We saw snippets of New Orleans and surrounding areas that we would have had difficulty seeing otherwise. The visit to the Laura Plantation was particularly informative and rich. Thank you to Dianne, who gave us so much descriptive information about all aspects of New Orleans!

We took the Swamp Boat, Oak Alley and Laura Plantation Tour. What a great day. The tour guide Ellen was fantastic and very informative and knowledgeable. We were in a small group of 8 for the day and think we were out for around 8-9 hours. I wasn't really interested in the swamp boat tour but the guide we had... More

We took 2 tours with this company (City/Katrina, and Grand Tour with airboat). Both guides (Niji and Cat respectively) were wonderful, informative, and pleasant. Each filled us with the passion and knowledge that adds something more to a tour. We felt we were with old friends who were catching us up on this wonderful city. The pre-tour arrangements were flawless... More

We booked the New Orleans City and Estate Tour. We were lucky enough to get Catha as our tour guide. Her knowledge of the city and its history was immeasurable. This was more of a passion than a job for her. She was second to none; tourist and visitors would be fortunate to have her as their guide. Highly recommended!

Very informative and accommodating guide; small group. We old folks appreciated the stepping stool. Maps we're also helpful to understand the city's growth and impact of Katrina.

I booked the Grand Tour and Niji was our guide. I cannot recommend this daytrip enough. I enjoyed the visit to the swamps and the local guides at the plantations were very good as well. A lovely day!

I am writing to say how much I enjoyed my swamp and plantation tour that I took on Friday, August 29, 2014, in New Orleans. This tour will have amazing life time memories for me. I especially want to thank Ginnie, my tour guide! Her knowledge of the area and the specifics of the plantations were amazing!! My next visit... More

I did the swamp boat, Oak Alley and Laura plantation tour. My guide was Ginnie who was really friendly and informative from the minute I was picked up at my hotel to the minute I was dropped off again at the end of the day. As she was a local who had lived in NO all her life she had... More

We booked the Laura Plantation tour while I was visiting NOLA with my parents and my girlfriend. My parents do not speak English, so we asked if they could offer a Spanish speaking guide. For an extra $100, we got Virginia, who gave the tour in both languages. Our trip to NOLA would not have been the same without this... More
