    I would highly reccomend this pass to anyone visiting New Orleans and wants to cram as much as they can fit into their trip! It was super easy to buy the pass. Prior to your trip you MUST call each place on the pass you want to visit to reserve your spot in that activity. When you get to the activity, most places just asked to scan the QR code. The only place that we needed to get a physical ticket was the Creole Queen Paddlewheeler Cruise. I would highly reccomend the Sinners & Saints Tour from Hauted History Tours, The Cooking Demonstration at the New Orleans School of Cooking, and the Ultimate Swamp Adventures Tour. This pass was absolutley worth the money!

    We loved the bike tour! Milan was our guide and was amazing. Our youngest is 11 and he did great on the tour. I was a little nervous about riding in traffic but once we got started it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be. We learned about the history of the city and French Quarter. It’s about an 8 mile bike ride and we made lots of stops along the way. Highly recommend!

    New Orleans city tour was excellent. I recommend anyone coming to the city to take it to get the background if the city's history. I find the city in current times is pre Katrina and post Katrina which opens one's eyes. We even had a local citizen on the tour who said she learned so much about her home. You will get a bonus if David is your tour driver. He is a gem!!!

This tour was wonderful. The guy was knowledgeable and you were sitting on a bus with the air conditioner on a very hot day. We saw places we haven't seen before coming to New Orleans are 3rd time.

The tour was educational and the tour guide was humorous which made the experience a delight.
