Loved this sightseeing bus! Have done it in several cities. Always good! Guides were great and make sure you stop at the World War II Museum and the Mardi Gras Museum. Both fantastic!

When planning this trip, we chose a hotel near one of the stops listed on the website. Our hotel was also on a street with a cable car so our vehicle never left the hotel parking garage until we were ready to leave town. The tour guides were very helpful when we would ask them which stop do we need to get off so we can see a particular site. We appreciated their opinions on places to eat, which ones were good food at a reasonable price and which ones were good food but more expensive. Every place we ate had delicious food. We definitely recommend this Hop-On Hop-Off tour.
