    Full description
    See the best of New Orleans in comfort on one handy guided motorized tour. Hop in the minibus and let your guide lead you through the city. No New Orleans city tour would be complete without the French Quarter, the home of Jazz and Mardi Gras. Take in the lively atmosphere with music in the air and colorful, historical buildings. Travel along to Magazine Street, the Big Easy’s thoroughfare that contains plenty of eclectic shops and eateries and meanders in parallel with the Mississippi River. Head across to St Louis Cathedral to see the “Big Easy’s” oldest cemetery, complete with famous and infamous residents. Lake Pontchartrain offers incredible views and photo opportunities. See the Lower Ninth Ward, one of the places hit by Hurricane Katrina. Spot some typical steamboat houses here and remnants of Louisiana's darker history – the sugar cane plantations and colonial buildings. After your whistle-stop tour with your live guide, get dropped off at your New Orleans hotel.

    Our tour guide, Charlotte, was very entertaining and so interesting in describing the sites as we toured New Orleans. Loved the details, restaurant histories, neighborhood descriptions - we were engaged from start to finish. Loved the stop at City Park and St Louis Cemetery #3, too. Highly recommend this tour to all city visitors. Learned there is way more to New Orleans than just the French Quarter. Kudos as well to our driver Keisha. She and Charlotte make a terrific pair of guides.

    We were very impressed with the tour. The tour guide, Charlotte, had a wonderful personality and was very knowledgeable about New Orleans history. We learned first hand that there is more to NOLA than the French Quarter. I would suggest this tour on the first day of your stay because you will be introduced to the various neighborhoods which will give you ideas of where you want to go and see.

    I cannot recommend this tour enough! A great START and first impression for our trip to NOLA. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and frequently gave tips on what to do and see during the rest of our trip. We stopped in St. Louis cemetery no.3, and in city park. There was a quick restroom break mid tour and a stop for coffee/snack at cafe du monde. One of the best city tours we’ve been on in any US city.
