My mother and I took this tour, and we both agreed it was unique and fun. Here's what to expect on the tour:
-- A van equipped with flat screen TVs embedded in the seat backs drives to New Orleans movie locations and plays clips from the relevant movie while stopping to view the location.
-- A tour guide who is passionate about movies and specifically movies made in New Orleans. He also is an actor who plays extras and small roles in movies that film locally.
-- A customizable tour: You can tell the tour guide what kind of movies you like prior to the tour, and he will help pull clips to show and identify locations to visit that suit your tastes.
Some other notable positives:
-- The tour guide provided our tour although we were the only two people on the tour. Most tours would cancel and force you to reschedule.
-- The tour guide dropped us off at our hotel despite it being well out of the way.
-- Popcorn and bottled water are provided.
This is a great tour on all accounts, but the tour guide makes it a five-star tour. He is obviously pursuing his dream by creating an enterprise in which he can share his love for movies and let others benefit from his passion. Plus, you will see locations to movies you have watched (and others you have not), and learn a lot about the movie industry in NOLA!
My recommendation - Definitely take this tour, and let him know ahead of time if you have any special requests for movie genres of interest.
