We thoroughly, and surprisingly, enjoyed this tour. Thanks to Lee, our guide, who was a fabulous, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and very funny guy. He brought the cemetery to life! ( Sorry, I couldn't help myself! )

It was 55 degrees. Way too cold for an airboat tour. We froze to death. The tour should have canceled.

Our experience with this company was terrific. It was all that it was hyped up to be in the brochures and by the rep. It was an unforgettable experience.

This was an awesome experience and I learned so much about New Orleans history, not only about cemeteries and the dead but also about the French Quarters!

We had a great time with Captain tick tock. He took us all through the bayou. We even got to hold a live alligator who was named either Al or Ali, who knows? The swamp boat itself was a lot of fun.

Great! We have been on several airboat rides through the Everglades, but this one was the most fun. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and the wildlife. He was very experienced and knew this region very well. He was also a...More

This was an interesting and fun tour. Our guide Toast, yes, Toast never stopped giving interesting and informative narrative throughout the entire two hour tour. We would take this tour again. We took the bus haunted history and cemetery tour.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Depending on the handicap, it could be difficult. The boat ramp would work for wheelchairs, but you have to transfer from the dock to the boat on the water, and that could be hazardous. Also, if you use the transport... More

Less than 30 min (depending on traffic of course). But it is not far. We took their bus and it was about 20/25 min. We actually waited longer at the dock itself once we arrived than the drive. It was a great experience- we... More
