On April 14th, I went on the movie tour with Jonathan as our guide. There were only 4 people total (including me) on the van. He drove us around for an hour and showed us places from the films Benjamin Button, Django Unchained, etc., and drove us onto the NCIS New Orleans lot, where the actors get makeup done, etc....

If you have any interest in movies, then this tour is a must. Not only was Jonathan our guide very knowledgeable about the film industry in New Orleans, he is a great raconteur about filming in New Orleans and film in general. Several movie clips pepper the trip--where else would one try to copy scenes from Dukes of Hazzard by... More

Jonathan was great. He was not just on time, but was early. I highly recommend this tour. Book this tour early on your stay, and on a weekday, as filming is nearly always on a mon-fri filming schedule/more likely to see something. Also, taking this tour early in our trip really allowed us to situate ourselves/understand the neighborhoods etc. We... More

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.
