Even though I've visited New Orleans several times, I never thought about all of the movies and TV shows that are shot here. This tour was great before it even started as the guide contacted us the day before the tour and told us where NCIS: New Orleans was filming so we could go by to see it. Jonathan was... More

We had a pleasant two hour tour of tinsel town south, down in NOLA. Our guide and owner was Johnathon. Johnathon is well suited for this enterprise as he has done some acting and photography, and knows his way around town. You tour the city watching clips of the movies inside the van while seeing the actual filming locations outside.... More

I loved this tour. I was surprised at the number of movies and television shows that have been shot in New Orleans. Jonathan, the tour guide, knew his material. He was fun and considerate. We had a small group and he offered to tailor the sites to our interests. He was able to adjust the clips and his speech as... More

Jonathan Ray is the Owner / Operator of The Original New Orleans Movie & Tours tour! This is really a nice way to spend a couple of hours while visiting the New Orleans French Quarter area. You get to see where numerous movies were filmed, and also clips of those movies. There is no walking in this tour (which was... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Jonathan was a great guide and really knew his movies. We were lucky enough to come across a movie location which was interesting as it showed just how much time goes into making a 10 second scene. This tour would suit all ages, it was 2 hours of great fun.

My family really enjoyed this tour, including my 4 and 9 year old sons.It kept a good pace and showed countless film locations and celebrity homes.Having been raised in NOLA, I thought I knew most of what the tour would show us, but I was wrong! I saw the city from a different vantage point. I would take the tour... More

I've been saying for years that NOLA needed a movie tour and was so excited when I found this one! Johnathan has all the ins and outs of the NOLA Movie scene and even gives you pointers on how to spot filming locations! Don't miss this tour if you have a chance to take it. I'll go again next time... More

We took this tour our last day in Nola and so glad we did. Jonathan was great and picked us up across the street from Cafe Mundo. Tour was great. Van has DVD players on back of each seat. Jonathan will take you to a place where a scene was filmed in a movie and then play the video. Jonathan... More

Who knew all these movies were filmed in New Orleans? Very informative tour - was travelling with two movie buffs - and they were also surprised at some on the movie clips we saw. Jonathan also took us to drive by some celebrity homes. Great tour!!

Learned about this tour from Tripadvisor. I was in New Orleans only for a few hours (getting from and to Houston by bus the same day), and it seemed to be a good opportunity to learn more about New Orleans movie industry, which happen to be large and thriving. Along with a multitude of places where various older movies were... More
