In short, the best tour and tour guide we've encountered in years. From the Ninth Ward to The Garden District and many places in between, our driver/guide Wanda efficiently navigated rainy day metro traffic while never deviating from her flawless and extremely informative narration. The intimacy of an eight passenger van only added to our enjoyment. If you only take one guided tour in NOLA, make it this one. You won't regret your decision.
Enjoyed seeing some unique parts of New Orleans that we had not seen before. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting facts and information. Especially enjoyed seeing and hearing about the Katrina recovery. Unfortunately, the van we rode in was not comfortable for the tour. All of us on the tour thought it was a mini bus van for 15 people but it was a cargo van which was difficult to get in and out of and did not have the longer windows which makes it much easier to see various points of interest. Wish the transportation had been different. We greatly appreciated being picked up and dropped off at our hotel.
Our guide Wanda picked us up at our hotel just after 10. She was wonderful and had a wealth of info to share with us. There was a total of 9 on our tour and it really helped that Wanda had one of those headset microphones so we wouldn't miss a thing she was saying. Loved the stop in city park as well as the beautiful homes in the garden district. Drove past some of the areas affected by Hurr. Katrina and saw many of the markers showing just how high those water levels were. We even took some of Wanda's dining recommendations. New orleans cookery is outstanding! Such an informative tour that I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a good look at this great city.
Wonderful tour and fantastic experience! Teddy was so knowledgeable about this wonderful city and we're so glad we took the time to go on the tour. I highly recommend anyone traveling to New Orleans to take this tour. It's probably the best at the beginning of your stay so you can go back to the places that you'd like to explore more but we ended up taking the tour at the end of our stay and it totally helped round out our experience. We had a wonderful time! Thank you!!
This was a great tour of New Orleans! We booked it the evening before and the Viator staff were awesome in helping this happen! We selected this tour because it advertised small groups. Ozzy our tour guide picked us up at our hotel right on time and we were the only people on the tour!! This was an additional bonus! Ozzy was knowledgeable about his city and gave us a great perspective of the city, what happened during Katrina and all of the wonderful things that have happened since. It was a wonderful tour and I highly recommend it! It was 3 hours well spent!!!
The van was clean and audio was clear and easily understood. Again...Ozzy was a great tour guide and I highly recommend this tour!
