I went on this tour on the last day of my trip to New Orleans and it was fantastic. Our tour guide could not have done more to accommodate everything we wanted to see and even added extra bits in that we were interested in. He was very knowledgable about filming and we saw three things being filmed in the... More

We really enjoyed this tour. We almost missed this tour as it was difficult to find on the internet. The van has a small screen in front of each seat. The van is air-conditioned (and only holds about 10 or 12 people so the tour is highly personal.)Jonathon even brought complimentary bottles of water for us. Jonathon is extremely knowledgeable,...

We really enjoyed the movie tour with Jonanthan and I'm so glad we took it as I learnt a lot about filming in New Orleans that I never knew. Being a fan of all types of films and TV shows something like this is ideal and I would have given 5 stars if there had been times when you could... More

I was looking for a less conventional tour but at the same time something that would show us around . This was the perfect tour and both of my teens enjoyed every minute of it. I highly recommend

A good birds eye view of NOLA some stars homes and shooting for NCIS. Tour guide was very personable and it is a great thing to do if you are not very mobile as there is no walking.

Jonathan gave us a great tour of not only movies made in NOLA but also the history of the city. He also gave us some very good ideas on doing some other things on our vacation. Being a self appointed movie buff I was very impressed with Jonathan's movie knowledge. Plus you can't beat a Hard Target clip, VAN DAMMAGE!

Jonathan is cool, funny and isn't afraid of tough questions. He is accommodating and we will do the tour again. We are anti tour but he took a van full of our family and made for some memorable times. Thanks J!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
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 District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
