It gave us a great overview of the city. Rode two different times with different guides. Definite difference in the guides. Hope you get a good one. Or jump off and see who you get on the next bus. Would be nice to have reverse route buses so you don’t have to travel the whole way around to revisit an area that you may want to return to explore.

World War II Museum was a great unexpected find. You can spend your entire day there. Also we did get to see things along the way that we wouldn’t have otherwise. The Louis Armstrong Park looks great and I would love to see it next time I’m in New Orleans.

The speakers on our bus didn’t work, we swap buses and we still couldn’t hear everything guide was saying. The call was also working on us on both buses.
