My fiancé and I bought our tickets the night before. We were thrilled to be seeing Nola from a bus, as we knew the city was extremely dangerous even before we arrived. As soon as we arrived at Nola, we quite literally had not even walked a few blocks when we were robbed by a man who physically held us at an ATM machine. We tried to shake it off because we knew we had prepaid for our tour, and we wanted to get to it as to not waste more money. We walked all around Jackson Square, where the first stop is supposed to be, and did not find the stop. When we looked for a contact on the tour’s website, it was out of the UK and we knew they would not be able to tell us where the badly marked pickup location was supposed to be. While looking for the spot (we looked for around 30 minutes), a huge fight broke out in the square and we decided between that, being robbed earlier, and the lack of clear signage to find our bus, we were done and would be leaving the city. We never boarded the bus or scanned our ticket. As soon as I got to my car, I reported what had happened to the tour company and told them we had never boarded the bus. I got an email this morning saying they would not be offering a refund for my $70 ticket that I never got to use. I feel like it was robbed not only on the street, but also by this corporation. Do NOT use, they are not sympathetic unforeseen circumstances (how could we except to be robbed??) and have horrible signage, which leaves you wondering around a dangerous area unable to even find the service you paid for. Would never recommend.

My daughter and I really enjoyed the tour, it was a beautiful day out and we got to see different sights of the city we hadn't seen like the Louis Armstrong Park or St Charles Ave. Thank you to Zelda especially for being such a fun and engaging guide, she really made us understand why this city is so beautiful and rich in history (like the French and American divide on Canal St) and her witty comments were the cherry on top!

Just ok. For the money we did not have a ton of time to hop on and off. I wish the bus ran a little later in the day. We got on around 10:45 and rode completely around for the first time. By the time we hopped off for lunch we only had time for one other stop before the service ended for the day.

I’ve used this service in other cities and it was much better than in NOLA

This is a great way to see the city and learn a lot of history. Alan was the guide on the bus the first day we rode. He really knew New Orleans. Alan was also the guide the day we did the Garden District tour, very informative.
