Our tour was on December 5 and I seem to talk about at least once a day. This is by far the best tour in New Orleans. Jonathan is extremely knowlegable, super outgoing and friendly as well as comedic. His tour takes you all over the French Quarter as well as through the Garden District and beyond. This city has...

This was the most fun tour!! Jonathan actually took our family on this tour after his booking company mistakenly booked him tours on Thanksgiving day. That's dedication!! We'll probably try to do this tour again and again!!

Our tour guide was an expert in everything film and television in New Orleans. He knew all the locations where they were currently filming and which stars were in town. The tour included great movie clips and interesting factoids. A great value and a wonderful tour of New Orleans.

I actually won my tour via online contest. But I certainly wouldn't have minded paying for it! It was so fun. Jonathan was so funny, knowledgeable and made it a creative experience. Luckily we had an 80 degree, Dec. 1st day, so that was a treat!! We were able to stop once and take a break. 2-3 hour tours depending... More

Our tour guide and the owner of the company was passionate about his love of movies and seemed to really be enjoying himself while giving us this tour which made it so much better.

My friends and I arrived on November 11th, 2014 and wanted to do something different and interesting. Jonathan Ray does a fantastic job providing information about the recent booming movie and TV industry. He makes the tour very entertaining with video clips and trivia. I would definitely do this again the next time I come back.

We went on this tour October 30th and absolutely loved it. You can tell Jonathan loves what he is doing and his knowledge of movies and TV is astounding. We went all over New Orleans to different movie and TV sites that have been filmed in NOLA. Of course, our favorite was the location where American Horror Story was filming... More

My husband and I drove to New Orleans from NJ and we didn't have much time in NOLA but I am glad we fit this tour in. Johnathan is very knowledgable and can fit anyone's movie/tv style. We had a lot of fun and had the chance to see NCIS filming and American horror story's jessica Lange come out of... More
