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.

This was a great tour! The company was very helpful with my last-minute reservations. I loved that they picked us up at our hotel, and dropped us off there afterward. Wanda was a great tour guide and driver, and we saw and learned so many interesting things. I learned a lot about the Katrina flooding, and, although it was sad, I enjoyed seeing the sites she showed us. Interesting that no tours are allowed in the Lower 9th Ward, but we still saw a lot and got good info. Nice small van, too. There were 9 of us.

We had a wonderful tour with Ozzy this week. The tour took us to the key sights with amazing insider information about the Hurricane damage and flooding. The bus was very comfortable and air-conditioned. We saw the Lakeside area and many of the flood damaged areas and homes in 9th Ward. The French Quarter was well covered with plenty of details and history about the varieties of architecture and many aspects of City Park where there was a stop for coffee and beignets and a stroll around the Sculpture Garden at City Park, which is definitely worth a visit.
Ozzy answered all of our questions clearly and with tons of additional info.
The visit to the cemetery and in-depth details of the burial styles and techniques was very informative and very interesting.
Would definitely highly recommend this tour for a historical and in-depth view of New Orleans, we found it to be very comprehensive and interesting and would not hesitate to say that Ozzy has to be the best guide we have come across in our travels.
We left Ozzy with tons of recommendations for restaurants and things to do, we will continue to enjoy New Orleans, what a great city, lots to see and do here!
