This tour includes guided commentary and hotel pickup and drop-off.

  • See landmark attractions in addition to less-frequented districts
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included for ultimate convenience
What to expect
  • Begin your tour with pickup from your downtown or French Quarter hotel prior to your selected departure time. In an air-conditioned minibus, breeze past the mansions of Esplanade Avenue en route to City Park.

Continue through the famous Garden District, known for its mansion-lined boulevards, and onward to the Warehouse District and Faubourg Treme—a historical neighborhood well off the beaten tourist track. After a brief stop at Metairie Cemetery, your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.  Note: the cemetery may occasionally close for special events, in which case you will visit an alternate cemetery

This was a great way to start our trip! Our guide (Gary if I remember right) was fantastic and gave us so many good tips and tricks. We made a stop mid trip at Cafe du monde in city park so we could buy a benignet and use the bathroom which was a nice surprise. Also appreciated the lists he shared via text of local suggestions! I'd highly recommend doing this if you've never been to New Orleans and want a good overview and ideas to add to your trip. If you're concerned about covid our guide/driver did not wear a mask nor was it required of riders.

The bus tour was informative and gave us a good understanding of the areas around New Orleans. We were a group of 6 and had my mother who couldn’t do a walking tour and this was a fantastic way for her to see the city.

Even though we have been to New Orleans before, we learned a lot from our tour guide, Gary. He seemed to have limitless information on the city and gave thoughtful answers, not just touristy quips. He even shared a text with his favorite restaurants and sights.

Our party of 8 really enjoyed the tour yesterday. Gary was knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend to see and learn a lot about New Orleans. The stops at St. Louis # 3 Cemetery and Cafe Du Monde in City Park by NOMA we’re great! The 3 hour tour was an ideal amount of time for our group at a reasonable price. The convenience of being picked-up/drop-off at our hotel was spectacular. Hope you and your guests enjoy it as much as we did.

What an amazing city tour! We spent the afternoon “experiencing New Orleans”! Our driver/ tour guide, Andy, was very knowledgeable, giving suggestions for fun places to stop later. This was a perfect way to start our time in New Orleans!

Gary was excellent, providing a lot of insights and history of NOLA. The Katrina/9th ward portion of the tour exceeded my expectations and, for me, turned out to be the highlight. It was interesting to learn the details of the challenges NOLA faces on keeping the city “dry” and seeing it in person.
