“Nice Orientation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The price of this tour $45 pp. We found it on TripAdvisor so we had little idea what the tour entailed. We tried to tour the French Quarter but Saturday crowds were blocking traffic so we headed to a cemetery and the Wards that were devastated by Katrina. Much of the tour focused on the flood areas. Enjoyed the stop for coffee and beignets and the beautiful homes and garden district but would have appreciated the opportunity to ask questions.

“Informative and entertaining! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

This is a great tour to see and get a feel for the city of New Orleans. Learned quite a bit from our excellent tour guide John. He was very kind and answered all of our questions with more then enough detail. I highly recommend this tour if you are in town and wanting to do a tour.

“Excellent Value- Very Imformative Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I think it really comes down to the tour guide- in this case it was John Hall, who has received glowing reviews here previously. John was extremely pleasant, entertaining, and above all knowledgeable. Oh, and a good driver as well! We were picked up at the hotel exactly at the specified time, and the tour was just the right length. John's knowledge of the history combined with his personal experiences held our attention during the entire trip, which went very quickly. If you are looking for a tour that shows you a lot in a short amount of time, this is the tour for you. But I would ask for John...

“Great 3-hour tour of NOLA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Our driver / tour guide John was very good. He took us around French Quarter, Garden District, City Park, Ninth Ward, Cemetery, etc. He explained very unusual burial practices in NOLA. He stopped at the city park and we had a chance to see excellent NOLA Museum of Art Sculpture Garden. He answered a lot of our questions.
Overall very informative 3 hours. Check out available Groupon, which makes the tour very affordable.

“Really wonderful city tour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Our tour guide was very informative. He espcially wanted us to understand what the city was and its uniqueness. He fully explained the burial process. He also was very interested in telling us about the city's music heriatage and the new musician's village.
