Pick up from where you're staying really simplifies things. This is such an inclusive tour of the entire city. Tons of history, culture and current information. The tour guide, Wanda, was professional, knowledgeable and entertaining! Don't miss this intimate view of a fabulous city.

Our guide Wanda picked us up at our hotel just after 10. She was wonderful and had a wealth of info to share with us. There was a total of 9 on our tour and it really helped that Wanda had one of those headset microphones so we wouldn't miss a thing she was saying. Loved the stop in city park as well as the beautiful homes in the garden district. Drove past some of the areas affected by Hurr. Katrina and saw many of the markers showing just how high those water levels were. We even took some of Wanda's dining recommendations. New orleans cookery is outstanding! Such an informative tour that I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a good look at this great city.

Wonderful tour and fantastic experience! Teddy was so knowledgeable about this wonderful city and we're so glad we took the time to go on the tour. I highly recommend anyone traveling to New Orleans to take this tour. It's probably the best at the beginning of your stay so you can go back to the places that you'd like to explore more but we ended up taking the tour at the end of our stay and it totally helped round out our experience. We had a wonderful time! Thank you!!

This was a great tour of New Orleans! We booked it the evening before and the Viator staff were awesome in helping this happen! We selected this tour because it advertised small groups. Ozzy our tour guide picked us up at our hotel right on time and we were the only people on the tour!! This was an additional bonus! Ozzy was knowledgeable about his city and gave us a great perspective of the city, what happened during Katrina and all of the wonderful things that have happened since. It was a wonderful tour and I highly recommend it! It was 3 hours well spent!!!

The van was clean and audio was clear and easily understood. Again...Ozzy was a great tour guide and I highly recommend this tour!

We took this tour the morning after we arrived - it was well worth it - the driver was very informative, knew the areas, gave a lot of information and it gave us a great idea of where we wanted to go back and see more of those areas.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

Half of our group did this tour. Loved it. Very informational and it was nice to get out of the Fr. Qtr. to see the rest of New Orleans, see some very interesting architecture, a lovely park, stop for coffee plus lots of history and finally understanding how and where the levees failed during Hurricane Katrina. Very glad we did this tour.

This was a great tour ! We were picked up at our doorstep French Quarter RV Resort and ushered all over New Orleans seeing the sights. This is definitely a tour you should do first day you're in NO so that you can pick up on the places you want to visit in the remaining time you have there. Our tour guide was prompt, courteous and full of knowledge that he shared. He was very easy to listen to and took questions whenever they came up. The van was comfortable and the small group size was great ! We highly recommend this tour.
