to want to avoid.

We walked from our hotel to the Gray Lines tour gazebo and began our Isle of Orleans tour. Our guide, Katrell, was from New Orleans and very knowledgeable about the history of the city. He began by pointing out historical sights and explaining who owned them and their importance. He also pointed out points of interest, places to eat and legends. We also visited the 9th ward and areas affected by Katrina. He explained the use of the outer city walls and levys and how they were used to defend the city in case of another hurricane or other water disaster. We also toured a cemetery briefly, which is beautiful and eerie! We had a quick stop for beignets and coffee at City Park, which was amazing and lovely for a family outing on it's own.
Our last stop was The Canal lighthouse. Although beautiful and newly restored, I felt that it wasn't as interesting as the rest of the tour. Some of the information given during the lighthouse tour was informative and good about the history of the area and the need to conserve the lake and surrounding water. But I was more interested in the city and the different cultures and societies brought up in New Orleans than about the lighthouse.
Overall I think it's a great tour, you get to see the different sides of this eclectic city, the European French, Spanish, Creole, American and everything in between. I highly recommend it to anyone that doesn't know the history of this rich city and wants to tour it with a great guide.

If your trying to kill some time this might be worth doing but if you time is limited there are much better tours to enjoy than this one.
