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.

      I wish I could give this 10,000 stars. It was the best things I did during my visit. Charlotte (tour guide) and Kisha (the driver) were simply amazing and worked well as a seamless team. Charlotte's wealth of knowledge, humor, professionalism was so spot-on I wish I could move in with her!! Kisha's driving was not just great driving but she also know when to stop & pull over or just slow down. Their timing was perfect.

      Absolutely a “must do” especially if you are visiting NOLA for the very first time! Do yourself a favor and make this a priority as it will give you great ideas on places to visit and see. Our tour guide Shawn was awesome, very informative and entertaining! Couldn’t have a asked for better guide. Unfortunately, I booked this tour on the very last day of our vacation so it leaves me with wanting to come back as now I am realizing everything that I have missed and didn’t get to see.

      While sitting in a cool seat I enjoyed seeing and learning about the City of New Orleans. The guide has 7 generations that have lived here. We covered every part of New Orleans learning all about this area. She told us many stories about Hurricane Katrina. We stopped in the city park and enjoyed coffe and binet. We stopped at a grave yard and learned about the Barisal process. Very interesting.
