5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

My husband and I enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was very personable and knew a lot about the history of New Orleans. We learned how the city became divided into the French Side Quarters and the American side through the Louisiana Purchase. The tour guided drove us through Charles Street where we got to see original homes that were built in the 17 and 18 century. The tour of the Saint Louis Cemetery No.1 was very informative. We also one of the area that was affected by Hurricane Katrina.
The Steamboat Natchez tour showed the beautiful shore line of New Orleans and the importance of the Mississippi River to the area. The Captain was knowledgeable and we got to see some of the industry that is depended on this mighty river. It was a nice relaxing boat tour. I definitely would recommend this tour. It's a beautiful way to spend the day and learned about the history of this great city.

This is one of the best tours I've taken in NOLA, and i have taken many. Our guide Kendrell forgive me if I spelled that wrong, was not just informative, but entertaining as well, and you can really tell he cares about his city. I highly recommend this tour to anyone going!

Missed the city tour. Got to the send off point too late. Wished a refund would have been possible, but know it's not their policy. We were able to go on the steamboat and it was outstanding! The narrator on the boat was very informative. You have to try the buffet lunch. A great total experience!

My 12 yo daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our driver Ken was the best. He was funny, knowledgeable and personable. We went over time on the City Tour and I was afraid that we would miss the Natchez cruise, but they waited for us! The meal wasn't anything wonderful, but it was fun to have lunch on the steamboat. The boat had a band and information playing which was like a city tour, but on the water. We would do it again. Very informative and fun!
