Great way to see and hear about the city. Hopping on and off worked and allowed us to shop and get to our vehicle. Didn't have to worry about parking. Three day pass is the way to go

A great value. This is the best way to get around NOLA. We rode the full route without getting off on the first day. On the second day we did the garden and cemetary tours. We also went to Mardi Gras World. On the third day we went shopping. We experienced 5 tour guides and enjoyed 4 of the 5.

We really enjoyed the flexibility of the hop-on-hop-off bus. After we got the lay of the land we walked everywhere but it is a good way to see where you want to go visit again.

We made a smart decision to use the Hop-On-Hop-Off convenience to acclimate ourselves to the city.
Once we had our bearings, we were able to plot our time and destinations very efficiently. The guides were quite helpful, informative and entertaining. Apart from the heavy traffic at times, which was understandable, I would definitely recommend the Hop-On-Hop-Off to any first time visitor.
