This was an enjoyable tour with lots of fun facts about NOLA. Our guide, Ken, was great and very knowledgeable. And, in case you were wondering, there is a restroom break.

The tour was exciting. The bus driver Jude knew the city and its history which made for good storytelling.
The various stops along the tour Jackson square, cemetery, city park, shotgun houses, Katrina damaged houses, etc. were great but made more interesting by Jude's detailed and in-depth historical contexts.

This tour was very entertaining. Our bus driver/tour guide I believe his name was Glenn gave nonstop information about the city infused with history, jokes, and pop culture tidbits. We stopped at St. Louis No 3 Cemetary and the City Park/Sculpture Garden. This tour is a great way to see the city, including the outskirts of the French Quarter.

Very informative and enjoyable tour. This tour was absolutely terrific due to the driver/guide Gerald. He gave non-stop information, while injecting humor and using a professional delivery. not monotone, like some other tours we have been on. Also he even re-capped at the end of the tour! Also gave restaurant recommendations.

My 3 sisters and I took the New Orleans City Bus Tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our driver was so gracious and so informative. Really told the history of New Orleans. Could not have learned the history on our own. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
