Owner description: Gray Line New Orleans has been showcasing the city since 1924. Locally owned and operated, the Gray Line schedule includes the award winning Original Cocktail Tour. Another top offering is the Ghost Tour, which has been so intensely researched that the hotel with the most reported Ghost sightings in the city has invited Gray Line to produce an exhibit in their hotel. Among our professionally escorted tours are the Super City Tour, Katrina Tours, Swamp & Bayou, Airboat Swamp Tours, Oak Alley & Laura Plantation Tours, Cemetery & Voodoo, French Quarter & Garden District Walking Tours We limit the number of guests on our walking tours to enhance the experience and the view is always better from our luxurious mini-busses and motor coaches. Our Tour Guides are well trained, licensed, and want to share their personal experiences along the way. Morning to evening you can count on Gray Line New Orleans

I would like to commend Grayline Tours on their plantation tours. The opening by the tour director while boarding was great. Our driver pointed out everything there was to see on the way and even re-routed out trip back to take us by more plantations to check out.

We had the Pirate tour with Gray Line and we had a terrific guide – as it was pouring badly, we finished the tour in a Community Coffee shop talking with our guide about Lafitte. Very knowledgeable guide and quite agreeable person. Again thank you for the tour, see you next Christmas vacation.

The walking tour was a great way to see the French Quarter. It started at the Riverfront (near Cafe Du Monde) and ended in Jackson Square. The tour guide, Julie, was very friendly and had an encyclopedic knowledge of both the French Quarter and New Orleans. The tour was filled with fun facts about the architecture, history, and culture of the French Quarter. During my stay, I was also able to take a ride aboard the riverboat Natchez, the last true riverboat on the Mississippi river. The river cruise includes a New Orleans style meal. If you go, take a look through the engine room underneath and then enjoy the sites on both sides of the river. I had an excellent time on this trip.

New Orleans is so much more than just Bourbon Street! Julie gave us a great overview of the city's history and the architecture of the French Quarter. Her love of her hometown made the journey feel like she was sharing her family's story. It started at the riverfront and wound through the streets and ended in Jackson Square at the Cabildo Museum (entrance fee is included in tour).

Margaret's knowledge of the architecture of the mansions in the Garden District and the families who built them was very informative and interesting. We also toured Lafayette Cemetery #1 and learned about the reason for the above ground burials and how the tombs are used. She pointed out homes used in films, such as 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' and current celebrity owned homes, too...Sandra Bullock, John Goodman (his Golden Retriever was in the yard...so pretty!), and Archie Manning's home, where Peyton and Eli grew up.

We use Gray Line in every city we visit and have never been disappointed.
