    We had a great time! If you want a quick but informative tour this is a good one! Our tour guide was funny and super knowledgeable on the city of New Orleans!

    Very interesting tour for first-time visitors to New Orleans. The tour covers major areas of interest. The guide was very knowledgeable.

    Great information in an entertaining way. A stop for beignets and a chance to walk around one of the graveyards. S great start to our trip

    This was an enjoyable tour with lots of fun facts about NOLA. Our guide, Ken, was great and very knowledgeable. And, in case you were wondering, there is a restroom break.

    This tour was okay, but not great. I certainly know more about New Orleans than I did before, but it was just bland. Our bus driver/guide, Jude, was a very nice man and easy to hear, and some of his stories were interesting. BUT, he spoke very quickly in one run-on sentence, making it hard to understand sometimes. The worst thing was this: During his description of a sight or building, he would say, And up here is so and so, never saying if it was on our left or on our right. He would also point out things from HIS point of view in the front of the bus. So by the time those of us in the middle or back of the bus went by the sight, we would have already forgotten his commentary. He also began repeating his lame jokes and phrases. I have taken numerous City Tours, and this is probably the worst. Maybe there's just not enough to see in this city from a bus. And maybe Jude should be given some tips on his delivery.

    The tour was exciting. The bus driver Jude knew the city and its history which made for good storytelling.
    The various stops along the tour Jackson square, cemetery, city park, shotgun houses, Katrina damaged houses, etc. were great but made more interesting by Jude's detailed and in-depth historical contexts.

    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.
