Full description
See the best of New Orleans in comfort on one handy guided motorized tour. Hop in the minibus and let your guide lead you through the city. No New Orleans city tour would be complete without the French Quarter, the home of Jazz and Mardi Gras. Take in the lively atmosphere with music in the air and colorful, historical buildings. Travel along to Magazine Street, the Big Easy’s thoroughfare that contains plenty of eclectic shops and eateries and meanders in parallel with the Mississippi River. Head across to St Louis Cathedral to see the “Big Easy’s” oldest cemetery, complete with famous and infamous residents. Lake Pontchartrain offers incredible views and photo opportunities. See the Lower Ninth Ward, one of the places hit by Hurricane Katrina. Spot some typical steamboat houses here and remnants of Louisiana's darker history – the sugar cane plantations and colonial buildings. After your whistle-stop tour with your live guide, get dropped off at your New Orleans hotel.

    This was an excellent overview tour in a comfortable minibus. Our tour guide Charlotte was really good and struck just the right balance of sight-seeing, history, socio-political commentary, Hurricane Katrina info, and music & restaurant recommendations and laced together with a great sense of humor. Two stops - one to walk a bit around one of the cemeteries and the other at City Park where you could get a treat at Cafe du Monde and use the restroom. We just loved it! Well worth the price!!

    This was a very comprehensive tour of New Orleans. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the entire area and presented the information in a way that kept it interesting and relevant. He welcomed questions and was able to answer them all. He was very respectful and friendly. Made everyone feel comfortable.

    The tour guide, Matt, and the driver (female) were both very knowledgeable about New Orleans and the current and past history of the area. They made the trip fun and informative. The cemetery was extremely interesting and learning about the areas and outlying places to visit was a plus! I would highly recommend taking time to do this bus tour. It was well worth every cent and a lot of fun.
