Even though it was pouring rain the day of the tour Jonathan's enthusiasm and expertise made this a very fun experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone and plan to take the tour again when I make it back to NOLA!

We were traveling with a group of ladies and some had never been to New Orleans. This tour was a fun way to see all the different neighborhoods in NOLA. Jonathan was a great tour guide with a fun sense of humor that engaged the group in our movie discussion. He would also let you request to visit the sites... More

We wanted a movie tour when we were in NOLA for a conference and we found this company - it was well worth searching the web! The tour was great - including all our favourite movie sites from films and TV filme in the Crescent City. The tour guide was excellent - really funny, friendly and knew lots about films!... More

I totally agree with Travelmom008, this was a great tour and Jonathan Ray was brilliant, I just hope he gets his break in the movies! The tour was good value, entertaining and well orchestrated. Jonathan really reinacted the clips where he could and lined up the van to where the scenes took place. The recreation of the Dukes of Hazzard... More

My husband and I are not up to date on all the newer movies, but we still enjoyed the movie tour from The Original New Orleans Movie Tour very much. Not only did our tour guide know a lot about the movies that have, are, and will be filmed in NO, but he also knew about the television shows such... More

Jonathan is a very good guide. He is informative and funny. He showed our group different sites. In the van there are little mini screens so you can see the video clips so you can imagine yourself in the scene. He pointed out how to find the sets and many other interesting tidbits of information.

Johnathan is awesome at what he does! There happened to be tons of stuff filming the day of our tour; he pointed out how to find the sets and production crews. This is one of the most entertaining tours I have ever been on in NOLA!! I recommend this to everyone. NOLA is the new little Hollywood!

This tour was by far the best I've ever been on in New Orleans. The tour guide, Jonathan, has such a wonderful personality. We met exactly where he stated on our tickets, and even left a little bit earlier than 10 when he saw that everyone got there early. He welcomed us so warmly and got us really excited for... More

We had a blast! It was fun, it was informative, and I loved seeing how active the movie industry is in New Orleans. I had no idea it had gotten that big. We were able to see homes of Brad & Angelina, John Goodman, Sandra Bullock, Anne Rice, etc. We learned how to spot a filming in progress, and even... More
