    New Orleans city tour was excellent. I recommend anyone coming to the city to take it to get the background if the city's history. I find the city in current times is pre Katrina and post Katrina which opens one's eyes. We even had a local citizen on the tour who said she learned so much about her home. You will get a bonus if David is your tour driver. He is a gem!!!

Our tour guide/bus driver was phenomenal! He took us to see all of the major sites in New Orleans and some of the minor sure too and he was really so interesting to listen to. You should not do New Orleans without doing this tour.

This tour was wonderful. The guy was knowledgeable and you were sitting on a bus with the air conditioner on a very hot day. We saw places we haven't seen before coming to New Orleans are 3rd time.

The tour was educational and the tour guide was humorous which made the experience a delight.

We enjoyed ourselves the tour was amazing everyone was amazing!!!
