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

Tour guide Jonathan is amazing. His knowledge and enthusiasm about New Orleans film industry made the trip memorable. The tour van is comfortable; behind the seat screens and the guide are easy to see and hear. Extra bonus with this tour is seeing and learning more about portions of NOLA otherwise missed. As movie aficionados, we appreciated seeing film locations... More

Tour begins across the street from Cafe du Monde where you board a van that would seat about 10 guests, with an individual video screen for each. Jonathan, the owner/driver is very knowledgeable about movies and about New Orleans. The tour includes dozens of stops where Jonathan gives details about a particular movie scene that was filmed there, while you... More

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
