Chris was a great tour guide. He was fun, engaging, and informative. Keisha was a bus driving boss! She maneuvered that big bus in and around some tight places. Her driving skills were impressive to say the least. Kudos to both of them for making our afternoon in New Orleans awesome! Our teenagers were even impressed and interested in the history.

Our Tour Guide was exceptional. We learned many historical and cultural facts about NOLA in addition to the comedy that was provided. Also appreciated restaurant recommendations. Wish I knew the Guides name to personally shout him out.

Ellen, our guide, was amazing. Full of great information and able to tailor the experience as the situation & traffic allowed. Friendly, helpful, and a great personality.

We got on at Stop 14 in the morning and enjoyed upstairs seating. The guide was informative and engaging. On our return the bus was full at first with only downstairs seating (difficult to see). Unfortunately. The microphone went out at Magazine Street and there was no audio. Overall, a pleasant way to see New Orleans.
