This was actually really fun. They have little screens that show you the clips contemporaneous with the venue you are seeing. Arrive early and enjoy a Beignet at Cafe DuMont before your tour. They will customize the tour if there are particular places you would like to see from the movies.

I loved it! This tour is great for movie buffs! We saw the sites where numerous Hollywood movies were filmed and even got to drive past the set of a filming television show. Jonathan was a great guide and definitely knows his movie history. This tour was definitely worth it and I am so glad that I went!

Better late than never..... although the day started with a technical mic glitch, Jon was quick to point out the shows and movies that were filming close by that we could visit whilst he got this issue fixed. This meant that we were able to see Lucas Black while filming NCIS: New Orleans. Which was absolutely amazing. We were then... More

Jonathan is an amazing tour guide, one of the best we had during our stay! He was there right on schedule to pick us up for the movie tour and he kept us entertained throughout the tour! We knew before the tour of many of the movies set in New Orleans, but had no idea the number of movies that... More

From movies in the 50s/60s to Jurassic World in 2015, New Orleans is often referred to as Hollywood South. Jonathan is a great guide and... More

Having never been to New Orleans before, I thought this would be a great way to tour the city while learning about movies that had been filmed there. Let me start out by saying we were not disappointed! Our guide, Jonathon, was so humorous that he had me laughing most of the time. I thought he was funny like Jimmy... More

My husband and have done several tours in New Orleans and this is one of the best. Jon is very passionate about movies and TV and it comes through in this tour. He made sure that all requests were met, I loved getting to see the AHS Coven house! Sign-up today, you'll love it!

My Mom and I took this tour because of all the great reviews it had and, it was amazing! Jon was awesome. The other person taking the tour didn't show up so, we had a personal tour. Jon took us everywhere and even asked us places where we wanted to go. He was funny and knew everything about anything that... More
