Johnathan was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and fun. He didn't read from a script, he actually knew a lot of information. He was flexible and willing to gear the tour to our interests. He knew a great spot to take a break as well. He also took a small detour to show us where current filming was taking... More

If you have even a remote interest in the movies then you must take this tour. Jonathan, your tour guide, not only is a part-time actor but also has a deep mental database of film facts to share and could also be nominated for best supporting actor in a comedy. Lots of laughs. On board film clips match movie location... More

Jonathan did a great job making the tour fun, personal, and flexible, even taking requests from our perfectly-sized group of eight. (Mine was NCIS New Orleans.) Lots of juicy stories about movies and TV shows filmed in NOLA. Interspersed with trivia and movie clips showcasing the very sites we visited. Plus, he gave us a great tip about where to... More

Jonathan was funny, knowledgeable & sweet. (Ma, my daughter & I) We were in the wrong place for the pick-up. Being from Louisiana people are either way too early or they're late...lol...he texted me & they waited for us. The tour is interactive, with movie quizzes & tv screens on backs of seats, that show film clips when you're in... More

Jonathon has got a great personality, extremely knowledgeable, engaging, witty, self-effacing and extremely organized. We loved his tour and we have been on many other similar ones. His is the best tour by far! Do this tour! Jim & Lisa Gilbert Chatham Ontario Canada

Jonathan was knowledgable, passionate and we had a great couple of hours. He tweaked the tour to meet our age group and interests. Of note the day before when there was some filming he texted us (it didn't come on our phone until later so we missed it). This personal touch however is in my view what makes this very... More

Great fun seeing where all the different movies were filmed. The tours combines visiting the sites where filming took place and then watching the movie scenes on video. Very entertaining and you get to see a good part of the city too.

My fiancé and I only had a short time in NOLA and I really wanted to do a tour. This tour was great as it started late morning and the start point was easy to find.

We had a great time with Jonathon and the other members of our tour. Gave a unique and fun perspective not only on movie and television productions but also on seeing more of the city than just the typical tourist sites.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
