Really enjoyed the tour. We booked on line which was really straightforward. We loved the fact that if you download the app it will give you a detailed map and also lets you know the time of the next bus at the relevant stops.

Buses were nice and comfortable. Sound was good from the narrator. Just did not like that some sights closed at a certain time which was not listed in the tour pamphlet which we were then unable to see some sights on our tour.

The NOLA tour was amazing! The tour time of 90 minutes was perfect (because I sat up top in the sun). The guide was funny and insightful. I was in town for a business conference and did not have time to hop on/hop off, but it was an enjoyable trip to see a lot of the city.

Bill was amazing. This was my 2nd time taking the tour and it was like a brand new tour. He recommended free and affordable things we could do, gave us so much history on the city and he even remembered us later that day when we hopped back on the bus.

The location to hop on was across the street from our hotel. It gave us an idea of what was within walking distance for us. The tour guide was very helpful giving information about certain sites.
