This is a great way to see New Orleans, especially if you are short on time. The people that work there are great. Daniel did an incredible job of getting us situated prior to getting on the bus and the guide was fantastic (guy with a beard and glasses, sorry, I can't remember his name). Great value and great recommendations provided by the staff!

This was a great way tto one- get around but mainly two- learn things about the different arras and history to see where you want to soend more time! Time so well spent!

We love to take a Hop-On Hop-Off Bus ride on our first day in a new city. This system did not disappoint either. We did hit some major road work that prevented the bus from going to 3 of the standard stops, but that was not the tour companies fault. We still saw what we wanted and we were still able to hop-off and visit some key sights we wanted to visit. I love the NOLA Buses as they were all covered with canvas tops that prevented sunburn, but still gave you a cooling, open air ride. A terrific way to get your bearings in a new city.

We loved the Hop-on-Hop-off Tour! We had never been to NOLA before, and the bus tour guides are very informative. We learned a lot, and the convenience of getting on and off whenever we wanted was wonderful.

I did the 3 day pass and it is well worth the expense and I will do this again in other cities where available. All of the guides were excellent and all slightly different even if you were taking the same route you would lean something different.

The tour leader was funny, and asked questions so as to show us areas that interested us. It was a great overview of the city for the start of our visit.

The experience was great! We would have love the experience more but it rained the entire time we were in New Orleans so it was difficult to enjoy it like we should have.

Great way to see the city and also hear about the history associated with it. Helped in planning what we wanted to see and do.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2018

We booked this tour thinking it would be our source of transportation while in New Orleans. We ended up using it only for the parts of town ie Garden District, World War II museum that we were not able to walk to. The tour is like all other hop on/offs. A nice added feature was a free Garden District walking tour and self guided cemetery tour. I love the ease of use and practicality of this type of tour!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2018

always my favorite way to go around and get to know a new place before I decide which places to concentrate on in the next days of a trip!
