We were looking for a different tour and saw this. Enjoyed it. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Got to see the places where several parts of movies were shot. We have taken several of these movie tours in various parts of the country and always enjoy them.

My family and I re-scheduled our vacation to New Orleans in part because we wanted to take the New Orleans Movie Tour and it wasn't offered during the dates that we originally planned to visit. Jonathan Ray, our tour guide, was fantastic!! Before our tour even started, he texted us to let us know that NCIS: New Orleans was filming... More

Somebody finally got it right! I live in New Orleans and have often heard tour guides pointing out sites to people where movies were filmed. But an actual movie tour -- seems like a natural, right? After all, New Orleans is now rightfully called Hollywood South. But how do you put a tour like this together? Jonathan Ray of New... More

My sister and I did this tour because we grew up with so many movies and still love movies today. This tour was great and right up our alley! We ended up having a private tour, and the guide, Jonathan, was so personable and knowledgeable. He repeatedly asked if we had any additional questions or if we had any requests.... More

This was an excellent tour of movie locations all over the city of New Orleans. As you watched a clip of a movie, you were parked right in front of the actual building. We saw over 30 movie locations during this 2 hour tour. We even saw a movie location where they were actually filming. The owner and tour guide,... More

I mainly booked this tour for my husband because he is such a movie buff. I usually see the 1st 5 minutes of a movie, and then am asleep. Both of us really enjoyed this tour. Jonathan is very knowledgable, and it was great to see the movie clip in the location where it was shot. He even through in... More

This was a great tour. Jonathan is very knowledgable and kept everyone engaged. He even remembered our names and favorite actors! I learned a ton about "the biz" and will now start looking for no parking signs in every city I go to. The van was clean and air conditioned, which in July, was greatly appreciated. He even stopped several... More

When visiting New Orleans for the first time I knew it was a popular location for the big studios to shoot their movies at so I was hoping there would be some kind of movie tour. With some googling I soon found this tour and booked a ticket immediately for the next day. For a movie buff this is a... More

Since our family loves movies so much, we knew we had to take this tour! Jonathan did not disappoint these "Tennesseeans"! He knows so much about movies, actors, and New Orleans. We saw a good bit of the city in the process of seeing where some really interesting movie scenes were filmed. Would definitely recommend this tour!
