It was a great experience. It took us outside the downtown and French Quarter and was exactly what we were looking for. The guide was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed his stories.

The tour guide was very informative and friendly. I wish we made more stops. We only stopped at the cemetery. But I do feel like I know New Orleans way better now. I feel like I have to do a tour to every place I visit.

I've been to New Orleans several times but this is my first time doing a tour. Our guide Sean and driver Corey were amazing! We learned so much. It was perfect.

Excellent! Brian was a great guide. Taught us a lot and showed us a lot. However, I would not recommend being on the 4PM tour as the end of it was in the dark and therefore had limited visibility.

Tyler was the consummate guide, his knowledge of New Orleans was staggering and I could not imagine a better tour than this. It was great yo see outside of the French Quarter and get a sense of the history of NOLA. From wars to civil rights to jazz, voodoo and Katrina, right up to modern day. Could not recommend this tour enough

Our tour guide, Tyler, was incredible. He absolutely made the tour! He was one of the best tour guides we have ever had. He was knowledgeable and very engaging. We did this tour the first day of our trip and used his recommendations for the rest of our stay. The bus was comfortable as well. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone.

This was the best tour I have ever experienced! The staff was incredibly knowledgeable on the diverse history of New Orleans. This was way better than any book or movie and I am an avid reader. The rich recent history as well as the origins of New Orleans history is shared and put into an economic perspective.

I wanted to get an overview of the city of New Orleans,and this 2-3 hour tour was perfect for that reason.We traveled by bus to see all around New Orleans and surrounding areas, and made 2 stops. We walked through a cemetery where we were told some interesting stories about the people buried there and how they did the burials. Then we stopped at Cafe du Monde to get delicious beignets and coffee.Because it was so crowded at the cafe, the 20 minutes we were allowed before having to return to the bus was not long enough. I actually brought my beignets and coffee on the bus. Shaun, our tour guide, was very energetic, funny, interesting, and informative.My only complaint was that the tour was supposed to start at 9, and I was called at 8:40 that they were in front of my hotel already waiting for me!
