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.

    While sitting in a cool seat I enjoyed seeing and learning about the City of New Orleans. The guide has 7 generations that have lived here. We covered every part of New Orleans learning all about this area. She told us many stories about Hurricane Katrina. We stopped in the city park and enjoyed coffe and binet. We stopped at a grave yard and learned about the Barisal process. Very interesting.

    Our family of three took the New Orleans City Bus Tour. We took it early in our trip because I thought it may give us more ideas for the remainder of our time in town. Couldn't have been more right. We were picked up at our hotel and began the tour at Jackson Square. Our guide DJ was welcoming, casual, professional and highly knowledgeable. Over the course of the next two hours he offered insight, context and recommendations to various parts of town while keeping things fun. We saw multiple areas we wanted to go back to that weren't on our radar prior to the trip. Those areas ended up being the itinerary for the remainder of the trip. I was very interested in food recommendations of which DJ had plenty. He was so informative that I scrapped plans for a culinary tour that I was looking at. To use his own words, no one knows food and drink in this town better than him. I can't say enough about how good an idea it is to take this tour.

    Our tour guide, Charlotte, was very entertaining and so interesting in describing the sites as we toured New Orleans. Loved the details, restaurant histories, neighborhood descriptions - we were engaged from start to finish. Loved the stop at City Park and St Louis Cemetery #3, too. Highly recommend this tour to all city visitors. Learned there is way more to New Orleans than just the French Quarter. Kudos as well to our driver Keisha. She and Charlotte make a terrific pair of guides.
