We visited New Orleans Louisiana for my daughter's gymnastics meet. We did this tour. Ken, our tour guide, is just excellent! This is my first time in New Orleans. The city is just lovely. It reminds me of San Francisco Ca without the hills. The tour is not boring at all. Ken made it very interesting and funny. He didn't... More

Gary was a terrific tour guide - knowledgeable, garrulous, friendly, funny (no, I'm not related) but I've taken a lot of tours around the world, and his was wonderful. I learned a lot. The coach was clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

He explained the causes and effects of Katrina, the architecture, the cost of living and more. He also peppered it with a great sense of humor. I would... More

Hurricanes Katrina may have been over 10 years ago but the historical significance of the event is still relevant. Grey Line tours does an excellent job of providing an overview of the event, the city's levees and canals and the impact on the residents. The three hour tour takes you into areas of the city that the average tourist would... More

Took this tour with Gray Line Tours. It was very informative and gave you a whole new perspective for what these people went though. Our tour director John was very passionate about the plight of the people trying to recover and knew so much about what had gone on and why.
