Walking tours were great and informative. The bus tour was also great. Took us to the main stops around New Orleans. Tour guides were personable.

A great way to get a sampling of the area. It does take 2 hours to do a complete loop. Many of the stops have been moved from their original listing. My he guides we experienced were very informative and knowledge.

We tend to go on a tour the first day in any city to get the lay of the land and possibly change our priorities for later sightseeing. We started by taking the full 18 stop tour and finally got off at the World War II Museum. The guides did an excellent job talking about the history of the areas we went through and individual sites along the ride. We had three different guides and all did a really good job. After the initial ride through the full tour we used the Hop On Hop Off as transportation to various sites on or near the tour route.

Great way to see the city and get an idea of where everything is...what though the last tour bus goes out at about 4:20 so make sure you can get where you intend - if not grab a 'jazzy pass' from the local transit...very cheap and fun. Hop on Hop off guides were knowledgable and fun...

Do this everywhere we go when it is offered. The 3 day pass is 44 and well worth it. Great way to see all the highlights as well as using it for transportation.

Was informative and covered a lot of area. Nice and worth the money. Because the city is so easy to get around. I would maybe not get a three day pass again because the bus only has one route.
