Exceeded my expectations. I would recommend to everyone I know.
I learned the reality of the destruction caused by Katrina and the amazing rebuild.
This tour is a must for anyone wanting to understand the effect of Hurricane Katrina on the City of New Orleans and also to understand how the Army Corp of Engineers blundered in their estimate of the levee's. Our guide was Daniel and he lived through it and was most passionate about Katrina and his City. The stop at the Katrina Memorial is sad but a wonderful way to remember the ones that lost their lives and for 3 years could not be identified.
This tour was very instructive in comparing what the U.S. Congress did for New York when Wall Street was destroyed on 9/11 with when New Orleans was flooded by Army Corps incompetence and thousands of poor blacks lost their lives and homes while the French Quarter was spared. It seems that most non-thinking Americans believe that George Bush did us a favor getting us into the longest war in American history without raising taxes to pay for it, while spending one-millionth the amount to rebuild New Orleans WITHOUT poor black people - so Americans can have a nicer time in the French Quarter !
I will always remember our tour guide, she was incredible...to give such a detailed account of the events that took place in 2005 and adding her own story. Very informative and educating..for all those who are not just interested in 'having fun' in Nola.
This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. The guide was born and grew up in New Orleans. He was a reporter for 40 years and covered Hurricane Katrina and its recovery. We stopped a couple of times - once for a restroom break. The bus was air-conditioned. Great value. We highly recommend.
The guide was great and told us so much about the areas that were hit extremely hard. It was a I have a fondness for New Orleans, so when Katrina hit I was glued to the TV watching and learning about it. The guide actually gave us so much more information of events during the hurricane and after. Highly recommend it.
Great tour, very informative. The best and most interesting thing we did while in New Orleans!
This tour was amazing!
Very informative trip led by a knowlegeable guide who was passionate about the city and who shared his lived experiences generously.
This tour was informative and educational. We learned about the reasons for the floods initiated by Hurricane Katrina. It was sad driving through all the affected neighborhoods and remembering what we watched on TV. Now we were there.
Our guide was John. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. Although the tour was introspective, John was able to interject humor at appropriate times. Those moments were appreciated.
Our driver was cautious and professional.
Midway through the tour we stopped for a break. Some passengers opted to tour the sculpture garden, others chose the very fast coffee shop and bathroom.
This tour offers so much more than a typical city tour. It shows you history.
