My fiance and I just returned from a trip to New Orleans. We purchased tickets to this tour through Groupon. Our tour guide was Billy, who was so informative and fun! He truly seems to enjoy his job and his love for his city is also evident. We took this tour on our very first day in New Orleans as... More

A city tour plus much more. We were picked up at 201 St Charles Ave. by John and after a couple of other picks up we began our tour. We say some of the beautiful homes of both the Garden District and the French quarter as well as the devastation wrought from hurricane Katrina. Particularly interesting were the solar homes...

While visiting New Orleans this past week, other hotel guests were raving about a city tour they had taken with Southern Style Tours and recommended we take the tour. My wife and I decided to call the number and book seats for the following morning. Much to our surprise they were picking up just outside of our hotel and the... More

Let me start off by saying that our tour guide, John, was absolutely superb. Now that is southern charm and humor done right! On a gloomy and rainy day, we called Southern Style Tours an hour before the last tour of the day. To ensure they could accommodate another 2 guests (my fiancé and I) the rep quickly said I'll...

In December, my fiance and I planned a quick 3 day getaway to New Orleans to escape the stresses that seemed to be accompanying wedding planning in our home of the Washington, D.C. area. On a whim, I purchased a Groupon for the Southern Style Tours City Tour while looking up things to do on our quick visit. My fiance... More

Our tour guide, John, was very knowledgeable, pleasant and easy to understand. Touched on a little of everything and gave good suggestions for the rest of our stay. The bus was airconditioned and confortable.

We knew we wanted to do a city tour of some sort and were looking at a few different companies. When a Groupon deal came up for this company (more than half off the full price) our choice was easy. We took the 3 hour city tour with Jason as our tour guide. He was fantastic - full of great... More

This tour was great! We learned so much about the city. Our tour guide Jason was very well versed, very knowledgeable and surprisingly, very humorous. It was an extremely hot day, so the air conditioned vehicle was quite pleasant. A few highlights included the French Quarter, the cemeteries (which were amazingly unique), the gardens, the devastation caused by Katrina and... More

Even though we took tour on our last day (best as other's say if you do it first) we enjoyed the overview of 3 hour tour. Jason was our Guide and covered so much in an interesting and entertaining way. Worth the trip.
