  • This tour was very entertaining. Our bus driver/tour guide I believe his name was Glenn gave nonstop information about the city infused with history, jokes, and pop culture tidbits. We stopped at St. Louis No 3 Cemetary and the City Park/Sculpture Garden. This tour is a great way to see the city, including the outskirts of the French Quarter.

  • Excellent tour to get a sense of the city. Best way to visit a cemetery. Excellent tour.

  • Our tour started out nice but then turned blase: our bus was nice, clean and cool when we first started out on the tour which was nice for the hot and humid day however, the air conditioning system failed and it became uncomfortable. Our driver and tour guide kinda kept us informed and traded for another bus about half way through the tour. Secondly, our tour guide was a kind gentleman but we didn't really enjoy his sense of humor. Concerning Viator, we were sent an email for a 10 discount when we purchased the tickets. When the discount wasn't applied to the purchased I reached out and filed a claim for the 10 - that was over a week ago and I haven't received a credit yet.

  • Tour guide, Jude, spoke very fast so it was hard to get all of the information he was sharing with us. Otherwise, it took us by some interesting places. I wish that they had taken the time we spent at city park 30 minutes and cut it down a little so we could have spent more than 10 minutes at the cemetery.

  • it was ok

  • Really entertaining driver who clearly had lots of knowledge about NOLA. Saw lots of landmark buildings from the bus and stopped at a cemetery and city park. Would have liked to have got out more but in the time we had it wasn't possible. That said, we were given a running commentary throughout and were able to take pics from the bus. The windows were really clean too which meant I could take behind glass.
    Thanks to the driver for this glowing recommendation of revisiting city park. We went again under our own steam and weeere so glad we did. The sculpture garden was fab.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The tour was pretty good, but our driver didn't seem to know much about the history of the area. He was informed re: the cemeteries. We had the opportunity to walk throughout one cemetery interesting. If you take this tour on your first day, as we did, you will find areas that may interest you and you can return to them at your leisure. For that reason I would recommend this tour.

  • Very informative and enjoyable tour. This tour was absolutely terrific due to the driver/guide Gerald. He gave non-stop information, while injecting humor and using a professional delivery. not monotone, like some other tours we have been on. Also he even re-capped at the end of the tour! Also gave restaurant recommendations.

  • A good tour of a variety of sites. A nice excursion if you are staying down by Bourbon St. as it is a different perspective of the city.
