Great personalized tour by a knowledgeable, professional, friendly guide, Mike. We toured the beach area, had a nice cup of coffee, drove around town, and visited the Marine Mammal Rescue Center. Would recommend!

As an American diplomat that was posted and recently evacuated from China, I came to New Orleans not knowing much about the city. I signed up for a full day tour with Urban Adventures through Marriott Bonvoy activities which included a food tour, a cocktail tour, and a jazz tour. I was instantly impressed after the food tour with Butch where I learned about the French Quarter, history of NO, cuisine styles. I tasted the gumbo, fritters, Bloody Mary, gator sausage, the famous beignet, Muffuletta, and both original and cafe au latit creamy praline. Butch showed us the places locals go to and avoided tourist areas. This was followed by the cocktail tour with Sophie. She was awesome! Very down to earth and knowledgeable of the best local cocktails there is to know. I had the the famous frozen Irish coffee, the Hurricane, the Sazerac, French 75, and an off the menu drink at the Bombay Club. Sophie talked about her experiences after moving here and fell in love with NOLA. Quite admirable! Finally, Sophie handed me off to Shane who did my jazz tour. We stared at the Louis Armstrong Park / Congo Square, then went to J&M Recording Studio (Now the Lost Sock), 1st Jazz Museum (Now St. Pierre Hotel), Buffa's Lounge (Saw the Ella Fitzgerald- inspired singer, Meryl Zimmerman) and Maison (Saw The Shotgun Jazz Band). Shane was extremely knowledgeable about the history of jazz and told us inspiring stories of Louis Armstrong, Buddy Bolden, Cosimo Matassa, Roy Brown (Good Rockin' Tonight), and Little Richard (Tutti Frutti). Both Sophie and Shane sent me a personalized follow up email after the tour with additional interesting facts and places to tour. I highly recommend visitors to consider signing up for the full day tour where you get to hit the truly best places the crescent city has to offer!

I had booked the kayak, Dana point trip but had to change days to prevent cancellation due to the unavailability of the guide for the day I selected. I enjoyed the walk with Gene who was very knowledgeable but was disappointed to learn we would not get to visit the ocean institute which was part of the original tour. I was charged for kayaking and admissions that never occurred and was not given the option for a credit for these things I missed due to the change from full day to half day tour by the company. I feel this company should have been more clear as I had to constantly call for meeting time etc. and should have given a credit for those things I thought would be included. I overpaid for this. If you book with this company make sure you know what you are going to get for your money and cancel if it is not what you intended to see.

Tom was our guide for about a 4-hour walking tour of Laguna Beach and the Crystal Cove State Park. He knew the history of the area; he showed us the wonderful public murals and other art work; we stopped at the candy store and the Shake Shak; he was warm and welcoming. It was a delightful way to experience an overview of the area. Worth every penny!

Urban Adventures has become an absolute must for me everywhere I go as they always have the best tours and quality, So for my first time to NOLA, I went with their 3 in 1 combo tour. Keep in mind, this is 3 different tours with 3 different guides chained together. Some people seem to not like this, but it doesn't bother me in any way. The day started with their morning food adventure. Angela was our guide and was great. She was very friendly and open to suggestions and very knowledgeable. We got to have all kinds of food and bits of history thrown in. This segment started at about 10:30 and lasted roughly 2.5 hours. We covered a lot in the French Quarter and was a great way to get familiar with things for a return to the area. Next up was the cocktail tour at about 2pm and lasted bout 2.5 hours. Our guide Sophie was incredible. We went to quite a few unique places and everything was amazing. It was very chill and we had a great time trying all kinds of different drinks in amazing places. Lastly was the jazz tour at 5:30 and lasted about 2.5 hours. I was the only one during this portion. My guide Kevin was great. He is also a musician, so he was very into the jazz scene and had a lot of good suggestions. There was a lot of history attached too which I really liked. In conclusion, this was an all day adventure with a lot of amazing experiences and people. If you're interested in an all in one NOLA experience, you really can't go wrong here. Urban Adventures always has the best adventures. You definitely won't be disappointed with this one.
