My husband, adult son and I appreciated Jonathan's unique and quite clever approach to his themed sightseeing excursion. As we toured different filming locations; our individual monitors showed the actual movie clips bringing everything together. Our eyes were certainly opened up to the abundance of film productions in the area! I highly recommend this tour whether you are a movie... More

I absolutely loved this tour. Johnathan is the bomb.com! He has a great personality. Great tour -RAIN or SHINE!! It's the one thing you can plan before you even get there. You can start off with breakfast at Cafe Du'Monde because he picks you up right across the street. You can send requests before-hand and he will try his best... More

We had a great time on the Original New Orleans Movie Tour - different from the typical city tour which is strictly historical, this tour blended New Orleans history with stops where many famous movies were filmed, and showed a clip of the film at the actual filming site. Very interesting and especially enjoyable for my 17 year old twin... More

I loved this tour, and have been telling people about it since I got back home. Jonathan drove us around the city, stopping to show us where various movies and TV shows had been filmed, then showing us the actual clips on monitors in the van. He tailored the specific stops to our interests. I didn't know there are so... More

In a city like New Orleans, which has been dubbed "Hollywood South", television shows and movies are often being filmed right under the noses of tourists who are on their fast-paced walk to get to the aquarium before it closes. However, if one just takes a moment to look about, Hollywood vans and lighting rigs are becoming a pretty common... More

If you are interested in movies, this is a fun tour to take. The guide Jonathan will take you through various different areas in New Orleans to show you where certain scenes were filmed. You first get to see the movie clip on a screen in front of you and then he points out where it was filmed. You also... More

Jonathan was a very entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide for "Hollywood South". We learned a lot, more than we expected. The concept of watching a video of the scene while at the location it was filmed is very cool. We were the only two people on the tour so we had a great time chatting with Jonathan and learning about... More
