I highly recommend this tour. It’s just the right amount of time, and covers a lot of geography. If you’re fortunate enough to get Kris (with a “K”), as your guide, you’ve really hit the jackpot. He has a great personality, and makes the tour...More

Kris provided humorous yet incisive commentary. He did an especially good job of explaining the impact of Katrina and the morbid details of the city’s cemeteries.

Perfect timing, just long enough to be informative yet not too long to get boring. Highly impressed with Kris!

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Yes, it does. Very interesting too as you see the place where levees were breached and rebuilding efforts.
