I was new to NOLA and alone. Normally don’t venture far, but this bus tour made it so easy. I had 3 day pass and my first tour was right outside my hotel. . I did not get off, my first ride. Wanted to see what interest me the most, what seemed safe. Last day there I got off every stop! Going back in 2 weeks, totally purchasing tickets again!!!

touring around gives you an option to prioritize which to see first convenient to get you from point A to B staff are totally friendly courteous and helpful

We rode the bus several times. Each guide has different stories to tell and we learned new things. Very enjoyable.

Excellent way to get an overview of the city with multiple stops at major tourist attractions.

Excellent tour. Guide was very informative and pleasant
