Very entertaining tour
We took the tour with Chris (guide) and Kiran (driver). Chris was very entertaining, funny and informative. We learned a lot about the city that we never had before. We didn’t interact with Kiran, but as Chris said, ‘he kept us alive.’ Great tour.

A must do tour in New Orleans
This tour is very informative. Linda and Elroy added to the adventure. They were very friendly and professional. I recommend making a whole day of this tour. Get off the bus at your point of interest and get back on when you're ready. Then, ride until your next point of interest.

Find another tour!
The scenery was great. However we would have rather gotten true history of the city . We got the male tour guides’ very very slanted views of his version of “history of New Orleans”. Big turn off for our first day in the city. Don’t spew your politics at work, just because you have a microphone. New Orleans is beautiful city be proud to share it with tourist!! ❤️

Chris and Roxie Rock!!
We loved the tour! Chris was so funny, and our fantastic driver Roxie guided us around town. The only sad thing is they don't operate every day of the week. We bought a 3-day pass that ended up being a 2day pass for the same price. This bus helped us see most of the town, and we learned so much from our guide. We also did the walking tours too. I plan to go back and do it again!
