New Orleans Anniversary Trip

Although we have traveled to New Orleans numerous times, we scheduled the hop-on-hop-off bus for the first time. Our guide John was excellent, as well as, our driver Sasha - they were both great, polite, professional, informative & funny. I would highly recommend this tour!
